- Wedding: June 2013
Here is the deal y’all:
(I am not even going into FI’s side of the family)
I invited my aunts and uncles: My mom has one brother-in-law (husband of her deceased sister) and two brothers and dad has 1 sister and 1 brother.
All of their kids are adults appart from 2 teenagers.
I didn’t invite any of their kids on my dad’s side and only one on my mom’s side (that cousin is dear to me for some reason, well he is the son of my mother’s deceased sister).
The only other cousin from my mom’s side that might be coming is her brother’s son which he is using his +1 for (his girlfriend can’t come so he is thinking of bringing his son instead)
Now my moms other brother wants to bring the 2 teenagers which originally were not included on the enveloppe.
Am I wrong to assume that because all of my cousins are adults, that I don’t necessarily have to invite all of them. I mean, since they are adults, they have their own mailing address and if I wanted to include them, I would have sent them an invite! (BTW, that one cousin I did invite lives at home with his dad so…..)
On that note, maybe I should make an exception for the teenagers?
If I do make an exception, than most of the 1st cousins on my mom’s side will be there and none of the 1st cousins on my dad’s side… Ugh.
Thoughts and advice?
FYI: We wanted to keep the guest list smaller rather than larger. Our venue capacity is 80 and the guest list is already up there, there is no way we could accomodate every 1st cousin on both sides, nor would we want to….
Fiance is worrying about his own side of the family, he made up his list and has his own reasons for who he invited and who he didn’t invite.
Are we awful for this?
Am I overthinking this or is this a big deal?
