My mum has begun making a list of people she would like me to invite to our wedding. I have told her who i will be inviting. She has asked me 3 times to invite a neighbor that she is still in contact with but i have nothing to do with. I have said no firmly to my mums request to the nieghbour, while conceding to my mums sister and brother and their spouses being invited.
I received an email today asking that since my aunt and uncle have declined the invite (we are getting married in Ireland in Oct 2014) could my mum ask the neighbours? Am i wrong in taking a stand and saying no to her friend? I wasnt going to ask her siblings but i did (only because they are family)
I should probably tell you that neither of my parents are helping pay for the wedding. we are having a small wedding of 50 people, FI immediate family is 20 people alone. while i understand travelling to Ireland is a large cost, should my mum have a say on who is invited and push the issue if i have given her a firm answer of NO?
