Ask Liz: Your Guest List vs. Your FMIL's Guest List. GO! (Los Angeles Wedding Planner)

Aww, she’s not going to be so tough! (Photo by Ryan Price Photography)
Dear Liz,
Hi! My problem starts with the fact that my future hubs has a lot of guy friends from high school. All of the moms (including his) get together every month to catch up, which is super sweet. Apparently they also throw/host a bridal shower for each bride-to-be of their sons, which is also very kind of them. There are only 3 of these moms that I have met (their sons are the ones my fiance is closest to). There are 9 moms in total. When his mom sent me a rough draft list of their guest list, all of these moms (plus their husbands) are on there. She told me she doesn’t know the etiquette about inviting those who host showers. Neither do I. I’m not a stickler for Southern wedding etiquette, but I don’t want to be rude and just invite some moms and not all. But I don’t want to have to leave them all off because of this. Our guest list doesn’t need to exceed 100 and his side is almost 90!! This is all very frustrating.

What to do, and more importantly, how to do it? Find out what I told S.O.S., on the Broke-Ass Bride.

See you at the end of the aisle,
