- Wedding: April 2013
Hey bees, I’m in a bit of a bind. We recently sent out invites (not doing save-the-dates) and I got a call from my mother saying I didn’t send her enough. She is now asking for at least 15 more invites (30 extra people), but has offered to pay for them if any of them decide to come (FI and I are paying for the rest of the wedding).
A little backstory: I DIY’d my invites, so when I was making them, I specifically called my mother multiple times to ask her how many invites she needed and if she could please give me the addresses. This was in June. I’ve called her at least twice a week every week since then, went out to see her for two weeks, and still no addresses. Finally, about a month ago, I told her just to give me the names (I would mail her the invites and then she could give them out), she listed 3 extra friends that I had not accounted for (all the aunts/uncles/cousins were already on the list). Now she received them and wants the extras. I really want to do different invites since 1. I don’t want to make anymore pocketfold invites, and 2. my mom is going to be hosting these guests. Since these friends of hers are merely acquaintences and don’t run in the same circles, do you think it’d be ok to send out the other invites?
