Um I never heard of that before.  I don’t even know how it could be seen as tacky, isn’t it supposed to be a nice gesture to include your family in big moments?  At least thats what I thought.  Honestly if it were me I would just let it go, if she happens to bring it up I would just say that you were excited and wanted to share your good news with all your family.

I would just ignore her. Let the rude wedding comments begin! There’s nothing tacky about telling people you love over the phone. She should be glad you bothered to even call her imo

Really?  Would she prefer it if you made a FB annoucement?  You had to call to get her kids info and to let her know.  I think your aunt is rude for telling your mom that your actions were tacky.

No you did the right thing. I called most of my family and told some of the others in person in Christmas (since I got engaged Christmas eve).


 My grandma was hurt when my cousin announced on Facebook instead of calling her still I made all my office calls first. Everyone was happy and I don’t see how that could be tacky or rude

You did nothing wrong. And since you’re receiving secondhand info on what your aunt said, and she didn’t mention it when you spoke, I’d just let it go.

Fun fact – no matter what decisions you make for your wedding, someone will find them tacky.  Personally, I think calling people was a classy and sweet move.
