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!

    • Greetings. I'm really confused because my younger sister's marriage is fixed. Now the date is fixed for April 15th. We are planning to conduct a function only with minimal members. I neec to find out a best wedding venue or organizer. I need your advice which will be really helpful. Thank you
    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
