- Wedding: December 1969
So our venue is tiny and has a strict 100 person max capacity.
Which meant that we really had to narrow down our guest list. So we ended up inviting one of my Aunt and Uncles but NOT their children, my cousins. I only see this side of the family about 2-3 times a year on major holidays like Christmas or at big family reunions and the last time I talked to one of my cousin’s and his wife we kinda had an unpleasant argument.
But space has opened up on our guest list due to a bunch of people not being able to make it. So now we actually have space to invite more people. We’ve already invited all our really close, MUST HAVE friends and family.
My Mom says I should go ahead and now invite the cousins that I didn’t invite previously. But the thing is… I really don’t like 2 of them (or their spouses), but i do like 1. Would it be totally bizarre to invite one cousin but not his brother or sister?
I feel like that totally goes against ettiquette and might cause some family drama. BUT… those cousins I don’t like, they actually told me and my fiance that we were going to hell unless we changed churches and joined their’s. It makes me angry just thinking about it. I don’t like them at all and the idea of them being at the wedding infuriates me.
I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to NOT invite that one cousin I do like because I don’t like his siblings. But I don’t want to make things super awkward either. UGghghgh.
