DanielleI:  I never understand why brides are so bent out of shape when obviously crazy people decide not to come to the wedding.

Yeah, it sounds like this lady and her family members obviously aren’t playing with a full deck, if you know what I mean. 

There is no drama, just some odd people pulling problems put of thin air and finding offense where there simply isn’t any. If what you say is true, you made logical decisions and you’re not to blame for anything.

I know it’s frustrating, but this is most likely a blessing in disguise. You now don’t have to deal with any of these people at your wedding, and hopefully not for the rest of this whole process.

Shake your head at this odd behavior and then keep going about your business. This silly issue doesn’t even deserve your attention.

DanielleI:  I would chalk this up as a win. You’re not paying for seven bratty and socially-challenged people (who you aren’t even close to) to come eat food at your expense. Your aunt wants to upset you with her snide comments and boycott, so the best thing to do is rise above it and ignore this whole drama.

I can’t believe when people still get upset over the whole “you were in my wedding so I need to be in your wedding”.  If you aren’t close to someone then why would you want to be in their wedding?  For all the work that it (properly) entails, i would only do it for someone that im actually close to!  maybe you should have a convo with them and explain why reasoning behind it and then they will come?

Your aunt is crazy! It doesn’t matter what happened 12 years ago! If you’re not close to her then why would you put her in your wedding? I have a cousin that went through a similar situation but she just did her own thing. I couldn’t imagine not going to my niece’s wedding.

You are sooo lucky! Imagine what could happen if these people decided to attend, and then act-up at your wedding? I read a story online, where someone dressed their daughter (not in the bridal party) up as a flower girl, and then pushed her down the aisle, ahead of the bride. 

It’s incredulous that so many people think they have a vote, in the wedding plans of others. It happens all the time, though.
