How to have the perfect small wedding: Six dos and don’ts (link)
Let’s face it though.
When planning a wedding, you are bound to upset at least one person, but at the end of the day, it is Your Day, and your choice as to who is invited to share it.
Family politics, divorced parents, sibling rivalry all raise their head, and I’m sure many of us have an embarrassing aunt or uncle who tends to get loud when they’ve had a few.
My sister has never forgiven us for our quiet registry office ceremony with seven guests followed by a meal in a pub. She’d promised both of her daughters they could be our bridesmaids, so naturally had to live with their disappointment after the event.
She was not one of our invitees by the way, but I don’t think the girls hold it against us, even if they can actually remember as it was so long ago.
