Is it alright to have more friends invited than family?

 

Reason I ask is because FI is only inviting his parents (he's an only child of divorced parents).

 

Obviously my parents and sister are invited. My mom wants me to invite other family, but I come from a HUGE family. My mom is 1 of 9... So for me to pick and choose is unfair and just too complicated. We were thinking of keeping it to just the parents and then our closest friends. With our bridal party the total of invitees is 40. Is this okay?

That's exactly what we did!! I have a very small family so it would've have mattered but my FI family is huge. We invited parents, grandparents (only applicable to him and they aren't coming) and siblings. He also invited one uncle but that uncle is only a few years older than him, one of his closest friends and groomsmen so it doesn't really count haha.

 

We're expecting around 50 people so the rest are friends.  It would've been to hard to pick and choose what family members and if we invited his whole family he wouldn't have been able to invite any friends and I would've just been able to invite my Mom, Dad, sister and brother in law, that's how big it is. I wasn't on board with having 45 of his family members there and 5 of mine, luckily he wasn't either haha.

 

Do what you guys want to go, invite who you really want to spend the day with.

Hi lovies Life is so hard ! I'm sitting on the beach on Amelia Island with a rum and coke laughing at all my new crazy friends. Lol I'm thinking maybe I should start a new business. Since I fly for free I should have brides pay my taxes and a small fee and ill hand deliver all their stuff. Hahahah ah Help pay for my wedding. I'm horrible as I sit on All the forums I'm like " how can I make a business out of this?"

Um...I have less than 20 family members, 'aunties' and 'uncles' and 34 friends invited.  I also am only inviting one of my first cousins.  Let me show you how worried I am about that:

You do YOU.  And if anybody gives you grief, please refer them to this wise young lady:
