- Wedding: January 2018
I have a dilemma.
To give you some background info, this past January, we recieved all of our reply cards- which included a checkbox for the wedding itself (overseas) and a checkbox for our upcoming recpetion in August.
My aunt (mother’s sister) and cousin live together and I sent them an invite, with only their names on it. I received a ‘ + guest’ on the reply. My mother was very good to explain to them that we need to keep count so would appreciate that if they would like to invite someone else, than to call me direct (it was said in a very nice way). They agreed but I have not recieved any notification that this is their intention.
My cousin attended my shower, but made no mention of this. (I should probably also mention that she also helped my sister with the food preparations but- for a lack of better term- threw a hissy fit when I didn’t ‘greet her properly’ as soon as I entered the house.) So, as you can imagine, I was quite embarrased by her behaviour.
Anyways, we are sending out our set of invites for our upcoming reception, and I was wondering if there is any way to stress somehow that the invite is for my aunt and cousin only. Along with this is the fact that we also needed to make extra room for out-of-town cousins, so the list is becoming larger than we expected.
Can anyone offer any advice as to how to handle this?
