- Wedding: April 2013
I just got married a few weeks ago and had a destination wedding as well as an at home ceremony and family dinner. My cousin who has been engaged for almost 5 years has been nothing but a jealous freak to me ever since I started planning my wedding. She came to my engagement party last year and talked crap and said mean and hurtful things about me and my fiance and since then we haven’t really talked to each other. She made a huge deal about not being in my wedding even though we are not close at all anymore since getting older. I already knew she would not be able to attend my destination wedding and she made no effort to come to my family dinner at a banquet hall OR my wedding ceremony (on two different days) saying that she couldnt get time off of work but I find this super hard to believe. She hasnt even told me congratulations or anything since the wedding.
I now see on facebook that she has booked the venue for her wedding for next year. I have already told my husband that we will not be attending her wedding. I wont tell my parents that we are not going as I’m sure they will have something to say about it so I’m just going to RSVP “no” when I get the invite. I’m not a spiteful person at all but in this case I just get let go of how terrible she has treated me through my wedding planning and I dont think I can be happy for her on her big day so I would rather stay home. What would you do in my situation?
