I would tell them that they can invite those people when they get married. But since it isn’t their wedding, the extra people can’t come.

you can tell “Jack” that if he feels so adamant about having his whole freaking family come, then he can pay the cost for all of them to attend IN ADVANCE. If he doesn’t pay up, well then I guess he didn’t really want them there that much after all huh? What a “JACK”-ASS

I feel so bad for you and your grandma. I would be worried that refusing his demands would come back on her… but in the end you can’t do something you can’t afford to do.

Stand your ground. Hopefully he’ll cool off and forgot about it. If he asks about bouts etc on the day, just say that the florist forgot them (once the florist has left and if he doesn’t have the number) or something to try and dodge that issue. 

 

Good luck!

Honestly…why would his family even want to come. It’s not like THEIR relative is getting married. Stand your ground. Hopefully your grandma will realize that it’s your day and come to your wedding regardless of what Jack does. Don’t let him bully you.

I agree – don’t let him bully you into inviting his brothers. This guy is crazy if he thinks you’ll spend all of that money on another 12 people that you don’t even know! Jack can definitely stay home!

Wow! I’ve heard of Bridezillas, Groomzillas, but NEVER Grandma’s boyfriendzilla! Geez!!! Invite ONLY guests YOU want there. This demand is ridiculous and you have every right to say no! Good luck on this one!

Who the hell does this guy think he is? He’s not even a part of your family? It was nice of you to go out of your way to invite his one brother to make him comfortable. Tell him if he doesn’t like things your way, he can stay home and save you even more money. What an ass.

He sounds evil. Why is she with this jerk anyways? I would tell her firmly that he won’t get a bout and that you are not calling the brother. Call Jack’s bluff and make him call and be the bad guy.

Hmm… a random thought, I don’t know if anyone else suggested it because I only quickly scanned the responses… any chance he’s planning on proposing to your grandma and THAT’s why he wants his family there? Not likely, but its possible.
