    Cut it off at the godmother he really wouldn’t feel right not inviting. (Include her as the final guest).

    If you nor he feel a major pang of guilt when you think of leaving so-and-so off the list, keep them off it.

    (but just to be clear… do invite essential guests’ husbands/wives… couples can be quite offended if only one of the two are invited).

    @ranyamellon:  STOP STOP STOP! This is my biggest regret!!! We went from a immediate, family only wedding that included parents, siblings, and grandparents of 22 guests, to adding aunts and uncles for a total of 31 guests, to adding cousins for a grand total of 50 guest. Entirely too much when all I wanted to do was elope. I absolutely resent my FH for not putting his foot down when my Future Mother-In-Law kept adding people. Our official count is 36 guest + 9 neighbors who for some reason are coming but never received an invitation for a total of 45 (including to two of us). This is absolutely NOT the wedding I wanted and is no longer a compromise between what I want and what she wants. This has caused a number of fights between me and FH. Luckily for us, his parents are planning and paying for 90% of it.
