    Its ok den, I don't really have plans to have a 2nd family other than my current one.

    Even if I somehow manage to have one, there's a high chance of inviting those whom I'm very close to and keep in constant contact.

    A wedding's personal, why shld one make it like a huge show? I'm not an animal exhibit.

    the dinner is not yours

    go read the invitation again
    you did not invite the guests

    it is mainly for face value

    Wah koaz where got so many relatives to invite.

    Worse if u r working for a SME... Total manpower in company less than 10.....

    Lidat how to fill tables to minimum, so bobian call old friends who u too busy to keep contact with but would love to see them on ur wedding.
    i wont call friends whom i've not been in contact.
    and i wont call relatives that had been long lost.that's for sure.
    if i end up with 5 tables, so be it.at least, these are the true friends and relatives that i had been in contact with.
    it aint fair to summon people just to make numbers.
    in the first place, why throw so many tables when you know u wont make the numbers unless you summon the long lost souls?
    face value aka mien zhi wen ti?
    sometimes, i've heard crap stories of parents asking for the number of tables but comon, it's your wedding and you invite WHO u want to invite.it's NOBODY's else business.
    i know it's hard to please the folks but if it's my wedding, i'll surely do it MY way.
    period.

    dun wear a big hat if you dont have a big head.

    dun wear oversized condoms if you dont have a huge D***.

    i've planned 4 of my best friends weddings and i've seen enough 'horror' stories.
    most of the headaches are created by their own parents.

    and no, i'm not even a professional wedding planner.
    solely for the sake of friendships.

    2 of the weddings i've planned has came out in style weddings.

    I have been to a wedding dinner where both sides of the parents just sit at their table sulking instead of going around welcoming relatives... Talk of the day at the dinner loh... Focus change to parents instead of the newly wed couple...

    that is why you must be selective
    if you have those kind of friends, then i cannot help you
    choose ppl who know

    say if the table cost $80 per pax and you receive a $100 ang pao
    that would mean that they gave you $20

    so in return, you should also do the same
    or don't go and still give them at least a $20 ang pao

    IMHO,
    $20 is absurd.might as well save it.

    assuming you intend to give $100.even if you dont go, you should be giving at least $50.
    but then again, if it's some long lost souls come summoning you, then maybe i give $2.
