    That sucks. My mom keeps doing the same thing and my FI is really no help either. At least we can all sympathize together!

    I think the guest list is one of the more difficult things to deal with when planning a wedding. I had similar issues with the moms trying to add more ppl.

    I agree I think it is one of the hardest things - I had issues with my mom and my FI's dad trying to add people they didn't even like from work and their neighborhoods etc.  Well I am still dealing with it a little, the way I got my fiance to help is by saying "with all these people we are going to need to contribute X amount or delete X amount of our friends"  that freaked him out enough to talk to his dad and cut it down quite a bit :)

    Guest list is I would think the hardest thing for some. If you they are paying for the wedding I would suggest taking with them and telling them you wanted a limited amount. If you are paying, I would tell them if they want to pay for them then they can fork over the money. I've had to tell FI Best man he can't invite people we dont know. I think he got the clue when we told him he could invite his friends in replace of him

    @ Beth: your FI bestman invited ppl to your wedding? That's crazy! Lol we are all paying for the wedding but I don't think the patents even realize how much the total is at our venue. I think I'm gonna get everyone together to discuss the total and budget, that way we are all on the same page!

    I had the same problem with FI adding people after we had already sent out the STD's. I told him DO NOT talk to anyone about the wedding, because they automaticly think that if you talk to them that they are invited. People are crazy!!!!!!

    Gabby we are working on that also and I feel like it is so fustrating and alot of people are going to be mad with us.  My fiance and I both have big families and we are paying for everything ourselves so I understand what you mean.  If I was rich everyone would be invited but that is not the case.
