I m trying to get our Save the Dates sent out but my fiancee keeps adding the guest list, he feels he should invite his entire famliy even though he thinks most of the won’t show up. We are looking to have a final number around 140 the guest is at 186 right now. He even wants to invite the famiy memebers that never attand anything just so they don’t feel left out. I m just worried about what if they do come and also the cost of send invites to people who havent attended a family function in 15 years just so they don’t feel bad. I am I over reacting and should assume that we are going to hit our number.
Some advice is needed….

I didn’t run into this with FI, but more with the parents on both sides. My parents were SHOCKED when a few of our distant family members were going to be making it to the wedding. This was after I had several discussions with them saying ‘you know, there’s always a possibility’…my parents would respond ‘no, they would never, ever be able to make it’. All I could do is shake my head and be thankful that we didn’t have to worry about capacity. One of these ‘never gonna make it’ people also rsvp’d including several other people that were not on the list. I almos think it’s the fringe people that you get most annoyed by when dealing with all of their responses and issues.
