At this point, I think its pretty much outta control. If his parents are willing to pay, you need to ask them for X amount of dollars so that your parents will not be stuck with the bill at the end

Maybe you could tell them you will have people at the door with a list of the people you invited and only those 85 will be allowed in, everyone else will be shown the door. Even if it’s not true, if they think this would happen maybe it would get them to stop inviting people on their own and tell the people they so rudely invited without your ok that they can’t come after all.

I agree with the other responses. Explain to the FIL’s that if they plan to add to the guestlist, they will need to cover those expenses. And if people show up that weren’t invited, they can be shown out.

I think I read a post on here recently where the person found that people were inviting extra people and someone suggested that they contact each individual person, explain to them the circumstances, budget reasons, room reasons, whatever, that you are only inviting X amount of people and they can’t bring extra people. I think that’s a good idea too.

It makes me so mad that people have the nerve to ask someone why they or someone else is not invited! Grr! I’m going through a similar situation and it’s like they want to make it uncomfortable for you or something.

Good luck!
