Lately, my fiancee and I have been getting in a lot of arguments about the guest list with my parents. They are paying a small portion of the wedding, namely the photographer, decorations, and other little things. My parents want to invite people that have no relevance to our lives right now. Aka, people we don't know. When we told them no, they called us selfish and said some people need to be invited due to politics.
We have been firm and standing our ground. Politics has no place at our wedding and we only want people we really care about to be there. Have any of you experienced this debate with your parents? How did you make a compromise?
