Yup, this was my situation. We decided to pay for our own wedding to have complete control over our guestlist. 

Edit: just saw your post about the family paying for your wedding. If you have your wedding abroad, it may deter some people or it may not. My coworker had their wedding in Hawaii thinking people wouldn’t come, but it turned out everyone showed up and also made a vacation out of it.

If your family is paying and your fiancé doesn’t want his extended family there then it sounds like they aren’t coming. 🤷‍♀️

Tge drama is caused by the people insisting on someone else increasing a guest list for an event they aren’t paying for, not by the people hosting the event.
