This has been an ongoing dilemma as the way my family and friends are set up I always just pictured myself doing a lavish elopement and honey moon.
My fiancé wanted more of a reception, with his parents and friends there. I voiced to him how uncomfortable I would be in this setting since it will be mostly his invites and friends and I will end up feeling like a guest at my own wedding. He always reassured me so I compromised and even with our smaller guest count of approximately 50-55 people they are mostly his invites.
I asked this in a forum before and people said “look at it as people are there just to celebrate the both of you”. That’s really not that easy.
We sent out electronic invites and it allows you to see when they’re opened. Many of my moms extended family and a few closer friends who I invited have opened it but no one has rsvp’d.
Unfortunately, I am taking it personal and I am very uncomfortable and it’s making me really uneasy about the wedding reception…
And the thought of then having to reach out and ask my small number invites if they’re actually coming and is making me feel even worse.
