I’d be on fire. 9 people is a LOT of extra money!! I’m sorry. 🙁

That would make me SO mad.

At this point I’d hire security and give them a list of invited guests and make everyone show ID at the door. If you aren’t on the list, you don’t get in.

That is absurd that your FI’s family is being so rude about the whole thing.

Holy Crap, I would be livid!!!  I’d be telling future grandma to fork up some major cash for their plates!!  WTF?  Who does this?  I got several “extra” people coming that I do not know…a couple here and there for certain guests….but NOT NINE!! 

Your FH needs to step up and get on this asap!!!

I’m sorry but that would be a no-go for me. Your Fiance needs to learn to be firm. HIS family is causing the issues and HE needs to be the one to very firmly tell them that it’s not happening. The fact that they obviously KNOW that what they are doing goes against what you and your Fiance wants would really send my temper through the roof. If the return address is on that letter, I would send them one right back. “Sorry, but you guys aren’t invited. Enjoy your vacation.”

Wow, that is so unbelieveable.  I cannot believe that people think it’s just okay to invite whomever to a wedding!

Do you have a return address on the letter you received?

I would sent them back a strongly worded letter that says while you appreciate their enthusiasm you simply do not have space to accommodate NINE MORE PEOPLE and you are sorry to inform them that they cannot attend your wedding.

Wow, this warrants an “oh sh*t!” 

I’m not sure how I’d handle this since I wouldn’t want to get off on the wrong foot with the in-laws.  I’d say don’t acknowledge the 9 strangers if they show up.

WTF?!

Nine extra people?

Agree with PPs that your Fiance needs to call his nutty family members and make it abundantly clear that you guys are not going to pay however much it costs to feed nine complete strangers.

@KatNYC2011:agreed!

Hire security and just “misplace” gma’s friend and granddaughter and boyfriend from the list as well. While all of this is going on. .you will be far from it! That is VERY rude! I don’t understand how guests could WANT to go to a wedding of a complete stranger either! it just doesn’t make sense!

I would tell them they have to pay for the extra people if they want them there so badly.
