Don’t let her see your guest list….period. Simply tell her “OK-since we’ve decided on X number of guests, to make it even, we will each invite X number of people. We need your list, with addresses, by X date”.

When you get her list, if it’s over your stated number of people, call her “It looks like we’ve had a mis-understanding. We each had X number of invites available, but your list has X+number. Do you want to make the cuts or do you want just want us to invite the first X number of people on your list and save the rest for the B-list?”

If she starts to argue, interrupt her with “This is number we all agreed upon,Did you want me to call and add more people? At $x/head, that will cost another $X.”

If she starts to queston anything beyond the reception (like the bridesmaid dresses) “Oh, I appreciate your input, but we have that under control. You don’t need to worry about it”.

Instruct your fiance to say “I don’t know-I’m not involved in stuff like dresses/flowers/shoes/invitations/whatever”

Since they are paying for the reception, in all fairness, they should be mentioned on the invitation.
