oh my goodness! and she didn’t think of this sooner huh? I guess as a bride I woulda scrutinized her list from the get go but you and your family were just trying to be accomodating. I’d see if you can russle up some extra invitees or tell people to bring a date/guest.

I’m not sure exactly what your question is, but if you signed a contact with the venue for a high minimum, then you need to make sure you meet the minimum or else you’ll be paying for people who are not coming.

It is not weird for the parents to invite colleagues, people do this all the time, but it is not required.

@jackndiane:  Wow that is tough and I would be infuriated.  If your wedding is far enough in advance, maybe you can talk to the venue about your minimum?  Or make Future Mother-In-Law pay for the difference between how many guests show up and the guaranteed minimum since you rearranged everything for her guests?

Will the venue work with you to meet the minimum if the guests list is shorter?  e.g. add some apps or a late night snack or such?
