Tell her to pay if she wants a big guests list. Otherwise no pay= no say

I genuinely don’t understand the audacity of some people thinking they can demand whatever and pay nothing. Weddings really bring out the asshole in everyone.

Have the wedding you can afford. Don’t let your mother buy her way in; she sounds like a pain.

I would tell her that she can stay home so that someone else can come since it’s so important to her that they be there.

I would honestly tell her that its your wedding and your budget and choice. If she wishes to have certain people attend than give her the option to pay for their plate. I had a set number yet my father wanted to invite coworkers of his (granted theyve known me since i was 10). I explained to him i was at my max for budget just with both families invited alone. He offered on his own to pay for the extras he would like and think should be there. 
Hopefully your mother can understand where you are coming from or pay herself. 
Just remember its yours and your spouses day, dont allow anyone (including your mother) to put a damper on what should be such a joyess time for you.
