There are few months away and we are going to send out the wedding invitations. My question is should I invite my entire family even though one of my aunt & cousin has been bashing me, talking behind my back for about 4years now. My aunt even called me rude, and making up some nasty rumors. Also, her daughter which is my first cousin considered and called me the “B” word. They were also making fun if they are invited or not to my wedding and what they should wear.
But my other aunts that are good to me were telling me that I should still considered the whole entire family to invite them, so there’s no more drama. I just don’t get it why would I bother to invite them if there’s already a drama. I don’t talk and see them often anymore eversince I’ve been hearing untrue rumors from them. My fiance & I are paying for the most part, but it’s just hard dealing so much pressure from the family. It is hard having a big family since there’s always an issues.
What should I do? Should I invite them or not?

Why should you have to invite them? They sound like horrible people who don’t wish you well. If their dislike is as blatant as that then I see no need for you to invite them.
You just need to make clear that you’re not asking anyone to take sides: it’s simply that they don’t seem to like you, you’re not asking anyone else to get involved at all.
Feck it, life’s too short. Why should you have to look at their sour faces on your wedding day? Ugh. Stay strong!

While a wedding is a day of people helping you celebrate your love…why invite people that don’t care about you? These people don’t seem to wish you a happy life. It’s YOUR wedding. You should have only the best memories.

I think you & the FI should invite who you truly want to share and celebrate your day. The guests you invite should be ppl who will be genuinely happy for you. You don’t need that drama, esp on such a joyous day. If I were in your situation, I wouldn’t invite them.
Both the FI & i come from HUGE families, with LOTS of drama and troublemakers. But we are only inviting 50- 60 of our closest family members. Both our moms have given the guilt about inviting so & so, and I just am not doing it. They’ll get over it. 🙂
