Has anyone had to deal with backlash from their family regarding your guest list? My future hubby and I just really want a low key and intimate wedding. Neither of us enjoys the attention and we've decided that regardless of what we decide to do for the reception, the ceremony will be close-knit with those we're closest to. I personally could care less about a party and would prefer to not have to invite and pay for 150 people (I'm cheap and would rather spend money on a badass honeymoon). FH has agreed that we should keep the reception intimate as well.
I'm expecting a lot of backlash from our families if our guest list is kept to 30 - 35 ppl which would be our parents, siblings, grandparents and bridal party. Has anyone had to deal with the same and how did you approach the issue? Help a girl out, I'm stressin'!
