Do they really not realise that the act of getting married is what constitutes their wedding?

  • When couples have a BIG guest list (150+) - how many of the guests are really significant in their lives?

    do they invite all these people because they feel it is expected by parents etc; to impress others; are they business associates; friends of parents? On the day how many of the guests do the couple actually manage to speak to personally? I am NOT knocking couples who do this; so long as it is what they themselves want fot their day.
