I can’t relate, but from reading a few posts here on WB it seems like not everyone invited can attend. So, maybe after you start getting your rsvps back, you can invite more people that your mother wanted. Hope that helps a little.

We are paying for the wedding ourselves, and although I would love to invite everyone, we’re only inviting close family/friends. Not people we haven’t seen/talked to in 5+ years, or FI’s second cousins aunty’s sisters’ brother in law… 🙂

You could always tell her that, to accomodate those people, you’d have to move to a more expensive venue. I don’t like the idea of inviting more people than you can fit and hoping for “no”s. The stress that will cause come RSVP time (right when the rest of the ‘down to the wire’ stress will be hitting) is going to be insane.

The guest list seems to be the most stressful part, even more than the budget for us =/

Yah, that would probably add more stress (waiting for “no”s)! Maybe you could mention another venue like the HeathenSwan posted. I have never received a “Save the Date” from any of the weddings I’ve been to. Its not a common thing where I am.
