Small Wedding- Bridal Party and close friends not invited
My fiance and I are getting married in Colorado. This is more of a destination wedding for us since we are from SD. We have decided to invite just family (parents, grandparents uncles, aunts, cousins.) Because we we didn't like the idea that our best friends wouldn't be there, we did decide to have 4 friends each and make them our bridal party. We are running into a problem with how to tell our close friends who aren't in the wedding party and aren't invited. Both of us have been telling co-workers and others that we are not close with that we are having just family. We just don't know what to tell our other close friends that are not even invited to the wedding. They will be hurt to find out that we have 4 friends each and they are not one of them! Please any advice will help!!
