I think it depends on who’s paying. If its you, decide only what you want, if its Future Father-In-Law, then let your Fiance deal with it.

Are the parents aware of how much the extra people will cost, and are they willing to pay for them?  Once my parents saw the total, they were a LOT more willing to cut people.  If they’re willing to pay for them, I would say let them come – it’s not like you have to hang out with them at the reception.  It’s really easy to say hi and then go talk to your own friends and family 🙂

Your future in-laws are paying for people’s hotels?  Cutting that would be way #1 to save $$$…

I wish I had something to say and some grand advise or something to make this situation better:(

Please do not allow this to scar your wedding memories.  Perhaps you 2 could do a very private elopement ceremony before the shindig thingy.  that way you will get the intimacy you want.  But make sure not to let it slip that since so many people have taken control of your day that you felt it necessary to have your day your way (uh yea, thats sarcasm LOL) 

Seriously, I am sorry, but yes, JW will not go to the wedding, but they and their entire extended family, which is usually substantial  will Eat and Drink for Free including alcohol even though they are not suppose to (there are a few other religions that will do this as well, sorry if i’ve offend anyone)

I am so sorry that so many people feel it necessary to take it upon themselves to ignore your wishes:( 

((hugs))  blessings to you, please keep us updated as to how it is going.
