Ok, I've asked this before sort of, but I want to be sure I'm not doing something wrong. Our guest list is not finalized. Right now, we have my family and friends (including aunts/uncles, no cousins invited but I do have cousins), and FI's family (all aunts/uncles, cousins).
In order to fit within our budget, FI is limited to just inviting his immediate family, and aunts/uncles/cousins but not to include children of cousins (he does have one group of young cousins, under 5, they are included in the "cousins" category). This does include +1's and SOs.
I chose not to invite my cousins simply because I'm not close with them, however I am allowing my friends and family (sister) to bring their children, if they choose.
Is this an etiquette blunder? I'm almost treating this as two different guest lists, because that's how it makes sense to me. He gets 75 guests, and I get 75, and because his family is larger than mine, He's more limited than I am.
Hopefully that sort of makes sense and is descriptive enough, but if not I can do my best to spell it out better.
