Wow, sorry you’re dealing with this.  It’s very hard when one side of the family isn’t 100% on the same page.  My future in laws have done the same thing!  Inviting extra people, not offering to help, etc.  My family has been sooo helpful, not financially, but with advice and opinions, diy projects, etc.

I would just tell her that you can not afford to be ordering more invitations and adding extra guests to your wedding at this point….if there’s someone she feels that she must have there, then maybe she should pay for them!

Try to enjoy the rest of your planning, it’ll be worth it in the end.  At least your family is on board and you’re not alone!

my fiance has very similar parents to your fiance’s…but his mom is remarried and so is his dad–they both started new families and forgot about their previous children from their own marriage.

My fiance had to leave them behind. He realized they were toxic. He still loves them but he knows he doesn’t want to be like them. He doesn’t really care that he doesn’t have real parents anymore…

he is more interested in being with me and starting our family together so we can be the parents that he never had. If your fiance can look past that and see that he doesn’t need them anymore–it helps with moving on. Its especially important for you to be his support system since his parents are not.

At least his grandma played a big role in his life, so he does have a mother figure there.


as to your Future Mother-In-Law inviting MORE people, tell her that she needs to contribute for those people she wants to invite then.
