I will say this and I know everyone does, but the guest list is driving me nuts and probably caused me the most stress.
Kevin and I are rich in friends. We both individually have a lot of friends from growing up, high school and college. Then we have a lot of Charlotte friends and couples that we hang out with often. We feel so fortunate.
But when it comes to a wedding, we simply cannot invite everyone. We have friends that we have been to their wedding as recent as this past year and cannot invite them to ours. I feel SO badly about it but it's reality. We cannot invite 500 people to our wedding or even 300. It just isn't possible....for a multitude of reasons. Mainly because we simply don't want that many people at our wedding and quite frankly, we haven't won the lottery recently so we just can't do it.
As Kevin reminds me, if they are true friends, they will understand. And I know he is right. But I just have to be told that very often these days.
So, as we make our final list to send to the calligrapher at the end of the month, I just have to realize that there will probably be hurt feelings. But unfortunately it's the way the cookie crumbles and I hope that they will still be our friends and understand.
