@laceydoilies:  I know crowds give you anxiety but really what is 20 more people and especially since this is FI’s wedding too and he wants certain people there? Besides, you can’t guarantee that all 60 of those original people will show up. I think if you guys invited 80 you would have you original number met…maybe even a lower number than what you anticipate.

I know you kind of said money is an issue, but that is for you and FI to figure out. Men need to be shown data that proves that it will not work with more than 60 people. I know he should respect your wishes too, but honestly men don’t get much out of wedding, and his additional number of guests sounds VERY reasonable. I think if the both of you agree on 80 people and who to invite, it will be easier as time goes on to tell family or whoever that they cannot be invited due to space and budget.

Work out a budget first. From there, agree on who to invite then find a venue that meets your needs but is also inexpensive.
