- How to convince the GF to have more than 6 people at the wedding
Its driving me insane my girlfriends (irrational in my opinion) desire to limit our wedding to just family. Im not even that close to my family. Its not going to cost us any more to have a few friends. But she is being very stubborn. I’m not talking herds of people. Its only 30ish in total. What should I do?Posted 7 years agomastiles_fanylionMember
How about compromising by saying you are fine with a small wedding but say you want a big party afterwards (same day or after the honeymoon) with friends invited…
That is kinda what we did (although we were agreed on just having family and our closest friends at the wedding, it still amounted to some 40+ people).
Then around another 100 people met us straight after the ceremony for a garden party at my wife’s parents’ house so they still had the wedding breakfast etc, just didn’t see the vows been taken (which is the boring bit anyway).Posted 7 years agofourbangerMember
Imagine a stroppy teenager/bridezilla and then think of a way of convincing her to have something she doesnt want, and let me know….
then you marry her and then you have children – you think this will moderate her 😯

thanks for all the encouragment. we are paying for the wedding as the mother in law to be started getting involved when they were paying and it was getting out of control. now just need to have the tug of war with the girlfriend.
This is all sounding like a bad idea now.Posted 7 years agoiDaveMember
As someone who was married to a control freak, may I suggest that if she gets her way over a major early issue like this…. well, you know how life will pan out for you, don’t you? Can she not see that she loses nothing by having more guests but you gain a great deal? So in effect, she will prevent you from having ‘things’ that impact you positively and actually don’t impact her negatively – just because she can.Posted 7 years agothe-muffin-manSubscriber
I suppose its easier to tell friends that the service is family only and be strict about it, than have the situation where you have some of your friends, but she has none of hers – then her friends find out your friends went to the service and then want to know why they weren’t invited!! Then X friend wants to know why Y friend went and they didn’t, then X friend falls out with your other half and friend Y – and before you know it the evening do has spiraled into a massive fight and half the guests spend the night in the police cells!
Hope that’s clear!Posted 7 years agodufresneoramaMember
