People keep inviting themselves!!!!! I've had it!

Also how do I make it known to people that it's not ok to just ask someone to come to their wedding? Even my bridesmaids are telling me stories of people coming up to them while they are out saying "oh ya, I think I might go down to Mexico for that wedding too." What? They're not even invited!
I'm already at 53 which is way more than I wanted and my mom just can't afford all this! Also for every extra person I have to make more programs, OOT bags, etc and that costs me money I don't have!
I wish I could afford to have all these people down there but I can't! Help!

It's kind of awesome so many people want to go, I think that you could tell your FI that you are at the limit on guests since it's a small wedding but if others are interested in making the trip that's cool just ensure he lets them know that the wedding was invitation only due to having a small group.
That's really the only thing I can come up with!!

NO I will NOT prepare! I want ppl to have fun but I also want them to remember that they are down there for a wedding and that my children and entire family will be there and I don't want them getting too out of control!
Yesterday my MOH was saying some guy she is fooling around with pretty much invites himself and she was like "he can just stay w me in my room." she is already in a room with three of my other BM's and he isn't invited!
I just want my wedding week to be calm and fun with my family and close friends. Not a free for all for anyone who wants a spring break! I'm really nervous my wedding week will be ruined cuz of crazy, wild uninvited guests!

I envy you a little.
My Family and friends yes, but most of FI's friends and family not coming, and co workers are keeping mom and not saying a thing.....akward......
But for your problem, I think you need to be firm with your FI and MOH and say that if anyone else iwants to come, they have to stay at another resort. Dont let them stay with you. OR you could move to another resort with your friends and family right after the wedding.
IS there any way, you can get the message out that they have to pay extra for something for booking so late, their reception meal or something like that, or is that too militant?

We opted out of a wedding in the states because we wanted something smaller and now it's getting out of control. I feel so bad asking my mom and dad for money because I know they just can't afford it. Originally I budgeted for a lot less people so it's frustrating to have to rework the numbers and possibly ask for more money!
I guess I just have to accept reality that lots more are coming than I wanted and make peace with it!
I am going to have a chat with my FI about cutting the guest list off. I'm scared of what will happen on NYE! I'm sure we will see lots of people out that we hardly ever run into and the guest list will probably increase by 20 after that night! LOL!

What you need to do on NYE is to wear a disguise ;-)
