So here's my problem: Do I wait 1 year and 8 months and have roughly 60 guests or do I wait only 11 months and have 20 guests?
The problem: I want to be married - NOW. My fiancée and I have been together for 6 years. We are in our 20s and because of finances (and beliefs about marriage) we still live at home with our parents. It's killing me.
My parents are paying for the reception and they want us to wait an extra 9 months so that they can save up. However, if we have only 20 guest then my parents can afford it easily. The 20 guests would be only family - only his best man would be unrelated to us. I would have to use his sister has my MOH. Of course, the 60 guest list would include some of my friends and all my cousins and aunts and uncles, which the 20 doesn't.
I'm not close to any of my family, so that's not really an issue. The issue is will I regret having a small wedding without any of my friends there?
