My FH has no family on his side, how can I make it feel less overwhelming being surrounded by only my Family?

    Hi, I’m planning my wedding right now and FH also has a very small guest lists...so I’ve cut mine down to only my closest family and friends- we are simply saying “we are having a small and intimate wedding”...like you I felt that my FH was going to overwhelmed by the sheer volume of people on my side...

    My husband's parents passed away when he was a kid. His side was smaller than mine. All hus co workers and friends made up for the number of my side od family. He was fiod with that.

    I'm sure in the same manner, your FH will appreciate peole he knows and close to him are there for him.

    That is very unfortunate; but, I know exactly how you are feeling as my fiancé is not close with his family at all! If you have the option of inviting plenty of his friends, do it. It will make him feel a lot better and when it's time to mingle, he will be able to feel comfortable and not only have your family all over him. Maybe some co-workers he is close with is an option as well.

    I would ask if there are friends or maybe co workers that he has a good rapport with someone to make him feel at least comfortable.

    Perhaps he has some close friends that are like family. Why don't you discuss it with him. He may not feel overwhelmed at all, but may feel your family is his family.

    We had a similar issue. Hubby ‘s family is MUCH larger than mine. I had my bestie there as part of my family and friends who are like family to me, so that made me feel better.

    No family at all? Not even a cousin or something? It might be difficult for him to not feel overwhelmed by your family since they will be the only family in attendance but if they all get along well it should be fine. I assume there will be other guests as well so there is probably going to be a good mix of people he can interact with throughout the day.
