So from the get go I knew I wanted a smaller wedding compared to my FSIL and my brother's weddings where they invited over 300-350 people each. I wanted my wedding to be around 150-160 people.....in wanting that I knew I would obviously have to cut people from their wedding lists.
Well my parents have both been fine with it and my future in laws seemed to be fine with it but now they are trying to get us to invite more and more people that were at their daughters wedding this last fall. I have tried telling them that we wanted the guest list to stay down but they just keep offering money as a solution, which is not what I am worried about. They are trying to invite like 25-30 more people than I wanted.
My parents have cut people that they grew up with and still hang out with but my FMIL wants people that my FI grew up with (neighborhood friends) but I have only met these people once or twice (at FSIL's wedding) so they aren't close to them anymore.
I feel like we have a different view on weddings, I look at the people I want there to be people I'm close with in the present and most likely in the future and they want that plus people from their past. What do I do?
