Lol, we had this conversation with our parents as well.  We had to stand strong on this one, because our venue is not huge. Both sets of parents had a hard time dealing with the guest limitiations.  We heard lots of reasoning: “They have seen you grown up.”  “They will give a great gift.” “They asked about the wedding.” and so on and so on. 

The rule we stuck to is: If we have not shared a meal with these people in the last year (not including those out of state), then they aren’t invited. 

 

We fill that if we have not had a meal with someone in over a year, and there is not a whole state between us, then we really aren’t that close.  Maybe you could share this one with your mom.  Also, if you cut your mother’s list, it would only be fair to cut some from the in-laws list.
