I am having such a hard time making my guest list.
My fiancé and I want a small wedding because he is from out of the country. So whether we had it here or there, we would need a small wedding because one of us would end up with way less guests. We felt that this wasn’t fair and either way one of us would be unhappy.
Anyways, we chose to have it here because his immediate family was more willing to make the trip, but we decided to keep it to 15 people each. This also fits with our feelings about spending a ton of money on a wedding.Anyways, I have 2 uncles and they both have a wife and 2 kids. One of my four cousins is married with 2 children. Out of all of these people, I am only in contact with one of my uncles. Originally, I decided not to invite any of them because that is 11 people. However my one uncle, I am so close with. I lived with him for a couple months, we visit every year and text every few months. It makes me sad thinking about not having him there. But I also have 0 desire to take up my entire guest list on people I don’t ever talk to.Anyways, I know I can’t just invite my uncle without inviting his wife and my other uncle and so on. I’m feeling like it’s all or nothing but it’s a really hard choice to make. I’m wondering what others thoughts might be on this.Why is the guest list the most stressful part?!
