HELP!! My soon to be husband want to invite everyone to our wedding!!!

I really need some great advice on the guest list!!! My other half wants to invite close to 300 of his family and friends to our wedding. Let me remind you all that it does not include my side of the family. Our guest list is suppose to be a maximum of 350 due to the both of us coming from large families. He really wants to invite the "outspoken, rude and quick to fight" ones from Georgia and New York ( No offense to anyone from these areas). This will be my first encounter with these set of folks. Any suggestions on how to deal with this situation?

 You both have to sit down and go over this list. 30-50% of the people you invite wont rsvp or come to the wedding. Its really important especially if you have to pay per person.

It is SO HARD to reign yourself in when you want to shout it to the world you are getting married, right? I think if you address is from a "we" standpoint, it won't cause as many hurt feelings. Together try to come up with some you can cut, and point out (even if it's not entirely true...) that you want everyone to be there, but you both need to keep in mind limits for inviting guests. <3 good luck!

You each should get 150 or so people to invite and that way you both have the same amount. Sit down and discuss things like "are 2nd cousins invited" "Should we invite kids" and things like that. Good luck!

Y'all should sit down and discuss the guest list together and find a spot to meet in the middle... that way y'all both have the same amount of people invited.

I agree on what's said thus far, but if said ppl are known to be rude and rowdy, then express how you feel about it. No one wants to be embarrassed. Also, if both of you came up w/ a number, try to stick w/ it. Not sure where you're from or having your wedding but the ++(service fee and tax) adds up tremendously.

 

Oh, no offense taken...lol.

Thanks ladies for the great advice given. I will sit down with the hubby and evaluate who is worth it and who we can do without.
