    It sounds like you’re not close to any of those peopel and want to have an intimate wedding.  I vote pretty emphatically to hold your ground and not invite them.  If your mom wants to have a big family gathering, she can throw herself a birthday party.

    I’m sorry but if your wedding is still two years away then why are you telling anyone they are or aren’t invited.  Lots can happen in two years.  You need to hold off on inviting anyone else.  You need to just sit back and enjoy being engaged.

    You do not need to invite these people! They don’t even know your FI I bet!

    Hold your ground!

    You don’t need to invite them. Tell your mother that she is more than welcome to host a post-wedding recpetion a few weeks later. 

    We are doing a destination wedding with just immediate family and our closest friends… so about 30 people. One of the reasons we chose a small wedding was to avoid having both of our large families (90 aunts/uncles/cousins between us).
