Eight hundred people?! That’s crazy….


Well it sounds to me like your FMIL is feeling a little left out of the planning (Not that she should or should not be entitled to feel that way), but I kind of do feel like the closest females on your FI side should be invited, after all they will be your family soon too. If they feel uncomfortable coming, they won’t attend. Now I don’t think it’s fair for your future MIL to dictate any decorations, etc. but I do agree your FI side should be included (not like his third cousins aunt, twice removed or anything but if he had any sisters, close cousins, aunts, etc.)


im sorry youre going through a tough time with this, maybe you guys can compromise..

Maybe FMIL can host a shower for their side of the family. Then she can invite who she wants and have the favors and centerpieces.
