@Lauraine:  Cut up some cardboard boxes and tape them down(with painters tape). I was just at the filming of a TV show on location at someone’s house and that’s what they did to protect the floors and walls.

Your FI’s daughter isn’t a bad person for saying this. I too would worry about this. But, as others have said this can easily be fixed by laying down some kind of floor covering. Don’t stress!! 😀

It’s okay to be disappointed but at least you found out now when you have plenty of time to make alternate arrangements.  Even if everyone takes their shoes off, she sounds like she would still be upset and running around like a crazy person to make sure nobody is damaging her house.  Or her mom may not be comfortable with the idea and said something to her and your FI’s daughter doesn’t want to cause waves with her relationship with her mom.  If it’s not the floors, it’s that she doesn’t want guests using her bathrooms.  Who knows?

Be disappointed for a few days and then start looking for another venue.  Since you are having an intimate ceremony and reception, have you thought about looking into private function rooms at local restaurants?  That’s what I did with my first wedding and since we guaranteed 60 guests we didn’t even have to pay a room rental fee.  I would check around with places that specialize in Christmas functions for small companies.

@KoiKove:  +1 yes. This exactly. Hardwoods ain’t cheap, she’s just trying to keep her house nice, I’m sure she’s not trying to offend.
