Let me start this post by saying I generally love my soon to be mother in law - BUT she is still wanting to add people to the guest list and we only have 8 weeks to go. The some of the people she's wanting to add are family members of my fiance's step dad however when my fiance and I originally talked about these people he said not to invite them because he never goes to their family functions and hasn't seen them in 5 years. We just saw these people at a family cook out two weekends ago and now he's all for adding them. The other people are parent's of a friend of my fiance's sister. The issue is not that I don't want these people at our wedding but that we're already at capacity for the church and over capacity for the reception venue. The MIL and I originally had an agreement after the guest list was made that if she wanted to add people she had to take the same number of people off and that myself and my family would follow the same rule but she's now trying to go back on that. Please give me suggestions on how to deal with this. Thanks.
