We invited about 400 and about 100 or so came (no one really came from my list other than a handful of folks (my grandma didnt even come ) But we had a HUGE turnout at the reception cause we invited all the stores (had 4 at the time)
We had about 100 people there. Most of them were people from our church. Only my attendants, my mom, Granny, and two friends from MO were there from my side. DH had his parents, grandparents, two aunts, an uncle, and a great aunt there. Of course, I didn't count them all.
No we did not have a big wedding. We decided to spend money on traveling. We spent three months with my husband across Europe. We were in beautiful cities and interesting countries. It is good that now it is possible to book all over the Internet via air tickets, a room in a motel and even parking at the airport https://gotoairportparking.com/ . It helps to travel more conveniently. I'm glad that we did not have a big wedding, but an unforgettable adventure)
