I have been asking FMIL for the final guest list since June, I finally just received it last night. Our final count including wedding party is 253. I think that this is outrageous.
I don't exactly know how to handle this, I cut my guest list down to about 80 people, but his mom kept adding people to the point where they're side is over 130 people. This does not include the friends that FI and I are inviting.
We sat down last night and figured out costs and with buffet and 2 hours open bar it puts us at about $8200 but the prices may increase 2 to 3 percent for the 1st of the year.
How can I go about asking her to cut down the guest list to make this a more manageable cost. With everything else included we totalled out to about $15,000 which to me is crazy and a down payment on a house.
