- Wedding: April 2013
FI’s father passed away when he was a child and his dad’s family has been less than great about including them in family functions, calling them, sending birthday cards, etc. However, FMIL (though she re-married) feels we should add FI’s dad’s ENTIRE family to the guest list, though they “probably won’t come.” She offered to pay for them (my mother is paying for the reception) if they do. My problem is that I’m not sure I’m going to have enough extra invitations (I ended up with 6). But I’m going to try and invite them, though I’d have to have my banquet coordinator re-do our table layout in case they do RSVP yes. (We currently have a layout that would seat 101, including vendors).
Anyway, the question: FI’s cousin, whom I’ve only met twice because him and his wife live eight hours away, are pregnant. I’m not sure when they’re due, but she had a baby shower last month (I was invited, but couldn’t attend). I know that etiquette states you invite parents with newborns, especially if the mother is breast-feeding. So, I was wondering how to address the invitation to let them know they can bring their baby to our ‘no kids’ (aside from the kids in the wedding party) wedding? Like I said, she’s currently pregnant and I’m assuming that the baby will be here by April.
