I'm American and my fiance is Egyptian, and we'll be getting married in Egypt next August. We'll also be living there after the wedding. I have also already lived there for a while, so it's only really a destination wedding for my family/friends, not his. With that being said, Egypt is very far and my family isn't the travelling type (almost nobody has a passport), so I don't expect a lot of them to come. I do however have to invite everyone, and I have a big family; my dad has 12 siblings and I am close to all of my aunts/uncles/cousins. My question is, how do I go about invitations since I know many people won't be able to make it? I was thinking of inviting more friends under the assumption that most of my family won't come, but that seems risky because there is always that small chance that people will take this as their once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to Egypt, and all show up. My fiance will have a lot of family/friends there since they are almost all already in Egypt, so I also don't want to run the risk of having hardly anyone from my side if I invite only the number of guests that my budget allows for.
