It sounds like it’s pretty important to him. So I would talk to him more, and see if you can compromise. Can he narrow down his list a little bit?  If not, you may just have to swing it, and invite all those people. If it’s really that important to him, you should do it.  I do understand where you are coming from though, it’s hard to invite a bunch of people you have never even met before, especially when you’re paying for them to come!  Good luck!  I hope you and your FI can compromise in some way.

I ran into this exact same problem with my fiance.  I wanted a small, intimate wedding and he wanted his entire ginormous family there.  What it boiled to was that the most important part of the wedding for him was to have everyone he cared about there, and the most important part to me was having a Unitarian ceremony.  So, I sacrificed and we’re getting married in a Unitarian church with a guest list of 300.  His parents are helping us out money-wise because their family is so big, though.  I’m sure it would be a whole different story if they weren’t!

Good luck, this is a tough one, one that my fiance and I still struggle with.
