Hi all. We got engaged in June of this year and plan to get married in April...However while planning like crazy since the engagement we realized we needed to cut the guest list down a lot and do a smaller wedding and then maybe at our 5 or 10 year anniversary we will be more financially stable and we can have a larger event to renew our vows. My family is large with my parents both remarried and step siblings and so on....That said, FI works for a good size company and has for the past 5 years. I helped him get the job (long story) and he is now as of 2 months ago a supervisor/assistant manager...Anyway over the course of the past 5 years we have developed many friendships thru his job and otherwise and I feel bad we can't invite some of those people to the actual wedding. I was wondering is it super tacky and rude to have a little engagement celebration in like January inviting some of his close friends from work and our handful who we can't include in the real wedding to the local pizza joint for pizza, their salad bar, and some beers? Just like a hangout with the coworkers and few other friends we can't afford to invite to celebrate us getting married? I am not asking for gifts and I wouldn't expect any so I don't want to look greedy in anyway but just want people to know we care about them as friends and wanted to celebrate with them too...Not sure how to go about it though....Its hard when people ask constantly so I want them all to feel important to us. Thanks!
