Hello, I have a bit of a predicament and wanted some advice if anyone has any.. Basically me and my partner have serial issues with family, to the point where we both believe it would be really awkward to invite everyone but everyone is expecting an invite. Neither me or my partner are big party people and therefore have been considering just having a ceremony of a few friends, but we still want to celebrate with everyone. What should we do?

Why don’t you have a small intimate wedding with just the nearest and dearest and then at another point have a party where everyone is invited to celebrate your recent wedding? Your day, do it your way!

We are doing something similar - about 15-20 nearest and dearest at our ceremony, and then the reception later in the day for everyone. Just do what you want, people will understand!

We had the same problem and was actually worried. Not massive party people either. Instead we decided to invite who we wanted and if they all came Great if not no bother and if anything kicked off they would be removed. Everyone told the same thing... This is our day not a Jeremy Kyle style family reunion

We are having a small wedding. Just mums and our adult children. Going on honeymoon for two weeks then coming back and having an evening reception for everyone else.
Good luck in whatever you choose. At end of day it's your wedding. Do what's right for you x
