    Be proactive. I would have your mother message your great uncle and say, “I’m sorry, but the guest list is limited, etc. etc. Nip this in the bud now!

    I went through the SAME thing but it was my mom adding the people. Finally I said LOOK I already sent out the invites to the people I wanted to send them to and it’s done. I don’t have room or money for the extra people.

    Yes, you need to smash that idea ASAP. If not, they will be very likely to just show up.

    I think in this situation you need to be proactive–ignoring this issue will only make it worse when Save-The-Date Cards or invitations go out. If I were your mom, I would probably delete the post and send the uncle a private message/email/phone call explaining the situation. Your explanation sounds very reasonable, you could also probably include something about the budget; that’s usually a very justifiable argument for cutting the guest list.

    I’d post on the FB page (just in case others can see) that you wish you could invite everyone but are keeping this a very small event – but that you cant wait to see everyone at the next (enter family activity here)!!!!
