Smaller lunch reception?


New Member

I need some advice from someone. My fiance and I have planned and booked for a church solemnisation followed by a lunch reception. However, we only want our closer family members and friends to go for the lunch reception for a more intimate interaction. But our parents have been insisting that they would like their friends (whom we do not know at all) to come for the lunch reception. We were only thinking of having our parents to invite their friends to the church wedding only and we will provide light refreshments thereafter.

What are your thoughts on this or can anyone give some advice on what we should do?
