Hello! I have a situation... My mother in law wants to send out invitations to 50+ relatives/family friends that she 'knows' won't be able to make it to the wedding. So basically wedding announcements before the wedding even happens. They are extremely extended family members/family friends from her side on the opposite coast that my fiance doesn't even know/hasn't seen in 20 years. I don't feel comfortable sending that many invites to people we don't know/can't afford to accommodate if they do happen to decide to make the trip (our current guest count is 100), but she is insisting that we need to announce the wedding prior to it happening or they will be highly offended. I'm not sure what to do at this point??
