Hi ladies. I wanted to see if my fiancé and I are the only people dealing with invitation drama. Two weeks ago we sent out our save the dates and his family started calling to let us know they received them. Well last Saturday one of his cousins called and asked if she was invited to the wedding. He told her no. We have a set number and have booked a venue where our number is the maximum.Well from there it goes down hill. His Mom calls talking about how his Aunt feels funny about attending a wedding that her daugther is not invited to. And then another cousin who is one of my bridesmaids makes the same comment. He’s not even close with this cousin and he told her “How close are we when I don’t even know where you live?”. I think we should be able to invite people whom we are close with. This is his Mother’s side of the family. Did I mention he’s not evening inviting his family from his Father’s family because his Mom’s family dominates the his whole list. On top of that, they are telling him that he should take off his friends. This is where I draw the line. He’s a Iraq war vet and most of his friends that he’s inviting are military. So he does have a closer bond with most of them than his family, like this one cousin that is not invited. People are just selfish. No one is helping us pay for this so I really don’t want to hear it. Well it’s getting so bad that I just lost the flower girl, because her mother (another one of his cousin’s ) called him today to tell him to get off his high horse and how nasty he was being. So he told her if she didn’t like his decision, please don’t come. Thank god we still have 8 months, but is anyone experiencing this crap? I was thinking about sending out an email, but my MOH told me no. She said that I shouldn’t have to explain myself and plus it would probably make it worst. Any one got any advice? I hope no one is dealing with this at all. Thanks for letting me vent.
