# 1 Venue constraints.  Let her know your top number regardless of budget.


#2 Tell her that based on her original estimate, you had only allowed for that many in the planning budget, so if she really wants additional people, you will need help financially to pull that off.

#3 You do NOT have to invite families, only the named person and their significant other.


#4 It is perfectly acceptable to invite single/widowed people on their own with adding a plus one.


#5  If you do want to include a guest for them and they are not in a relationship, and guest is sufficient.


#6  Your Future Mother-In-Law should be the one to hunt down the addresses of those she wants invited.


#7 You say your Future Mother-In-Law is sweet and that you like her.  I would simply talk to her in a calm sweet way yourself and just be honest.  If you point all these things out to her in a sweet, firm way and ask her for her suggestions on how to solve these problems, I’m sure she will be happy to work it out with you.  Remember, if things go as planned, you will be having a relationship with her for the rest of your life.  It’s a good time to work out things in an amiable way with her.  It’s her son’s wedding and she will want it to go well too.  I know you can do it!
