my mother and i got into it over rehearsal dinner – it was supposed to be just my family, his family and the wedding party. she invited her sisters and brothers (my aunts and uncles) i was really embarrassed since DH’s didnt invite any extended family and they were paying for it. my mom ended up calling them and telling them they couldnt come – it was a no win situation – i would have felt terrible if they showed up and DH’s family had to pay for them, but then again i felt terrible that my mother had to call and tell them no. my advice – a few more people wont hurt, if it makes your mother happy then so be it better now when inviations are being made then after they have been made ya know?

Honestly – you will be so busy socializing and entertaining you probably wont even notice they are there – and if your parents are willing to pay for food and drink for them – i dont think its alot to ask of FI’s family to print a couple extra invitations.

there were several people at my wedding that i didnt even speak too! complete embarrassment but there was just not enought time to make it to everyone. i tried!
