- Wedding: August 2011
When we originally did the guestlist, my FILs sent us a list of 60 friends they wanted invited to the wedding. We wanted no more than 200 people total and they are not paying for the wedding, so my FI sat down with them and got the list cut down to 30 of their friends. Well my shower is this weekend and my FMIL (one of the women hosting) just sent me the guestlist so I can tell her who should sit together. Well one of the women on the guestlist is one of the women who was cut off their 60 person friend guestlist! Knowing my FMIL (she’s incredibly scatter brained) she just forgot and it wasn’t anything intentional or malicious. But now I don’t know what to do. It’s a big no-no to invite someone to the shower that’s not invited to the wedding and we’ve already sent out invitations. We just sent them last week, but we don’t really want to include this couple. First, we can’t really afford to add them (our venue is $300 per person!) and my FI specifically didn’t want them invited because the husband used to be his client and stopped using his services so he would feel awkward seeing him. What should I do?
