    What the hell does “a gift minus the hotel room cost” mean? Why would she be putting the cost of a hotel room on you if she’s not going?

    Wow. You’re better off without her as a guest. Her spelling and grammar go downhill towards the end as her anger gets worse too. I’m sure others in the family will call her on it.

    Yup, that’s cray. But I also don’t understand the “gift minus the hotel room” thing. If she’s not coming, why would there be a hotel cost? What does that mean?!?!

    I took the ‘gift minus the hotel room’ meaning that she was going to give a gift either way, but if she doesnt attend at least she saves herself the cost of the room.

    She’s the only person who ever married on a beach in September so it’s understandable. Sorry, scrub that, she’s crazy.

    p.s. also crazy is that 4 out of 59 bees say it’s understandable! I’d love to hear why.

    If you were duplicating multiple aspects of her wedding, I’d understand where she was coming from. I’d be giving you serious side-eye. However, it doesn’t sound as if you are, so heck yeah…this shit is hella crazy. 

    I would probably reply with a, “What? Really? Are you serious? Am I being punk’d?”  She’d probably reply, “Yes. I’m dead serious. I’ll send a gift soon.” To which I would say, “No thank you. Your obvious love and joy has been enough.”

    But, don’t mind me. I’m apparently Captain Petty at the moment.   😉 Seriously though, your cousin has issues.

    well, since your cousin is the very first person to ever get married on a beach in september of course she is upset! I mean, that’s the most original place for a wedding during one of the quietest wedding months of the year!

    Not to slight your choice, it’s gonna be gorgeous (seriously) but seriously, she can get over herself.

    Your cousin is an twat. Tell her to spend the gift money on herself, perhaps on a doctor that can remove the stick out of her ass.

    So, playing devil’s advocate here, why press her on the status of your relationship in the context of the wedding RSVP? I felt backed into a corner just reading it.

    Granted, her explanation is absurd and she didn’t handle herself well, like, at all. But it sounds like she has deeper feelings that have little, if nothing, to do with your wedding. And while it is entirely reasonable to ask if and how you upset her, I think it should be in a conversation separate and apart from your wedding. 

    But yeah, that’s crazy.
