Wow! Sounds like they may be wanting you to make sacrifices to help fit the people they want there! It’s your wedding though, invite who YOU want to invite. If they ask to add more people, just tell them there isn’t enough room.

Personally I would not let my MIL add to the guest list.  It is not up to her to invite people.  Your SO knows who he wants to invite on his side and you MIL should just let it be.

Also, just because your MIL was invited to someones wedding doesn’t mean that someone has to go to your wedding.  But, what you can do is let your MIL know that for every guest that she adds then she will have to cover the cost for that person.  It shouldn’t be up to you to pay for guests to be at your wedding that you don’t know, and if your MIL didn’t invite them then they wouldn’t even be at your wedding.

It is a sticky situation that you are in though because you can either tell her to back off (nicely obviously) which will cause drama, tell her to pay which will cause drama, or suck it up and pay out of your pocket.  Either way I think this is a lose/lose/lose situation.

I wish you the best of luck
