I’m sorry this is happening 🙁

I would say that if your mom wants to invite her husband’s large family, she should agree to chip in. If she can’t/won’t, limit the number she can invite.

I agree with @missapis: Unless your mum is helping significantly with the wedding, she doesn’t get a say in the guest list…especially to people who are rude to you.

Weddings sure bring out the meanies 🙁

I would say…  Elope, and have a small mid-day reception when you get back.

I agree with @cyneswith–Either elope or have a small ceremony and celebration you can afford. Have you ever checked out apracticalwedding.com? There are lots of good ideas on that blog.

@Hannahway:  As I read this my brain was yelling ELOPE!  Do something sweet and if your on a budget maybe a local destination … like a stay-cation wedding?  You can save up and have a party at some other point.  Congrats to your dad … boooooo on his timing.
