Yikes that all sounds super stressful.  I set a deadline for my parents and my fiance’s parents to give us their complete guest lists.  All the save the dates and invites went out at once and we did not allow anyone to add people.  The only annoying part is that my FMIL’s guests have been really slow to reply, and she has no clue if a large amount of them plan to come or not.  

It’s too bad that your fiance did not step in and say no to his parents.  They clearly did not care about the stress and chaos it would cause you.

I am sure things will work out fine.  Good luck and best wishes!!

Wow he really needs to be more firm with his parents. You can just tell them “no.” The more you let things slip, the more they’ll push you

Yeah. I was a bridesmaid 10 months before my own wedding, so I knew exactly how I was going to handle it. My mom wanted to invite her cousins whom I’d never met. NOPE. My husband and I went through and picked all of our people, counted the number of spots left, and divided them evenly between our parents and that’s the number they got. The cutoff was the cutoff.

Your main problem is your fiance. He needed to stand up to his parents and just say no.
