In order to combat this concept with my wedding list, I created an excel spreadsheet. It had MY guests in one column and HIS guests in another column. These columns only include absolutely have to be invited people. Then I put a “Maybe” column which was only his guests that I thought were ridiculous invites. He was able to choose people off the maybe list in priority but was also able to see how many more people he was inviting than I was inviting and kindly cut off people from the maybe list that in his words were “have to have” only a month before that. Guys get caught up in it and they don’t think about how the numbers add up or how much it is going to cost. When you do the columns, also indicate the cost of including each additional person. Put a total at the bottom of your column on how much you are spending for your guests and put a column total at the end of his column. Hopefully seeing it visually will help him. I was able to cut like 20 invites off the list this way 🙂 Good Luck hunny!
