Controversy over guests at a Wedding


Donald and Melania Trump were left OFF the Royal Wedding guest list recently and this created headlines around the world. The Palace came out with a press release to state that both the UK and international politicians were not 'required' for this wedding. I tend to agree with them but it did make me think about the controversy behind wedding guest lists. I mean, why do you really need to invite second cousin Joanna or Aunty May who you haven't seen since you were a toddler, or even met at all? I remember my own (ill fated) wedding was a classic example of this. My husband was requested to invite an entire table of guests, some that he had never met. It was incredible to me that we were introducing ourselves to people at our own wedding. I don't really think there is an easy way out of this... except maybe to elope... I'll remember this for my next wedding!
