I'm 6 days out from my wedding and I'm just now discovering that family and friends have invited several people from out of town to the wedding that were never invited. One family member of FI's family asked us that, since two cousins couldn't make it, if another set of cousins could (that FI hasn't seen in over 5 years - longer than we've been together). We didn't respond. These cousins were mistakenly told to make plans by this family member back in May. We clarified they weren't invited. She said she would correct the situation. Now I'm finding out that family member never told the cousins they weren't invited so now they're coming up for the wedding. This is the same situation with another long lost uncle FI hasn't seen or spoken to in years and a few other people!
All these people are coming from out of state, and I think that's why I'm aware of them. What about those people in town/in the area who think they're invited and are just going to show up because FI's family can't stop inviting people? We have assigned table seating and only rented so many tables (we're having the wedding at my parent's ranch).
What to do? We're paying for a wedding, not financing a family and friends reunion.
