jeg14:  Ugh. Some women get even more irrational about their grandchildren than they do about their children 🙂

But… did you have the same rule for other guests (i.e. no recent bfs/gfs). Because if you were inviting all bfs/gfs, you really should have tried to find out whether this second girl had a bf. However, that doesn’t excuse your aunt’s reaction. (And besides it’s not her business – if 2nd cousin had a problem she should have spoken to you herself).

p.s. I wouldn’t at all be surprised if the 2nd cousin was cool with the situation and the only one upset was the aunt.

That really sucks. Can you speak to your 2nd cousin directly about it and let her know there is no room? She might back down better than your aunt.

Personally, I would call back and let her know that I wasn’t going to allow her to bully me into inviting someone I don’t know to my wedding when I couldn’t even invite close friends and that he cannot come. I’m sorry, it was an error of emotion on my part and I should have stuck to ‘no’ from the start. He cannot come unless you want to pay an extra price-per-head for him out of your pocket.

Wouldn’t you love to say “okay, we’ll see you when you get back from dinner”.  I know you can’t but it would be awesome. I would love to call their bluff once in a while.
