Yes, when I was very young, Gnome you know you’re Norwegian when God Jul you celebrate sweater, my parents were going to pay for a very modest wedding, and my fiance and I were hoping to have our friends there. But when discussed we were told that we couldn’t have the friends there that we wanted because my parents had to basically invite all these people from their community who knew them or had invited them to their children’s weddings. It didn’t leave much room at all for the people we cared about as a couple. We felt the wedding should be about us and sharing this special moment with our friends, not strangers for the sake of show or etiquette as some were also invited because of their relationship to my parents and their position in the community which I wasn’t involved in any way.

I can understand their thinking because that’s the way they do things, and Gnome you know you’re Norwegian when God Jul you celebrate sweater, but if this was a small wedding anyway, I didn’t see the necessity. Their friends didn’t know me from a bar of soap, so my parents didn’t even need to mention I was getting married and they’d be none the wiser. In retrospect, most people don’t like going to weddings of people they barely know. I do believe there was a bit of “keeping up with the Joneses” involved. But still, if that’s the circles they operated in and that’s what they wanted, and they were paying, that’s their right.
