I’m sorry u feel this way.  Planning is so stressful bc it becomes this big affair and ppl want you to please their wants as well.  When it really should be about what you and ure Fiance want.  My mom is pressuring me to add more of her family to the list but we do not have the means to add more ppl considering we are at 90 already. i refuse to budge thou…hopefully she gets over it. Hope you figure it all out and are happy with the outcome. Best of luck.

@MrsN2Be: I’ve been there… Well I am there. Put your foot down now! I think your idea is great and you will feel a lot better after you do. It is smoothe sailing after as long as you stand your ground! Good luck!

I would definitely have a chat with the parents about your budget. If they want to go above and beyond and invite more guests than you can afford, they need to pony up the dough. It’s only fair.

I am so sorry and I am so frustrated for you! You need to tell your parents and family that you are only invited X amount of people to fit your budget and that you already gave up your dream destination wedding to make things easier on the family but you will not go into debt any more by expanding the guest list. As long as they know that the only other option is eloping (and you stick by that) htey will be ok with it hopefully.  Honestly, you do not want the wedding to pass by and look back at how you had no fun planning and then end up with a huge bill for guests you did not want.. Just stand firm, best of luck!

@MrsN2Be: I can definitely relate! FI’s family want a ton of random friends and family member that I’ve never met invited, yet they are not really contributing anything. They just spent a crapload of money on FSIL’s wedding so we kinda got the shaft. Sorry you have to go through that too…it is not fun 🙁
