My daughter is getting married. Her father and I divorced many years ago, but we have remained on good terms. He is paying for approximately 60% of the wedding, I am paying for the rest.
The wedding will have 75 guests. Her father comes from a larger family, so there will be more of his family there than mine and I have absolutely no problem with that. I have remained on good terms with his family and I am in fact looking forward to seeing them. The groom's family consists of only his father and sister. Neither of whom will be bringing a date. My family consists of my father, my step mother and my stepsister. All other guests will be friends of my daughter and the groom.
Am I out of line to request that my aunt and cousin (and cousin's partner) be invited? My mother died when I was young and my aunt and cousin were my "mom" and "sister" most of my life. I am not having a plus one to the wedding (I am single, so that is fine) and neither is my stepsister. My daughter does not want me to invite my aunt & cousin as she feels it is unfair to invite people she is not close to instead of her friends.
