Are you still in touch with people who came to your wedding?
We had a small wedding, 40 in total. Apart from family we aren't in touch with any of our wedding guests. The best man - who was a stand in due to the orginal best man being in prison - we don't speak to anymore. H's sister we don't speak to, then it was friends who we seem to have drifted apart from.
That's quite sad isn't it?

Yes and no. There are some family members who we no longer speak to. It wasn't a big wedding anyway as it was abroad so the were about 40 guests. As there were only a few close friends of the family really as well as family we still see most fairly often. I still keep in touch with our wedding planners as well as they were so lovely.

Yes, we only invited people we are very close to though. There were 60 day guests and an extra 50 in the evening who were mostly work colleagues or extended family that we felt we didn't spend enough time with to invite to the day but couldn't not invite.
That is sad Belle but I'm sure you have good reasons to not be in touch with people. I think that's just life- friends just come and go. Maybe in years to come, we won't be in touch with all of our guests anymore either.

It is a shame. I am still in touch with the majority of my guests, there is one girl that has stopped speaking to me (god knows why) and a few couples that are no longer together. We had a biggish wedding with about 200 guests altogether.
09/01/2013 at 09:28
Mostly - there's a couple of friends MrDDs side and one on my side we don't see any more for various reasons (in fact I've just remembered I had a dream that one of them was in last night - reason we're not in touch is because she got upset when I couldn't make her hen night or wedding reception for quite valid reasons, sent me a shitting email reply to our decline of her wedding reception which I replied to apologising again and giving my reasons, and hasn't been in touch again), but generally we're still in touch with most others even if it can be a long time between contact.

Mostly we do yes, apart from the ones who have split with their partners etc.
09/01/2013 at 10:15
Some of them, yes. Some are fb friends but I have rarely seen them since we got married. Some were H's work friends so he still sees them every day! There are people who ahve split from their partners at the wedding so we obviously don't see them
09/01/2013 at 10:20
I would say 95% of them we keep in touch with.
Our wedding was not massive with 80 guests (compared to Irish standards) and for us many of the couples there are now married which is nice as many got together with their partners quite young so really thought they would have split.

There's quite a few who came to our wedding that i don't see anymore. Our photographer and his girlfriend were work colleagues, who left and now we don't see them, in fact most of the ones we dont' see anymore are work colleagues.
As for guests that came for the whole day, we still see them as they're family, and perhaps all get together once or twice a year.

I had 2 guests, apart from my 2 boys. I'm still best friends with them both.
They were both our witnesses, 1 was our photographer, and the other made my bouquet, and helped make my cake.
09/01/2013 at 11:29
Mostly yes....H's extended family have had a big bust up so you can chop 12 off the list of 86 there, and one of my friends has moved up north so don't see them as such but still in touch....otherwise we're still friendly with them all x
09/01/2013 at 11:51
Yes but we only had family at our wedding in Cyrpus, the party back in the UK which was a surprise laid on by our parents was mainly family too with a few of Rob's work friends so speak to most of them now too.
09/01/2013 at 11:54
Mostly, although I have lost contact with some ex colleagues now, and a couple of friends who moved away, but other than that we are still in regular contact with the others.
09/01/2013 at 12:12
We had a big wedding but I have a big family. We are in touch with all of the family and every one but one of hs friends that we invited during the day. There are quite a few we aren't in touch with that came to the evening reception but there were over 200 so it's inevitable really.
09/01/2013 at 12:32
Majority yes aside from a couple of work colleagues that have left work but I felt I had to invite them at the time not to cause offense but weren't really feiends anyway. A couple of friends I don't see but our lives have moved on I suppose. We have children they don't so they don't tend to bother anymore :(
09/01/2013 at 12:46
Yes, all of them, but we only had a small do in Rhodes with just 12 guests.
09/01/2013 at 13:21
Pombear was it Lindos?
09/01/2013 at 13:41
In fact, I'd say the only one I am not in contact with is my chief bridesmaid.
She culled me as soon as I had M. We saw each other at a mutual friend's wedding where she drunkenly told me that she'd "rather stick pins in her eyes that spend any time with a child or taking about them". Fair enough, I didn't ask her to be part of M's life, but I'm still me, even though I am a Mum now.
09/01/2013 at 14:25
Yes, if the odd facebook comment is classed as being in touch.
We only had 60 people to the whole thing. I don't regret it though, they were those I wanted there at the time. Distance and leaving work is what's meant we aren't in touch as much.
09/01/2013 at 14:27
I'm still quite sad that me and my bridesmaid that I was friends with from primary school have drifted completely apart. We now only really send birthday and christmas cards. She was so rubbish when I was porly that I just can't forgive her. A text to the news that I had just been told I had an ovarian tumour just doesnt cut it!! xx
