    Yes, you're in the wrong. He (and his mother) can invite however many people they feel like. : (0 votes)
    No, she's wrong for trying to control the guest list in the first place. It's your wedding. : (4 votes)

    I had a problem similar, but lower key to this one.  My Future Mother-In-Law threw a fit because she thought I was not including certain people…when it was my FI’s decision. =|  I figured out quickly that 1) we will NEVER be able to make everyone happy and 2) including certain people in every decision was not going to work.  My Fiance and I decided that we will not mention certain wedding details to our parents to avoid these problems in the future.  He also talked to his mom and he told her that we will include her when we need her.  That’s it and so far it has worked.

    Also, and this is my opinion of course, I think the Mother-In-Law should be asked for additional people your Fiance might have forgotten and then the rest is up to you.  Just my opinion though.  Good luck!

    Can you maybe talk to her in person to sort it out? Maybe if she doesn’t hear second hand information she’ll realize what you meant. 

    That’s really crappy of her though. I can see where *someone* gets her ‘tude from now.  😛

     

    ETA: This family is also rubbing it in Bucket’s face that her family can’t really contribute financially. When the shower invites came today it only listed the Maid/Matron of Honor as the shower-giver and not any of the other 3 bridesmaids. She has also not communicated to the other bridesmaids her plans in any way. The Maid/Matron of Honor is this MIL’s daughter.
