Aw, that’s sad!  I’m sorry.  It’s definitely frustrating when they try to add a lot of people and then on their responsibility keep the costs down.  I hope it works out!

No, no, no, no, no. It’s not acceptable to leave your wedding party’s SOs off of the guest list. How rude. If it’s a budget issue, suggest that she choose a less expensive option or offer to cover the extra $$ if need be.

It’s time to have your Fiance intervene so you don’t come off as the “bad guy.” But you (as a couple) have to put your foot/feet down on this one. Good luck.

I know it’s frustrating when expectations aren’t met, but in the middle of all this it’s important to remember that our parents and Future In-Laws aren’t obligated to throw us any wedding/rehearsal dinner, etc.  If I were you and it was important to have these people at your Rehearsal Dinner, I would offer to subsidize the cost.

Oh wow, you definetly need to have your Fiance intervene on this one, it is YOUR wedding and YOUR rehearsal dinner! I don’t care if she invited the President, the Pope or Elvis, your wedding = your guests when it comes down to the nitty gritty in the amount of people.  She needs to be reined in. I can’t believe the gull she has to laugh in your face like that!
