So we already had 91 invitations … which is well over what we want. We want 150 people … ended up having 185 and now tonight I lost a battle over another “list” my mother guilted me into … since 8:30 am btw … and now we have 10 or so extra people added.

Is your Mom helping you pay for all these extra guests? If not, you might want to ask for some help. Also, cross your fingers, maybe not everyone will say yes. Good luck.

Yes! My parents are throwing me the wedding. It’s just frustrating because I finalized the list with them on thursday … and she brewed all weekend and decided to drive me crazy all day. These are people I don’t even KNOW! Lol.

will the place hold them all? is that an argument?
unfortunately it’s hard to say no if they’re throwing the whole wedding. sorry.. my mum tried to add people after the invites were already printed if that makes you feel better.

At least they are paying for it so you arent paying for people you dont know yourself. Just keep in mind that at least 10-maybe 20% of people wont show up so you still have hope at 150 guests. We invited 325 (large families and work friends) and only had 220 RSVP.

What a pain, but if mom and dad are footing the bill I guess you can’t complain too much.

His family added everyone and their brother..our intimate affair has turned into over 200 people. The worst part is, not one person in his family has offered to help out. Grrrr

The venue def. holds much more than what we will have, but I wanted it to be intimate and exclusive with the people who love us and we love. Now I have … many people I’ve never heard of or have been estranged from for half my life. Actually, ours printed friday, she was supposed to weigh them today .. now I don’t know what the heck is going on.

- Wedding: January 2010 - Mr. P's GrandparentsÃ¢Â€Â™ Ranch
ohh I’m sorry!! I wish we could keep things under the 100 but only on my dreams! – I only have like 10 to 15 guest but that’s because not everyone can afford a plane ticket from Chile to California – because that Mr. Poodle has pretty much ALL of our guest – his family is HUGE though – aggg!
