This is a tough situation and reminds me of Fiance and I, he used to complain if I ordered a soda in a take out order but I am unemployed now and he still thinks nothing of piling his order on top of something I get um okay? Hows that fair?  But whatever. Like I’m going to have to find a way to talk to Fiance about this you are going to have to find a way to talk to yours.

Tell him how you feel and see if maybe you guys could pitch in a little or something since they are struggling.  See if you can reach an agreement.

The thing is that you went about this wrong in my opinion. You don’t ask them to give you a list of guests they want to invite you give them the number of guests they can invite (most of the time 1/3 for each party mum & dad, inlaws, you and FI) and then ask them to provide a guest list that fits that number.

Unfortunately if the inlaws are hosting the rehersal dinner then they get to dictate the invite list. What I would do is have your Fiance talk to his parents about how it might appear to others at the dinner. That they may think that IL’s are excluding the brides family. they will probably cave.
