So, my side of the family, who is accostumed to spanish weddings, where the cousin the aunt, the aunts cousin, and the cousins fathers uncle is invited, you get the idea….everyone is invited! Well, i’m spanish, and on a budget and i’m not inviting every tom, dick and harry.
My close cousin, who i invited with his wife, just told my mom he is bringing his wife, his daughter, his daughters boyfriend, his cousin, and other people I dont know, and dont care to have at my wedding, or pay for. Any tips how I can get the message to him? I thought the two lines on the rsvp was good enouh, but I guess he doesnt get the idea.

Tell your mom to tell them no. Or you call and tell him no.

I have similar concerns coming from an Asian family who are also used to just showing up with the family to the wedding. My Mom is in charge of explaining the situation to everyone – we are having a small wedding and our venue has a capacity limit…unfortunately we can’t even invite all of the first cousins so we can’t allow extra guests that we don’t know personally. Definitely have your Mom call your cousin and explain…good luck!

How are you doing your RSVP’s? Some online programs only allow people to RSVP for who was actually invited. Also, your mom needs to tell them no. I’ve been having a similar problem with parents inviting thier kids. We’ve just stuck to our guns and said no every time.
