parents' friends will more likely than not be parents themselves. Why would can elderly person attend a wedding they weren't invited to?

zinfly:

i am really considering moving the whole thing from Nigeria. it will be cheaper. classy and memorable. i have really tried to be reasonable here. i eliminated ashebi cos i don't want that fuss. i have asked no one to contribute and i dont mind if you dont bring me a gift. both i and my fiance are fully responsible for our wedding. We just want a happy day less of moaning guest. the problem also is that Nigerians are not demure in their comment. i have seen people work their Bottom off to do wedding only for people to say the wedding was rubbish, there wasn't enough drinks and food. i was brought up to understand that you attend a wedding to show your support to the couple -food or no food. why do i have to waste my time and effort to please people i don't know. i think the more i read this comment, i become more adamant so that i will either move the whole thing or get heavily armed me. After the wedding i will pack my bags and go. its just cos my inlaws are too frail to attend abroad if not there will be no question about this ***Sigh***

mmm... a bride with so much 'ordering everybody around because its her wedding'. You sound like you are the one wedding ('funding')your fiance. you are even talking about moving the wedding abroad. let me guess- the guy has no say who comes and where it holds. so much het-up over your wedding already, is an harbinger for distastrous marriage. If the opinion of others and members of your family don't count, then I guess you need to do a lot of rethinking about marrying in the first place. I assume your fiance is a gentleman who doesn't like much trouble, but let me give you a simple advise... if his people are thrown out of his wedding, then be sure you have started on a wrong footing. You will definitely forget to invite some very important personel in your life or family. Its offensive enough to forget to invite a relative, bouncing them, when they decide to show up after all, will be Sacrilegious.

My dear, all it will cost you to have more people in your wedding is just more money. Its not worth throwing away your happy married life and relationships because of something that flimpsy. Trust me, you will not even notice they are there.

I do wish you all the best and hope its stands as the happiest day of your life and not the other way round. Please be wise.

LeJeun3: You said yours is an anniversary, Hers is a wedding! Plenty difference. Zinfly, one thing I learnt from Nigeria, is that such events as weddings etc are to benefit your parents. Forgive me for saying this your parents must have attended a few weddings where they weren't the hors d'ovre (special guests). So they will definately bear the brunt of whether it went well or not however if they r confy with it why not. My parents (Dad especially) doesn't go for any occasion uninvited so its easy for me to make a decision, but if my lady has been in all d ashewebi's or gone for many a weeding. . . . . . . . . Lest she becomes the most abused bribe. I don't go for weddings
This is a very good point. I remember I had to wrestle with my mum over how many people she could invite. She vex no be small when I told her lol. In the end both of us compromised. Parents also have to try and understand that their kids may have different tastes and different ideas on how to do things and it is important to allow them a long leash rather than insist their own way.

some-girl:


do parents gate crash weddings
Well lemme find a perfect way to explain it, lets say my Mum is in the Mothers Union as an active member there is no way she isn't inviting these distinguished or otherwise ladies to the wedding, so is it when some other lady's child is getting married, everyone is automatically invited. Sorry, for my errors in my previous post Didn't proof read it.

I believe parents' guests, union members etc have been included in the 300 guests.
The number can't only be made up of the OP's friends esp as she lives abroad

tpacalipse: On my wedding day, all uninvited people will be beaten to a pulp by the thugs at the door and I will make sure the venue of the reception is far to the gate. I so much hate gate crashers. Period!

stick to the guest list...whoever isn't on the list cannot enter the venue. Have ur wedding invitations printed "strictly by invitation" to avoid embarrassment
