A little bit of backstory:
My cousin’s parents divorced when we were very young and I never really knew his mother. His father eventually re-married and has a daughter with wife #2. Wife #1 and wife #2 are not friendly (mostly because wife #1 is crazy). I do not consider wife #1 family, since I didn’t know her until about 2 years ago. She is not someone I had intended to invite to our wedding and only talk when I go to pick up my cousin.
When I sent out my invitations, I "& guested" my cousin, thinking he would like to bring a date. Well, it turns out that wife #1 is going to our wedding as my cousin’s guest. Normally, I wouldn’t care, but I don’t want to make wife #2 uncomfortable since she is my guest. Is it ok to maybe "suggest" that he brings a date or should I stay out of the whole situation?

I said no because I feel that by allowing someone to bring a guest, it should be their choice who they bring. Are you doing a seating chart? I would put them at separate tables. And maybe you or another family member can give your aunt and uncle a heads up so there are no surprises when they run into her at the wedding.

I completely agree with Tessabella. At this point, asking your cousin to bring someone else is just going to make more drama… just warn your aunt & uncle.

Ha ha Eloping! Seriously. . . He’s single and ready to mingle (and bringing his mom).
I was planning on staying out of it, but I wanted to make sure that I shouldn’t say anything.
