Ugh that sucks.  I would ask for help from your family in planning since you have a lot to do and you need their help, especially since the drastic increase in the guest list.  You are paying for this wedding too and you should get a say in it also.

Oh girl, I am sorry you are feeling this way. The good news is, the fact that your guest list went from 190 to 300 people over a weekend shows that your family is indeed excited about your wedding. So much so that they’ve told over a hundred people about it already. 🙂

I am curious to know if you’ve communicated to your family how you would like your wedding to be. Do they know you would prefer an intimate setting? Do they know you are feeling overwhelmed? I am sure your parents don’t intend to overwhelm you or deviate from your vision. Maybe a sit-down conversation with them would help. It is early enough so you should have enough time to make changes to your wedding, more so for the unofficially invited guests to forget. If after the conversation with your parents nothing changes, then you will have to decide how important their financial help really is. If you choose to pay for the wedding yourself, you will have 100% control over what happens. Also, I think you would benefit in hiring a wedding coordinator to help you solidify your vision. Maybe that’s an expense your parents can help with instead.

Good luck!
