I think this is something your Fiance should handle with his mom.  He should stand his ground and tell her he doesnt want strangers at your wedding.

Oh no.  Can you have your Fiance talk to her and explain the problem (use actual numbers to show how it just won’t work…), and then have her privately talk to the people she invited to the shower and let them know the plans changed or something so they may not be able to go to the wedding?  It sucks, but you can’t send over 100 extra invitations for seats you just don’t have.

I’d be careful with the oblgiatory invitations and assuming they won’t come — we did that with Save-The-Date Cards for our wedding, and half of those “won’t be coming” invitations have already booked hotel rooms..

@Petite_Fraise:  Yeah, it sucks, but I think you’re being level-headed about it.  She can’t invite everyone she wants, and expect you to sacrifice having your own friends at your wedding!  I have a big family too, so I get what you mean… hopefully she can retract some invitations without too many hurt feelings.  Keep us posted with how it goes!
