- Wedding: August 2011
I’m working on my guest list and I’m wondering if i’m setting myself up for a fight. I have 2 aunts, both with grown children. One of the aunts, I’m very close to her children and the other, I’m pretty sure her children don’t know my name, they just know i’m one of my mom’s kids. I’m having a wedding on the smaller side so my FI and I said we only wanted to include people who have had a part in our relationship, meaning there won’t be anyone at our wedding that either of us don’t know (other than dates). My mom says thats impossible but I said name someone, my FI and I have been to plenty of family gatherings on both sides, we both know each other’s families. I am inviting my aunt but I’m afraid she is going to be offended if I don’t include her grown kids.
I feel like I have a good reason and can explain it to her if she asks. I don’t want to be rude but also, I’d rather not cut guests that have been close to us throughout our relationship. Is this ok?
