I need a second opinion on how to handle this mess!!
My fiancé and I are getting married end of August. We wanted to keep the wedding "small", around 150 people. All family and close friends. We did the initial arrangements and because my mom was complaining that she felt out of the loop, I stupidly gave her the go ahead to invite a few of her friends. I told her 2 tables worth (8 people per table).
Next thing you know, our wedding list went up to 250 people because my mom took it upon herself to invite ALL these people from church (that I havent seen since I went 6 years ago). Now, our ceremony venue doesnt accomodate that much people, only up to 110 seated.
My dad's been offering to pay for a tent but its not even about the space, I DONT WANT all these people at the wedding even if they "knew me when I was little girl". My fiance is getting stressed, I'm getting stressed and my mom keeps pouting and stressing us threatening not to come saying that its her daughter's wedding and she thought she it would be a happy day for her.
Is it too drastic to tell her to go through the list of guests and uninvite everyone I dont want there?
