My fiancé and i chose a destination wedding in order to have a small ceremony. we are very very close with his paternal side of the family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins) which is about 15 people. I'm only expecting about 10 of my own family (from both sides of my family).
The problem is that his mother has 4 siblings and each sibling has 1-3 children. We see them about once a year, or every few years, because they live about 8 hours away. Is it okay to just invite his maternal grandmother...keeping in mind we are inviting more of his paternal family?
If we invite all of his mother siblings, the invitation count goes from 46 to 60. We only wanted about 30 guests maximum.
What should we do?
