Myself and my partner are looking at a just for two of us wedding. But we are going to invite his mum and my dad as we speak to them both on a weekly if not daily basis. His dad is our landlord but other than that we don't really talk. My mum had a big argument and no longer lives in the country. Is it wrong for us to not invite them? With not inviting them we don't think it would be appropriate to invite our 3 brothers.
Invite whoever the heck you want. Its your wedding. And if you offend someone, well there we are x
We didnt invite my husbands family accept his step mum and her family. So we didnt invite his mum or step dad, cousins or anything, they didnt give a damn about us or our wedding, so she didnt get invited😂 still dont regret to this day!!
Cost may be a factor you can use here. A 2 2 witnesses ceremony is usually about £75 if you book it on the right day. They are far cheaper than 2 lots of guests ceremonies.
If you invite another 4 people you could double or triple the ceremony cost.
Invite who you want! It’s your wedding, it’s about what YOU both want, got nothing to do with anyone else!
I'm not inviting most of my stepdads family to any part of my wedding, hes one of 6 who have kids and they some of them have kids even tho we live in same town i don't see or speak to most of them
Whatever you do you’ll upset someone so just please yourselves then at least you’re happy! Be brave & good luck 🍀
I didn't invite my dad, and my husbands mum was unable to attend. Worked out well for us
We Didn't invite anyone and just had an elopement package wedding in Devon. We got ready together and walked down together ❤
It's your wedding you invite who you want you never going to please everyone but as long as you 2 are happy with your choices that's all that matters
Your day your way is how it should be. Invite who you want or no one at all. We are having an elopement wedding in Cornwall. Just the 2 of us no stress no hassle.
Invite who you want to invite, just make sure they know who is not invited then they can make their own decisions. I didn't invite my whole dad's family for various reasons but also didn't invite some family members partners. Honestly we didn't miss them and if we did it again there would probably be less people invited 😂
Its your wedding invite who you want to
I agree with tess it's your happiness and your day your life
We had 6 additional people with us when we got married. You do what's best and right for you. We went for a lovely meal after and drinks in the evening. Its what WE wanted.
We are not inviting any family. Both been married before so this time, were taking the kids and a few friends and hiring an air BnB for us all and making a weekend of it 😁
It's your day. If you want to keep it just you two I would suggest an elopement. They are beautiful hassle-free packages in paradise abroad! you can always come back and have a little party with whomever wants to be civilised....
I didn’t invite my uncle’s wife because she doesn’t speak to me or anybody else in my family. I regret it now to be honest because it meant that my uncle didn’t come either (which I fully get because I wouldn’t go to somebody’s wedding if my husband was excluded from it either). I now feel that I missed out on having my uncle there (who I really love by the way and he is an important part of my life and always has been since I was born) because I couldn’t look past the fact that his wife doesn’t speak to me or my family. Maybe she wouldn’t have come anyway but my uncle would perhaps feel more comfortable about coming if she was also on the invite. I don’t know, I wish I did it differently.
Your wedding, your call.
If you think they’ll make an issue of it, maybe try to balance how bad that would be, vs the inconvenience/upset of having them there on the day, and see which is easier to live with.
Honestly invite who you want. It's your day, your way.
With weddings tbere is always someone unhappy about not being invited.
Go with what you think is right. X
It’s your wedding 💒
Neither of my parents came to mine 🤷🏽♀️
You can invite who you want, my sister only had my parents there and none one else.
I've sacket it all off just me and my man getting married in thailand its easier 🤣
I was lucky to get married in Sri Lanka. Just the 2 of us. But would have been just as beautiful on our own with total strangers as witnesses. Even if you have a thousand guests. As you take your vows it just the two of you. So have a wonderful day and a happy life.
Me and my hubby just had our parents and no one else. Just do what you want to. I loved our day even though we upset some family members, I wouldn't change it because it was our day. I tried to put the ring on the wrong finger and panicked because it wouldn't fit... Glad there weren't loads of people to see me do that!🤣🤣
Me my hubby kids and parents went off to Gretna and we got married there just the few of us and it was the best day ever do what’s right for you xx
I got married in Las Vegas just me husband and both our parents was a though not inviting our family as its big and we are all close but I still wouldn’t change it for the would was the best day ever and all we had to think about was our selfs for the whole day any no worry about pleasing anyone else ☺️
Just asking for an opinion as me and my fiancé are planning to get married in October this year but with Covid still about my in-laws are concerned that they won’t be able to ignore the social distancing rules about giving hugs and kisses to their son and new daughter-in-law!
We are both living with my family at the moment so obviously there’s no social distancing between us.
Do will cancel or go ahead knowing that they will be very uncomfortable? Help
If you would really like to get married with those that small number I wouldn’t worry too much about it! My husband and I just had us, the pastor and both of our Mum’s there. His Stepdad and sister were also there but no one minded at all. Of course people would have liked to be there but they all understood and just wanted to support us
