Major Vent Coming:
My parents are footing the entire bill for me and my fiance's wedding. When we first got engaged we asked both parents what their contributions were going to be RIGHT AWAY so we didn't get our hopes up or anything. My parents gave me a $15,000 budgeter (not including dress-yay!). Although not a huge budget, I know that is more then enough to have a nice wedding for about 200-230 people based on where we live. My fiance's parents then said they will be contributing about 2,000 dollars, which is very nice of them.
Here comes to the problem...
They are PISSED about the guest list. My parents believe that since they are contributing a huge percentage of the bill they should be able to invite a larger portion of the guests. I have to agree with them on this. But, my fiance's parents do not agree and they are being hurtful about it. My fiance is trying to be cool about it and understanding but I know that he is a little frustrated he has to cut family. I feel bad but I also see my parent's point and I don't find it necessary for my Fi's second cousins that he hasn't seen in over 10 years should be there over my parents friends that we see all the time.
IS anyone else having issues like this? Any suggestions?
