My fiance and I have been looking for venues and started putting together the guest list. Ideally I would've loved for this to be a small intimate wedding, but it looks like that's not happening.
My guests come to about 500. We have been going over this, and I am willing to cut my guest list but his family is not willing to do the same.
I have thrown out the idea of giving out passes and making this invitation only, but his family thinks its rude to turn people away who don't have a pass. So now, I'm a little overwhelmed.
Any suggestions as to how we can cut the guest list a little without anyone feeling bad?
