I am currently going through some guest list drama.  My venue cannot hold more than 55 people at the reception dinner.  I want to to 25 from each side of our families.  Well, Future Mother-In-Law is dead set on me inviting her two brothers and their wives.  The problem is, neither she nor Fiance have seen or spoken to these people in years.  I have definitely not met them.  Why should I invite these four people that I don’t know, and Fiance barely knows?  They all live out of state.  She has another brother whom I’ve met and I plan to invite him and his wife, but dang!  I’m not even inviting all of my aunts and uncles. I’m just going to have to end up putting my foot down with her about that, though.

i’m not inviting people we don’t currently have a relationship with, regardless of what i’m “supposed” to do.  My godfather, for example, who is also my uncle- I haven’t heard literally a word from him in ten years.  Ten years.  So just because he emails me out of the blue when I got engaged and said he’s “able to travel” doesn’t mean he’s invited.
