SO I was working on getting all the addresses for our guest list today, and told FI we needed about 36 more, pretty much all of which was his family.
So he called his grandmother to get the addresses from her side of the family that we needed, and she proceeded to add about 5 families onto our list!!
I said something to FI about not having room to add people onto our list, and he said "well nanna said we have to invite them so we do".
Ok, last I checked this was OUR wedding, not HERS so who we invite and who we don't is OUR choice!
Then, he told me she wants a print out of our list when we're done with it, to double check that we have everyone on it. NO. I will not do that.
My parents are paying for the food for the wedding, and our list is already at a large number (233 people) and they can't afford to pay for anymore people!
The thing that gets me, is the people she wants us to add aren't even people that FI knows!!! If you don't know them, what's the point in inviting them?!?!
He just doesn't get it, and he won't stand up to his grandmother, and if I do it them I'll just look like a major b*tch and then their whole family will get mad at me.
I just want him to tell her, "this is our wedding and we're going to invite who we want"
