My mom didn't think I was serious, when in October last year, I told her I was seriously cutting short the list of wedding guests.
She told me it was my wedding and that "we" should do what we thought best.
Though I was a little apprehensive in not inviting the few family friends still alive for the sake of the budget. I did feel more at ease now that, I had an idea of my parents take on guests that should be invited.
Then, today, my mom asked, "Who from our side are you inviting." I replied, "You, dad, and my two sister." That did it for her. She looked at me as if I told her the end of the world was coming.
Even when I explained to her that, nearly half a year ago, I had asked both of her and my father for their advice on who would be safe "not" to invite, she still couldn't believe how short the list had been cut.
Today, I caught a glimpse behind the vail of the excitement others tend complicate their lives with, concerning significant events such as weddings. How interesting this day has been. It has been a quest for guests.

Yes. And in a chapel,too.:)
I am going to have a wedding and marry a wonderful person this May 26th.
People are traveling from all over the globe. That may make it sound as if the world is attending, but really, the fire marshal wouldn't allow an over occupancy of the reception hall. Thus, I had to cut the guest list short.

Thank you very much.:)
not the number of guests but their quality
Exactly! Here, quality counts. Actually, quality always counts.
Again, we didn't want to invite too, too, many people.
For those who can't make it and weren't invited, they'll receive a free DVD of the wedding. This way, they'll be able to watch the wedding over and over to their heart's content.
