Guest list question
Due to financial reasons we are trying to keep our guest list at 80 or less. We have only invited a few close friends (2 to 4) and close family. I am running into a problem. My family is not close at all with my fathers side of the family...Long story but there 8 sisters, and my dad and I think I have only seen most of them 3 times in the past 5 years (my grandma's funeral, one of the sister's funerals and a family reunion that was this past June). Each of the sisters has at least 1 child if not 2 or 3. However, I am very close to my mothers side of the family. We do everything together and seem to make a big affair out of a rather small event.
Now my quandry. I was inviting all of my mom's side of the family Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, 2nd cousins, Grandma, spouses-everyone. My dad's side I was only going to invite the Aunts & Uncles. How do I let them know this?
