My wedding is coming up we are expecting at least 300 guest. During the planning process his mom who is super """"traditional"""" told me I have to talk to e v e r y single guest and spend at least five minutes with them. I told her that we are paying for the wedding while I appreciate my guest being there I also want to be able to enjoy the night with my husband and actually eat my meal and enjoy the night dancing and what not. . My mother in law got pissed off that I told that and that if we had time we would try to talk to every but that we would make a big thank you at the wedding thanking all our guest for coming during dinner. Do I have to talk to every single guest? I Feel like their is not enough time to talk to every single person in our timeline or would it be wrong not to and just make a thank you speech in case we don't get to everyone.
