My FH and I are getting married on Sept. 26, 2020 in Coastal VA, and about two/three months ago, we came to an agreement about cutting our guest list from ~100 people to ~65 total. Essentially, it would be close family & friends - mostly those coming from our local area - plus my immediate family (out-of-state) and two of my close aunts' families.
I'm having my bridal shower this weekend, which includes some people who will not be receiving a wedding invitation, which really irritated my brother (which was strange bc he rarely shares his opinions on these types of things).
Particularly with Covid-19, the intent of downsizing the guest list is to ensure social distancing, etc. at our venue and also advising those who are at high-risk should stay safe at home and watch our ceremony via live-stream (or something to that effect).
Now, I'm so confused as to whether or not I should legitimately send invitations to EVERYONE who received a "Save the Date" back in early Nov. 2019 (before Covid). Leaning on the err of caution, not everyone will be able to attend, but likely to send a gift (which is not expected, but greatly appreciated).
Ahhh! What would you do?????? Am I sounding selfish by not postponing???? I truly hope not ;-(
I appreciate hearing your feedback!
