if it’s only the one second cousin I don’t see why you need to invite the rest; my friend said if you don’t speak to someone in a year no need to invite

 

I’m the same, I have childhood friends, but have kept in touch with only some members of teh family and others have lost touch, I am only inviting those I see and keep in touch with

I’d invite her but let her know that you aren’t inviting a lot of extended famkly b/c you want to keep it small, but that you feel that the two of you are close and would like her to come.This way it avoids some uncomfortable sitautions.

You can always ask her to keep it on the downlow and not run around telling everyone she got an invite and who else is coming. If she knows she is the exception she’ll be tactful about that.
