Oh god – you know the mom totally told the 10 year old kid to do that right?! My sister had no kids at her wedding.  Our cousin brought her 2 daughters who were about 7 and 9 to the ceremony and then we had a babysitter for them for the reception.  However, before the ceremony started, the 7 year old went up to the groom and started asking why they weren’t invited to the reception and how it was mean of him.  NO 7 year old child knows to go up to the groom and say those things – it was soo obvious the mom had told her to go do it!  He was NOT happy to say the least!

Ugghhh – good for you for remaining respectful and cordial!! I swear weddings can really bring out the crazy in family or friends, and you are handeling the situation wonderfully. 

Also agree with the above poster; unfortunately, it appears your cousin used her daughter as means to lay a guilt trip, besides what is a 10 year old doing posting about alcohol anyway?

As a language arts teacher, I have to point out that your aunt might genuinely be afraid you are going to pick a reading that will be too difficult and that will lead her to embarrass herself. Lots of people are nervous about reading aloud in front of others, even adults. If you want to help her with this, I would pick something pretty simple for her to read (a poem in modern English, or a quotation she already knows well), or else find her some help as she practices it (like, if it’s a Bible verse with old-fashioned words in it, offer to meet up with her to read it aloud together, or make sure another family member can help her with them). 

Otherwise, they sound like they just enjoy complaining. Rest assured that there isn’t much you can do for people like that – if you fix one thing they are complaining about, they will find something else to complain about ASAP.
