Give you and your Fiance power to decide on the top 100, then give each set of parents 50 people that must be invited which can be friends or family.  Tell them the venue will not accommodate any more than that.  I would also have them set up a ranked B list of people they would like to invite if there is room after the RSVPs come back.

If his parents are not paying for the wedding they do not get final say in who is invited.  Period.  You can invite some of their family out of courtesy, but ultimately it is up to you and your Fiance who is invited.  My only suggestion is maybe keep the rules uniform across the board so that no one can get offended.  Example: If you are deciding not to invite kids under 16, then kids under 16 on your side of the family shouldn’t be allowed either.  We are making the rule that no one that doesn’t know us as a couple isn’t invited.  That includes extended family.
