    I think only invite extended family if you’re close to them. We aren’t inviting some  of our first cousins because we haven’t even met them. We also have huge families and we just couldn’t afford  to invite them all. If grandma  contributes to the wedding then maybe it would be Different

    It’s okay to cut your list down: some of your family will not agree with it or understand it, but when it comes down to it if you invite her cousins and their children then you have to invite other cousins and their children. The line has to be drawn somewhere, and if that’s where it is, it’s your wedding, your budget and she is just gonna have to respect it.

    You are completely right here. I don’t understand why loved ones would want a couple to start their married life in debt. I’m only inviting immediate family and first cousins. I love some of my 2nd cousins but we aren’t close and haven’t talked in years.
