My fmil is excluding herself from our wedding. You can read all about it in my previous posts. You have every right to exclude any and all negativity from your wedding day and life. If they cared enough they would suck it up to make you happy. It’s your day so you do what you feel you need to do to be happy. ((huggs))

My biological family isn’t invited to mywedding. I haven’t seen them in over 10 years. It hurts when I think about it but it is for the best. Good for you for standing up for yourself.

I’m not inviting my mother to the wedding.  LONG story but it’s for the best. Don’t need the added drama or stress.

Although I invited my father, he rudely decided not to even send an RSVP card back. It was self addressed & stamped. It sure takes a lot of effort to care so little as to take your ass to the mail box after you’ve checked “no.” 

But once he didn’t come, it was totally a weight lifted off my shoulders that he wasn’t there, awkwardly sitting, causing a tornado of drama like he’s used to doing. The only regret I had there was that because he did not come, ipso facto, my grandmother who raised me did not get to come either. He has her in his care, but I delegated a few days of my honeymoon to visit her in the nursing home since he didn’t bother to make the effort to bring her. I took my reception dress with me, took pictures of me in it with her, and I’ll love them forever.
