My cousin emailed me today asking if her mom was invited to our wedding as a part of her dad’s invite. Well my uncle is no longer married to my cousin’s mom and it’s been 10+ years since we spoke to her. Anyhow, I told her unfortunately she wasn’t invited due to budget constraints and venue constraints. Was this okay to say, or am I being mean? Thanks.

I think was was fine to say. Simple, honest, and polite. 10+ years is a lot of time and if we all invited everyone we’ve ever known to our weddings it would get crazy. I think you did the right thing. She can still send you a gift if she wants I guess, LOL.

I assume the uncle was blood and the wife married into the family? if so, its odd that she would even ask! totally okay to tell her she’s not invited.

thanks everyone. that’s what i figured, they have been divorced for 10+ years and if I did invite her then I’d probably have to invite all my aunts/uncles ex’s. Thanks again.
