Having a problem with our parents adding guests which we don't know well or like how shall I tell them no... They have made a contribution to the wedding so its tricky!!
Hi Sophie we had the same problem just tell them the money is just not there, after all it is your day you should have who you want there good luck , it worked for us :)
Thank you so difficult when they say they're paying for some of it
Hi we really did have the same problem but once we told the person to butt out we haven't had more trouble :)
I would just tell them no as you dont have the money for additional people. My Mum tried to do the same but once I explained she has been better x
I would just be honest with them x
Just because they are paying doesn't give them the right to dictate the guest list, explain to them that you have a max number to stick to so there isn't enough room x
You just have to be honest, we had some people trying to say who to invite as well but at the end of the day it is your wedding!
I have this issue with brother in laws new gf but I've got to invite her so I've just made it the most uncomfortable for her
We arent at the stage of arguing about plus ones yet but are already bickering a bit about the evening list, i have said if we wouldnt want to go out for dinner with them on a normal day then they shouldnt come, if we havent seen them for 3 years then they shouldnt come and of its family that neither of us really know then they shouldnt come. Its tough as some people are going to be disappointed. We have already had to cut a group of cousins out purely because we just cant afford to cater for those numbers, not looking forward to telling them. X
