@candykiss:  She is hosting it for you. You cannot ask her to reallocated funds that isn’t fair. That being said, if it is too large or not what you wanted then you need to tell her to scale it down or do nto do it.

Be honest with her that you are excited but you just wanted bridal party and SO there and noone else. If she does not agree to this then you have to be prepared to say thanks but no thanks to her hosting.

FI and I are not doing a rehearsal dinner at all for this reason. It was either going to be a freak show or not happen. We do not have the funds, FMIL would not tone it down so we refused her offer to host a rehearsal dinner.
