How To Guide For: Explaining To Someone Why They Aren't Invited To Your Wedding
I was having lunch with an old co-worker who just got engaged and she plans on having her wedding in the next 8-12 months. We were discussing her guest list and she (the bride to be) explained to me how she wished she could invite everyone that asked her and everyone that she knew but she couldn't. The bride to be then asked me how does she explain to someone that she knows why they aren't invited to her wedding. I told the bride to be to let the person asking know that your wedding will be for family and close friends only. But I've never been married or engaged. So I wanted to get other women's opinion and I went around the restaurant we were having lunch at and asked other women that are married or in the process of getting married how they would answer this question. One bride to be told me that she informed the person asking to attend her wedding that she couldn't invite her due to her budget limitations. Another bride to be explained that she lets people know that her wedding day will be a private and intimate affair only for family and really close friends. I thought these were great answers because no one walks away feeling uncomfortable.
