Just make sure he knows he has only 180 people to invite, end of story, He didn’t want to give you a list before booking the venue…. Remind him that you only have 70!

  • Wedding: August 2013

@mrsnjemanze2b:  Have you given him deadlines? Or explained that certain things (STDs) need to go out soon? Do you have a budget? I would give him a breakdown of the cost per person and show him the price difference between a 150 (about even attendance from both sides) and 250 (venue max) sized person. Most men understand the need for a guest list when they realize how much it really costs to invite their 2nd cousin, and then are better able to decide if its worth the money, and if you can afford it.

I showed my fiance a table of the total expected costs for a couple of wedding dates we were debating between (sat in august vs sun in august vs sat in march vs sun in march) and that really helped him decide if we were willing to spend the extra money to get married on a saturday in august. Your Fiance probably has no idea how much other things cost (DJ, flowers, photographer, decor, invitations ect) and hasn’t factored that into the total cost of the wedding. As much as I’m sure he would love a 50k wedding, I have no idea if thats reasonable for him to expect. And he probably thinks a wedding is only a couple thousand dollars. (I have no clue what your budget is.)
