Ugh, I think this happens to alot of us.  I just don’t get why some people think they can invite anyone they want to someone else’s wedding.  My in-laws tried to do the same thing.  I had to make my DH sit down with them and cut their list.  Then after we sent out the invites they gave me ANOTHER list of people to invite as we started getting back people declining the invitation.  Needless to say, I did not invite anyone from that second list.  After the wedding I found out from DH’s brother that their parents were complaning that they didn’t get to invite enough people.  Some of the people that they mentioned weren’t on either the first or the second list.  That means they wanted to invite even more people!!!

The guest list I received from Future Mother-In-Law was about 50 people. I politely explained that this was half the wedding, would prevent us from having OUR friends there, and absolutely wasn’t going to happen. After a little pouting and a lot of negotiating, the list became much more reasonable.
