Who to invite, who not to invite and what to do about the non-invitees. I had a friend, who happens to be a non-invitee, tell me that if they are a true friend and someone who cares about you and your future marriage, it will not matter to them and they will understand the limitations that we all face when it comes to budget and our personal sanity! I totally agree with her and now believe that we have made a good decision in having a small wedding. Go with what works for you. As the saying goes " Those who matter don't mind and those who mind don't matter!"

But that's your wedding, you can invite whoever you want to invite and people should not be hurt when they weren't invited. This is going to be your day, not theirs. ;)

One of my bridesmaids sent me your post only a day after I had shared virtually the SAME story with her! I have the same exact sentiment about it! I mean I don't think people really realize how much a wedding costs and that can easily skyrocket with the number of guests that the couple has! It's obvious they weren't invited, but it's tactless to ask the bride and groom about it. We were asked if the un-invitee could come as a guest of a mutual invited friend. My answer: point blank.no. This isn't a birthday party… just sayin.' Thanks for sharing my sentiment!!

Wow. My moms side of the family. My cousin is one of those people that have to constantly CRAP on you about anything. Somethings always wrong and there is never anything good in the world. She sent me a nasty email and totally raked me over the coals over nothing.

CHOP!!! Its been coming for a long time. We havant sent out invitations yet and have decided not to invite them. If they pull that drama in everyday life whats going to happen at the wedding ? I have no need for that drama on our wedding day!

Cousin Sarah you and your complete drama act are not invited.

Our venue has enough space, but we want to limit our numbers to 125-150 due to the high cost. Our debate is similiar, but has to do with whether or not people can bring kids! It is going to be an evening reception at an elegant restaurant, so it really isn't the place for young children! We settled on just having the kids in the wedding be there, but now when I tell people that, they say, "Oh, I understand, but I can bring my kids, right?!" What do you say to that??!!!!! It floors me how rude some people can be! How can I "pick and choose" kids? We have to pay just about the same price for kids as adults, so we truly can't afford it! It puts us in such a difficult spot!
