So I have been stressed over the fact that a few guests have assumed that they could just add guests of their own. Each additional person is $140 extra. My family has not been very supportive and I don't know if my dad will help cover the extra cost. His side of the family has been amazing and is willing to help out with the additional guest from their side in case my father won't. On my side I had a single friend who did not get a plus one assume that she is allowed a guest. There are other people confirmed to come that she will know. I am still waiting on responses, so I am just beyond stressed out about each additional person. Do I suck it up or should I say something? She doesn't even know yet who she is bringing!! Or should I just bring up that there will be other's that she will know? What if she ends up coming solo but she sent her RSVP with guest and I end up paying for that? I do want her there.. maybe I should just be patient to see how many more guests I will have over what we already contracted for, but I am weeks away from the wedding...I know $140 doesn't seem like that much, but with all the wedding stuff I have had to take off more time from work and Im still in school, and the store I got my dress from totally got me on the alterations, so I had some unexpected expenses. I am talking about $700 of unexpected expenses.
On a separate issue my mom got married last May. I am happy for her and I like her husband and his family, but I don't know them. Apparently I offended his mother (I have only met her like 3 times), because they are not invited to the wedding. My fiancé has a huge family. We invited the minimum amount of people. I didn't have the funds to invite everyone I wanted to, I feel like he has no reason to be upset that his family is not invited. I don't really know them. How do I bring this up without being mean? Oh and to top it off, he is being cheap and he keeps complaining about all the cost involved with our destination wedding. I am my mother's only child!!! This is a special day for both of us and he is really starting to piss me off. My fiancé is about ready to tell him off. How do I handle this with minimum drama? I have tried to keep my cool... Is it just all the stress from being weeks away that is making me more sensitive? Am I overreacting?
