Our Guest List
...has been completed and finalized!
BIG weight off of our backs. We've cut, added, cut, added ....
Prior to being engaged I thought of my wedding day... A LOT. Everyday, a million times a day. After I started planning, the meaning of my wedding day became more heartfelt rather than a painted picture. Meaning I've learned to look at things in a completely different prospective. Make sense?
Basically, it's really sunk in heavy that this day is about US.
Who cares what anyone else thinks about anything...
Me & My Groom and all our loved ones there together.
From the Past and most of all, Our Present!
When I look back in my Wedding Albums, maybe I will have a few
Oh we we're really good friends at this time in our lives, but what I hope we say is
Look, our friendships have come so far.
Aaron and I both come from two large families. His dad is the youngest of 14.
My Mom is one of Nine. They all have children and some of those children have had children.
Aaron's Parents have lived in our small town their entire lives. 90% of Aaron's friends parents are Paul & Kandi's [My In Laws] Best Friends. Aaron and I both have a wide range of friends, which describes our Bridal Party .
No doubt were we going to have a big wedding.
However, when sitting down and deciding who... it became tough.
Really tough. After 4 different cuts/adds... We have our final count!
Children [16 & Under] -34
= 341 Total.
Most all the Bridal magazines, books, & Bridal shows I have read or been too says, You should expect 75% of your guest list to attend.
341 x .75 = 256
We have been planning to sit 300 people at our Reception.
We're very happy with 252!
Let's hope everyone RSVPs & no one rudely comes unexpected.
