Do I invite the people my mother in law to be wants and make the wedding...

Do I invite the people my mother in law to be wants and make the wedding bigger than I want to keep the peace or do I stick to what we want and keep it small

The wedding is a day for you and your H2B, if a larger ceremony is not what you want, don't give in to her wants! My mother in law to be is estranged from my partner now, but at the time we were beginning to plan, she was really controlling. My partner was more than happy to go with what I wanted as it's our day. You don't want anything that's going to make you uncomfortable!

Stick with what you want. It is your day not hers. My Mum wanted me to invite a load of people I had never met until I sat her down and explained that it wasnt up to her and we wanted a small number of select people only x

I'm in a similar situation, but happy with it. My MIL is going to invite loads of relatives and I know they'll be happy to come and see us. I think it's only going to make the day better.

Hi Gemma stick to your guns my FML tried the same thing we told her no she didn't like it but had to accept it :)

I would probably compromise and say she can invite a couple of guests, but only if they are contributing towards the day

It's about what and who you want there. X

my rule is if I haven't met you and there was opportunity (as in they don't live very far away or similar) Then you aren't invited. If you are from my Mother in Law's side and I've met you but we never see you and you haven't congratulated us- then you aren't invited! xx

I'm having the same issue. I've stuck to my guns and we are only having who we want
