@mmattiso:  Are you guys paying the whole thing yourselves?  If so I think you get the say in the guestlist.  I would tell her that you looked at everyones list and decided there is just no way that you can invite that many people.  I would give her a number and say something like “we are giving you X number of spots, and you can invited whoever you want that fills those spots.”

I had the same problem..You and your man are not show ponies. When my mans family gave me their guest list I was mortified. I hadn’t even met all these distant relatives. My man changed the list to immediate family only and friends…I am so much happier. This chart helped me too from an awesome person here who posted it…:)

Unless she’s putting up the cash, she has no say in the guest list. If she wants those extra people, she can pay for them.
