Too Many Darn Guests

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

We are planning a DW in Tuscany and things are getting a bit out of hand. 

 

I want to keep the list to 30-40, but FH is having issues with excluding friends and family. 

 

We have went through several rounds of elimination and can't seem to get the list below 150  :(

 

Any suggestions for trimming back?

 

Thanks!

cutting more than 100 guests is a lot!  good luck!  How many of those people are family?  one thing to consider is how many you think will actually come.  I let my mom invite as many of her friends as she wanted because i figured out of all of them maybe one couple would come and that wouldn't put me over the top.  As it turns out none of her friends came and she and my dad hosted a party for us after the wedding in their home town and invited all their friends.  It worked out great.  You could also consider having a local party somewhere.  hope you can figure it out - Tuscany sounds amazing! congrats!

@@Nickkifu84 congrats on choosing to have a Destination wedding.  All friends and family have a role in your life. the big question,you might want to ask yourself is the importance of that role. For example when last did he communicate with his friends?  Sometimes you just have to explain to friends that , you are choosing to have a really super small wedding. People do understand.     

 

Happy Planning!

The after reception is a good idea - keep the wedding ceremony intimate and then celebrate with family and friends

That is what we plan after we return form our destination wedding in Mexico
