The wedding is this weekend and you JUST found out? And not even from the bride or groom? You so don’t have to go. Is your grandma offering to pay for your ticket? If not just tell her (the only one that seems to care) that you literally have no way to get there/cannot afford to go, especially since its last minute.

Don’t go. And the answer to anyone who questions you? You weren’t invited.

Invites do not come from other people, they come from the bride and groom. This works in your favor here. You going would be like someone adding an uninvited guest on their RSVP (which we all know is bad and wrong)!

If that somehow gets you an official invite, still don’t go. Politely decline and don’t give a reason. You don’t owe anyone a reason for declining an invitation, and your reasons for not going are legitimate.

So. Don’t go. However, through the grapevine and to keep family peace, I might send a card with either a gift or a giftcard to a store near where they live. There are discount ones that you can get for 50% off face vallue near major metro areas. Even to a decent restaurant. Make it about the two of them.

And you aren’t knocking yourself out trying to get them to approve of you and your not spending a fortune.
