The wedding planning is underway and we have picked a venue that it's perfect for us. But now I am having serious anxiety issues and really stressing about nobody coming. Due to a range of issues I don't have very many close friends, and most of my family is far away, I am just worried that we will plan our perfect day and no one will be there to see it. It's really putting a dampner on things and I don't want to get to into organising the day. It's become so overwhelming I don't know what to do.

Make sure you let people know the date in good time, perhaps call them and chat, then they will know that it is a personal invitation, even when they get their formal one. I am sure all will be well and you are just getting pre-wedding nerves. Wishing you a wonderful wedding and marriage to the one you love. x

There will always be someone who doesn't turn up. If you are inviting your closest friends and family they will be there. Just let then know plenty of time on advance.

Check with the most important people that they can make it - we did exactly that! Asked the most important people to us if they could do a certain date - all agreed and it was booked for that date. We know there will be some that won't be able to come, but the nearest and dearest will be there.

The people that love you will be there and make the effort ️ as for the others then you wouldn’t miss them too much on your photos if they don’t show xx

That was one of my fears as well but everyone who RSVP’d yes came to our wedding and we got married on a Friday. Honestly don’t worry about it people make the effort and they love being a part of your special day.

I'm stressing about this too. I keep putting off sending my invites as I don't want people telling me there not coming 😔. My fiance keeps telling me as long as we are both there that's all that matters xx

It’s more important that you are both there! Anyone else is a bonus. I’d say relax but if such a phrase helped a lot fewer people would worry. As long as you two are there no one else matters. You’re marrying each other- not the whole room of people.

Im not going to stress about any of that, im just going to enjoy my engagement to the man of my dreams, content in the knowledge that our closest friends and family will make the effort to be there and thats what matters x
