We are supposed to be getting married at the start of a May so are planning on the basis of 15 people in the hope we can have at least this many.
My parents separated in my late 20’s and both remarried. Because I was an adult when they separated I don’t have any real relationship with their partners, but don’t have anything against them. Given the small guests numbers I would ideally like to invite my 2 aunts (mum and dads sisters) in place of their partners.
Do you think this is a good idea as it’s what I want (I have a good relationship with my aunts) or do you think my parents and their partners would be too annoyed?
As an added issue my dad actually left my mum for his new partner, and although this was 10 years ago, this would be the first occasion they would all be together. When the guest list was 100 I didn’t mind so much but with it possibly being very intimate the thought of the awkwardness keeps me awake at night haha!
All honest opinions welcome
