I would sit down with your Fiance and come up with the list together. Technically only the two of you are responsible for the weding. It will also make things easier down the road since she didn’t want to give you a list, it shouldn’t be an issue about going over on numbers.

You have her son tell her 

“mom, if you dont ge us your lis by date then we are going to have to make the list for you”

Then you make the list and call who you have to call to get addresses and mail out the Save-The-Date Cards.

Can’t your Fiance at least make a basic guest list for you? He knows his side of the family (relatives and such), so he should be able to go online to Dexknows.com or whatever andlook up their addresses.

It is time for you FH to handle his mother and tell her if she doesn’t get you all the list, then they don’t get any invites besides the ones you already know.  Have him set a firm date with her and stick to it.  He really needs to handle this himself as this is his mother, the more you push, the more she will push back.  If he takes a stand on this little thing, it will mean a world of difference down the road.  Sorry you are going through this.


Welcome to the Hive and Thank you and your FH for your service!

Have your Fiance talk to his mom, otherwise let her know you need them by X date otherwise you’re just going to send your side’s Save-The-Date Cards.

I think that will light a fire under her and then you can send out his side’s Save-The-Date Cards whenever you get the list from her. Hopefully she cooperates and sends the list to you soon!
