Oh God. One of my major fears. We currently have 55 more people on the invite list than we can actually manage to pay for, and my parents keep saying, “oh, don’t worry! They won’t come!” Um, YES, they actually might!

Oh my, you’re scaring me. My fiance’s parents did this too and I believed them. If the courtesies come, that DOUBLES my estimated guest list, and what we can pay for.

that’s why i put my foot down and told my mom no! she kept saying, “so and so won’t come.” and i said, “did they tell you that?” we didn’t invite them (after a fight), and now they’re begging to come! i’m sooo glad we didn’t invite them, our guest list would have been huge!

Yep I’ve been surprised by the ones that said they are coming.  I know for sure the courtsey invites that went out to our grandparents families won’t come because they can’t drive any more and live out of town.  But the parents courtsey invites can still drive and will propbably come.  Oh well… get out the check book. LOL

Ahhhh, that is so scary. I sent out save the dates to my side THEN got MIL’s list which was longer than I expected and am now really really worried because we just won’t be able to fit them all!!

Yikes, I was avoiding it so there won’t be any courtesy invites from us to our guests.
