@cupcait927 (love the name btw!) I hear ya - did not think I'd have a headache with it with so little people. I had some issues with people who can't sit together and divorced parents, etc. I took a 2nd look this morning and tweaked a couple of items and I'm done. If nothing else, it's only for an hour for dinner. People can deal if they don't like it. @jco619 that's awesome! Sounds like us. Considering I wanted to elope, any wedding was going to be huge for me lol Our guest list was 99, and we ended up with 70 even, including us. Yay for small weddings! :-)
@jcarder13 wow, sounds like you and I have a lot of the same issues! I'm a 9/27 bride, too :-) I've had ongoing issues with a bridesmaid, chasing down RSVPs, people changing/rescinding RSVPs, my mom invited 3 people without telling me (say what!?), half of my family declining (which actually gave me a sigh of relief, based on history), and dealing with moving 2 hours away for my fiance's new job right after we get back from the honeymoon.
I've come to realize that pretty much no wedding escapes without drama. People disappoint, things go wrong, and stress happens. I heard it before, and I think it's very true: weddings will show you people's true colors. People you thought would have your back don't, people you wouldn't have thought would step up do and sometimes the wedding you thought you were gonna have isn't what you have, but at the end of the day...you get married and that's the best thing ever. I'm focusing on the positives - my family declined, so we have more room and will be surrounded by those who truly care and support us. We had issues with my bachelorette but my 3 oldest friends (only 1 of whom is a bridesmaid) showed up without question and helped celebrate - which reminded me why they are my mainstays. Extra people? Wow, they must really want to celebrate with us, that's awesome! In 5 years, we're all gonna laugh at how stressed we were and how AWESOME our wedding still was :-)
Good luck with everything!
