I think this is the hardest part of planning any wedding, who should you invite?
How many people are you going to want to be there?
You might be thinking, it’s going to be a small wedding… maybe 15 people max so how hard could it be?
Well this is what I thought, but then the situation where one of your family members say but it won’t be fair if you don’t invite them bal bla bla… and then before you know it you feel over whelmed and stressed because you don’t want to feel like a bad person for not inviting certain people.
When that situation arises, you have to be ready to stand your ground! You should not be made to feel bad for not inviting someone, if it’s not what you want then don’t feel like you have to do it! Just calmly explain to them that’s not the plan and that you have both discussed whats important to you and how you are going to do this.
People tend to get lost in the whole planning process, sometimes brides end up taking a back seat because of mums or grandparents or whoever tries to take over, not because they mean to be a pain in the bum but because they think they are helping when really all you want is to sort things out yourself and not have people interfere when you don’t need them too.
The people you should invite are the ones that you care about deeply, the ones that you know SHOULD be there, the ones that love you unconditionally and want to see you marry the man or woman of your dreams, the ones that you adore and they adore you. <3
Don’t let anyone make it more complicated than it should be. 🙂
