- Wedding: April 2013
FH and I planned to have a super intimate wedding of 50 – 70 of our close family and friends. We handpicked the guest list, keeping both sets of parents in mind but choosing only people who we know and love and who have been important to us as individuals or as a couple.
FH’s parents have decided to pay for the welcome/rehearsal dinner. We were not expecting them to contribute financially at all. We are still technically hosting the welcome dinner as they don’t want to.
Because she is contributing financially, am I obligated to let her choose guests to invite to the wedding? Since we are working so hard to keep the wedding intimate and the guest list small, I have reservations about asking her for guest list contributions. She will invite people neither FH and I know.
Any input would be appreciated. I am a little confused by the situation as our smallish guest list changes the dynamics a bit.
EDIT : 50-70 doesn’t seem very intimate probably, but to FH and I it is. We both come from families where everyone invites 400-600 people.
