Who are these people? Family, friends, business associates?
A good rule to follow is if you haven't been out to dinner or seen this person in 6 months, you do not have to invite them. Obviously the rules are a little different for OOT family, but that might avoid having every neighbor and your graduation high school class on the list.
If his parents are stil insistent that the list grow, tell them it is $100 pp (or whatever the cost is) and ask them to pay.

I think its such a hard thing because you want everyone to have a good time and have who they want there, but on the other hand these partys cost $$$, A LOT of $$$. I just went through mine, and as bad as it sounds I took some people off and kind of made a "B list" ( i hope I dont sound too rude)
If people RSVP that they wont be there, then Ill begin to send out the B list invites. I want to keep it around 200 (praying for less), but at this rate I might have to pray harder!

Like, my parents kept it around 60, my FI and I invited 100 and his parents got about 60. His parents said that they'd pay for any people after their amount.
Luckily for me everything is working out, and that isnt an issue.

A lot of the people they want to invite are coworkers (FI and his dad work for the same company). FI does not want to invite all of them either. It's not a company picnic, it's a wedding reception, OUR wedding reception!
I told FI to TELL his mother she got no say lol she turned up and that was her involvement - he knows what she's like so agreed happily lol
