Some people are just not worth your worry and effort.  She sounds like one of them.  I would just ignore her comments and focus on other things. if she comes to the shower, smile, say hello, and move on to someone who is worth your time .

Yes for both my shower AND my wedding. Seems half our guests are “obligation” guests. UGH.

@ninatheunicorn:  Could her invite “accidenlty” get lost in the mail? Wink

I wanted to elope, so in a way ALL of our invites are “obligation” invites.  Sometimes I still wish my FI was up for eloping, he wanted a “big” wedding (still only having at most 75 guests since that’s all our venue holds)

I’m doubtful I’m having a shower, but I feel like the majority of our wedding invitations are obligatory. If I had my way, it would just me FH and I, our parents, siblings and a handful of  friends, so roughly 15 people. Instead we’re at 65. 


In this situation, I would just let it go, or maybe lose her invitation in the mail. If she does come, I would just say hello and then move on to someone who wants to be there.
