Within 24 hours, we've both had wedding meltdowns. The guest list is this week's (month's? year's?) frustration. Mike has a huge family, and we're running into an etiquette issue with who to invite. The problem at hand is if we invite one relative, do we have to invite them all? If Grandma's sister Milly is invited, do we have to invite Grandma's brother Earl? What if we're close to Milly, but don't know Earl well (or at all?)? For a lot of reasons (MONEY! NOT WANTING TO LOOK OUT AT A SEA OF STRANGERS! MAYBE?), we obviously just want to invite people we know! We're being told we have to invite all or none when it comes to distant relatives, and we're unsure of how to handle it. The last thing we want to do is cause family drama llama.
On a happier note, here are some visuals.
These are our invitations! I love the ivory swirls. Despite the pictures having different shades of brown, the programs and invitations are made by the same company and coordinate unbelieveably.
