wedding wish wednesday #22: keep it small
I was talking to one of my girlfriends the other night. She was telling me that while she was planning her wedding she would get phones calls from co-workers and childhood friends inquiring if they were invited to her wedding. Awkward.
I must admit, I have experienced something similar to this and it makes me feel awful. (I felt like a deer caught in the headlights and managed to laugh it off while changing the subject rapidly.... sooooo.... yikes!)
Our wedding will be small. We want it that way. But, it's difficult to pick and choose our nearest and dearest. We could very well fill auditoriums with the people in our lives (especially since I'm still a student, I could probably invite my entire class and faculty!) and My Guy has loads of friend/co-workers from his work and grad school. And what about all the friends whose weddings I have attended in the past? Believe me. If money wasn't an option, we'd consider inviting everyone we know.
However, we can't. And we won't. But through the process, I hope people understand.
