I have a Fiance that is willing to invite everyone in the universe to the wedding.  I think people feel that even if you just say hi to them on a regular basis that you are friends and that you should invite them to your wedding.  Just stick to your guns and tell them that you have a budget and you must stick to it.

I agree…just stand firm. When I get asked about the wedding I always seem vague and end with a complaint that figuring out the guest list is the hardest thing we are working on because we can’t invite everyone. Most times the person will nod in agreement and change the subject. Great way to not say anything at that moment. I think people get caught up in the excitemnet and don’t realize how much it costs.

Most important don’t stress.

I agree but we had an entire table of uninvited children show up and their parents took a table and essentially made some of my guests have to find a place to sit even though we had a seating chart. You can stand firm, but sometimes it still won’t matter. I suggest you be prepared.
