- Wedding: May 2013
So I’m back.
Here’s the problem.
While I love my future in laws the wedding planning in regards to family is kinda getting all over the place.
My future mother in law does not want to be a part in planning the wedding because she thinks my taste and ideas are too big for my wallet. No big deal since I know my budget and what can be afforded.
So here’s where the confusion comes in. She thinks our guest list is too big at 115 people. It is much bigger than we’d like considering our small budget but these people are either helping with the wedding in some way or are really close to us so we can’t cut them out.
Now the FMIL has already asked for an extra invite for her friend since she was invited to their wedding. No big deal. Never met them but ok. Then we get another request for an invite for another friend that wants to go. A woman we’ve only met very briefly. Then I get an email asking for a guest list on his side to be sure no one was left out or forgotten…
See the confusion here? I’m not frustrated but if my guest list is “too large” already, what is adding more people going to do to it?
I love these people, they are great so I was surprised wedding planning of all things would be causing issues, but somehow it is.
I don’t know what to say or do. Let them keep adding people? But if I do that I’ll have to take away from my side. I keep hearing “Well to have a wedding the right way you have to spend at least $10-$15 per person” yet they keep adding people to the wedding list. I don’t know what to do and what to do if she keeps asking to invite more. Advice?
Maybe I just needed to vent I don’t know but I don’t know what to do about this situation.
