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

I know how you feel....kind of have the same situation as has been documented in another thread. I'm afraid to see what is going to happen when the actual invites go out!! On one hand...it's very flattering to have so many people want to come to your wedding. On the other....you only wanted close family and friends. Not to mention....this will become a huge financial burden if it gets out of hand.
Have a candid conversation with your fiance about the costs. I think that sometimes our FI's have no idea just how much an uninvited guest can cost. This is especially true since your mother is bearing the burden of the expense. Also...be firm from the start....don't waiver. When folks say that they will come but not go to the wedding or that their invited guest will simply stay with them...hold them to it and let them know that this is your intention. I would ask the FI to simply tell folks that the wedding is a small affair and that you will be sending information later on about an AHR.

***If someone wants and cares enough about us to spend all that money to come and watch us get married. Then we would find room in the budget to host them.

If someone cares and wants to spend your special day then I would def. accomodate the. I would go with the flow personally. We have 24 coming and I wish we had more. IMO.

I hope everything works out for you - the wedding crasher T-Shirt is a really great idea!

These people are wild and crazy and will be drunken messes the whole time!
I really shouldn't seal the fate of all this before it happens I just really want the atmosphere of my wedding to be fun, yet mature and these people are b****s to the wall crazy! Right now, I have five of my friends going and my FI has over 30! Ahhh!
