  • Wedding: April 2015 - Family Farm

windofadream:  we arent inviting a single member of my dads side of the family. Rude, trashy people and neither of my parents want them there.  We are also not inviting a few of my FIs aunts and cousins. Again, rude people. 

 

I say don’t invite them and don’t think of it again. You have plenty on your plate.

I’m not inviting my estranged sister…she’s an asshole.  However, I haven’t had to send invites yet, so I’m not sure how this will ultimately play out. Thinking of you and your dad!

  • Wedding: September 2014

windofadream:  My mother and I have always had a very rocky relationship because she did drugs for my entire childhood and ended up going to prison when I was 14 until I was 22. She came home and we tried to have a relationship but she has continually disappointed me with her selfish behavior, problems with alcohol, and then her return to substance abuse in the form of “medical marijauana”. She has done nothing but cause drama in our family and treated my father who lost a lot because of her problems poorly. 

Recently I finally couldn’t do it anymore, and confronted her. She flew off the handle and I informed her not to bother coming to my wedding. She told me not to do anyhting I would regret, and I firmly told her I wouldn’t regret it.

Three weeks later and I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision. He presence would do nothing but stress me out on the most important and special day of my life. Sometimes I feel a little guilty, but then I remember that she made the choice to do the things she has done, and I need to protect myself and my FH and also my father and sister from her.

NOTE: I have no problems with medical marijuana, but previous drug addicts like her should not have it, and she is manipulating the system and selling it for profit, and also is an idiot when she uses it.

SO my point is… Do what is best for you and your FI. Don’t worry about doing the right thing on your wedding day. 

Also I’m sorry this is happening, I know how hard dealing with these things aroudn your weddint are.
