Etiquette instructions please!
Another family wedding planned at a Christian’s summer camp for kids, in October. (believe it or not, same family)!
Some of the cousins will be coming from university, and have taken whole weekend off their part time weekend jobs, due to the fact that they will be driving for 5 hrs to get there, they will meet up with us, to drive the rest of the way.
There is no food, drinks, dancing. But you can bring games to entertain yourselves, during the wedding party pictures. Then you are welcome to bring musical instruments, hotdogs, , condiments, buns etc, and marshmallows, and join them at an evening came fire. You are welcome to spend the night in female or male only cabins with your own sleeping bag. If you donstay over, there will be a brunch the next morning.
We do not know if ceremony is inside or out, we do not know how to dress! My parents, my sisters family, my family, do not want to stay over night, and there is no place to eat near by that we are aware of, this place is extremely remote! I tried calling the camp, to get more info. Left a message which they referred back to my niece, which was awkward, as she in turn, just text me saying all will be explained in the invitation, (I got the invitation info from my parents who had received theirs over a week ago).
Can I call mother of the bride or father (my brother), they can be very abrupt sometimes, or do I call the bride? We need to know how to dress, if there is anywhere that we can get a decent meal in the area. All I know is that the closest city is about 1 hr away. This situation is really put all of us family guests into a hard spot, 3-6 hr drive, for a 15 minute ceremony, we will all have to stay back for photos, because I’m sure my parents will be in them. Any suggestions on who you think I should call, and how to do this tactfully?
I almost feel like they don’t want relatives to come, and are hoping only their immediate family and friends will accept.
