@mvest:    Hugs!  I can relate.  My sister is the same way and I’m not even inviting her to my wedding.  The last time I texted her (about two weeks ago) she never even replied to me.  However, she did answer my question to her to my aunt!  So, my aunt called me to tell me – I was so pissed, but this is typical behavior for her.

I’m so sorry you’re having to go through this but you’re not alone.  My best friend is my real sister, as far as I’m concerned.  She’s a much better friend to me, that’s for sure.

i can’t imagine being in this situation… i’m sorry, family is so disappointing sometimes.  i too learned the hard way that a few people are family, everyone else is just a relative.  big distinction, sadly.


if the wedding is on a saturday and they can drive up friday evening, how is the girl missing school?  or is she just making flimsy excuses?  whatever, who needs negative energy.  celebrate with your Fiance and the people who support.  everyone else can buzz off!

@mvest:  You could always passive-aggressively send her a message back by not even sending her an invitation. 

Not the best advice, but so tempting!

Maybe she thought it wasn’t so important to you that she be there given that you facebook messaged her rather than calling her to let her know the date? Some people are funny about stuff like that! The way a person does something can set the tone/expectations of an event etc.

Why not call your sister and have a chat?

@mvest:  Yeah but that is just highlights how important a phone call would have been. Awkwardness goes away with time and persistance not by avoiding! Just saying I think you guys need to talk.

Hugs, sorry you’re going through this. Unfortunately we don’t get to choose our family.
