- Wedding: March 2014
Bees, I am in a pickle and don’t know what to do!
Due to some nasty family drama that occurred when my grandparents died, my dad and his sister, K, no longer speak. K has basically been excommunicated from the rest of the family. K has two children, J and G. J has a criminal history and isn’t welcome at family functions any longer either.
However, cousin G has tried to stayout of this drama. While I haven’t seen him in a few years, things remain mostly cordgial between us, but he obviously still has contact with his mom K and his brother J. G and fiance are getting married this summer and texted me to get my address for wedding stuff. I answered with my address.
However now I feel very guilty that I didn’t invite G and his fiance to our wedding. my mom was afraid that K and J would find out if I invited them and would crash the wedding. G and his fiance will be seeing wedding pictures and such on Facebook once our wedding happens, so they will see they weren’t invited. They are the only cousins not invited to the wedding
Should I say anything to them about why they weren’t invited? Explain that because of the drama they didn’t get an invite? Or Keep my mouth shut? my mother says I am being too nice and should just ignore it and play dumb when they invite us to their wedding this summer… But i just feel so awkward and guilty, and what if they ask about ours?! it’s not like i can pull the “small wedding, family only” excuse…
Thanks in advance for all the advice.
