You say that your family don’t come to your events, but then that they’ll expect to be at your wedding? If you don’t want them there, don’t invite them – have the wedding you want, not what someone else wants.

MaryMayJune:  Spread the word that you’re having a small intimate affair with just immediate family and close friends.  If you were throwing the event of the season and inviting everyone in town except your family that would make it more difficult, but as the wedding will actually be intimate they shouldn’t feel slighted.  That doesn’t mean they won’t, but they shouldn’t 😉  Anyone callous enough to become abusive to you as a result is probably someone you won’t mind severing ties with.  Be prepared for a lot of talk behind your back, but it sounds like more than a few of your cousins and such will admire you for taking a stand.  Good luck!!
