@audrey_lane:  Everyone seems so super sensitive in this family and gets immediately defensive over seemingly innocent questions! Do you have any insight as to why this would be the case if everything was rosy before?  I know you were helping your mum and bro out by asking these people questions re: seating and gifts but it’s really been thrown back in your face. I’d steer clear of doing that again in the future and let them handle their own mess.


I probs wouldn’t have pushed the gift issue but I can totally understand why it would seem very odd that she wouldn’t give one. You still have a bit of time to go before your wedding – are there any Christmas events you will be seeing these people at to try and get a sense of what went wrong and what needs mending?

@audrey_lane: You’ve already apologized and they are just being nasty for no reason at this point. I would just leave it alone and hope the drama dies down…  it doesn’t sound like your brother is close to the aunt since he was so easily willing to cut her off, and clearly they were not very fond of your family to begin with (as per all the negative comments) and now they have another reason to complain – lay low, and they will just look petty if they keep bringing it up months later.

They sound like assholes. Sorry. I’m a firm believer that blood means nothing if you treat family like crap. It was all clearly innocent mistakes that in no way should have set them off like that. geeeez Louise, they need hobbies other than talking behind your back.
