FI and I were planning a small wedding (20 guests max). The MOB got a hold of our wedding list and freaked out. She is wanting us to add extended family to the list. This would more than double our intended guest list count. I don't know if I can afford a guest list this big, nor do I like being around big crowds. FI and I chose a weekday wedding and a location where people would have to travel to attend the wedding, in hopes that this will lower the guest count.
Any tips on how to handle this situation?
