It's funny how sometimes things can't just come easy.
For example, our current issue being the guest count. Eerrrr. What we would like is a very small reception of 50 people, no children, intimate, and classy. With a follow up reception of potluck, children, no fuss, fun. Problem is, is that sometimes people like to disagree with your opinions on how you want to have your wedding.
I've actually spent all day today trying to figure out the right solution. Kids, no kids. Cousins, no cousins. Small wedding, bigger wedding. And after hours of tossing and turning and wasting several very nice trees worth of paper on listing making, I've made up my mind.
1. No kids.
2. Honorary cousins. [We've both chosen a cousin closest to us to invite to the formal reception, then all cousins and their wives will be invited to our casual reception.]
3. Slightly smaller than the bigger wedding.
That's it, my mind's made up. There's no turning back, now.
