This is a tough situation. i take it that no matter how many or how few people are invited, the money your parents are providing is a set amount? Are his parents or yourselves contributing at all? Also, you can have a nice wedding with nice things on a tiny budget! I spent months and months getting quotes, but I finally found 2 (!!) caterers who could work with our small budget and both offer nice, real table clothes. You can get silverware cheap from Sam’s club (36 knives or forks or spoons per package for $5-$8, way cheaper then from rental places!), and if you go with a picnic/farm/outdoor party theme, you could just rent plates for dinner and use nice (ecoware comes to mind) paper/corn plates for dessert. Also, many cities, counties, states, etc. rent out very nice pavilions and buildings, often in beautiful places, for super cheap. You Could throw a huge wedding, but it will take work, but maybe not as much as you fear?

I guess it comes down to you needing to decide what is more important to you: inviting all of your family and not offending anyone OR a wedding where you won’t have to do much other then show up. Its hard, I know!, but talk to your Fiance about it. Keep talking about it until you make your decision.
