I was hoping to keep our minimum at 130 bc i went over my orig. budget on our venue. Our guest list is at 170 now. Originally future mother in law told me a bunch of people from her list arent coming- and now they are. It seriously looks like everyone on our list is going to show and i am freeeaaaking out. plus, i feel like my fiance and fmil are inviting so many of their friends now i have to exlude alot of mine 🙁 this is so stressful. sorry just had to vent. is this happening to anyone else? and on top of all this i am out of a job and we are trying to buy a house. o boy.

So you already sent the invites out or are you still working on the guest list? If you already invited people there really isn’t much you can do now but you can talk to fiance about not adding anyone else.. Before making out list we put a “max” # to stop at, and luckily we have similar size families so we just split that in half and each got to invite an equal amount of people since we both have seperate groups on friends. It doesn’t seem fair you can’t have all your friends because he went overboard. Does Fiance really understand the cost of the wedding per person? If you get him on board and understand maybe he will be more strict with who his parents invite too. Good luck!
