This is my first post so I hope I do this right!
My fiancé and I were engaged October 2013. We planned our wedding for October 2014 and 6 weeks before the wedding (August 2014) we decided to cancel it based on some issues we felt we needed to resolve before getting married. It was a joint decision and because we were paying for the entire wedding ourselves and it was a DIY wedding on fiancé's parents farm, no one but us lost any money. No one had bought any plane tickets either so we were thankful for that. Everyone was very understanding EXCEPT for fiance's family (because I was married previously and they are very religious and traditional they assumed it was all my fault and blamed me).
We are now beginning to talk about planning a wedding and setting a date, but we want to do it differently than the last time. Originally we wanted something smallish, about 150 invited MAX. We ended up being pressured by his parents for the last wedding to invite family we didn't care to and a lot of church members that we didn't want to and ended up with 220.
My question is, how do we handle a new wedding when we don't intend to invite the same people to this one, and how do we send invites to the new one without it being awkward?
We appreciate any suggestions!
