My fiance and I are getting married in September and we’re putting together our wedding guest list and it’s becoming a battle. We have lots of friends and family we want to invite and need to pare the list down to a reasonable number, but the sticking point for her seems to be kids. Many of our friends have kids, but she’s suggesting that the only kids to get invited are nieces, nephews or godchildren. If they are a child of someone I’m not very close with, or haven’t seen recently, they shouldn’t be invited. I disagree. While I don’t think all these kids should attend, I think it should be on a case by case basis. This sounds so romantic doesn’t it?
Meanwhile she thinks everyone she’s ever met should be at the wedding. When I suggest perhaps her university room mate who she hasn’t seen in years shouldn’t be there, she gets upset. It’s ridiculous! How do we come to some sort of agreement or compromise? – LL in Cambridge
