    Hmmm… that’s tough.  I’m so grateful that my future MIL was so accomodating when it came to her organizing my fiance’s family guest list for me.  Who from your fiance’s side actually sent you the list?  I’m going to assume it was his mother, so does your fiance have another relative that you might able to cross-check the list with?  A grandmother, aunt, sister… maybe?

    I was almost in the exact situation with DH. His mom ignored requests for her address list for 11 months out of a 15 month engagement. And then handed over two names with misspelled addresses. Fortunately DH had a cousin get married last year and we pulled a bunch of names and addresses from their guest list. So awkward! I have a huge bear hug type family and wanted his family to be somewhat represented. At the end of the day the invitations for all of the questionable invitees (MILs cousin, MILs nieces and nephews) that DH didn’t really know, got returned! It worked out, but I now have a few more gray hairs.

    I figured that the people who know and love us found their way and anyone DH and I were funny about inviting probably shouldn’t be there anyway!
