 I think that that note would be appropriate but then again stuff like this really grinds my gears so maybe I’m biased. Are you feeling that Christian love yet? 😉

In all seriousness I’m very sorry that your family is being so judgemental, but at the end of the day the bigger of a deal you make it the more it’s going to feel like their choices make an impact on you. Don’t give them the satisfaction. I think a polite “I’m sorry that you are missing our special day, you are of course welcome at our reception later on in the day even if you cannot make the ceremony. Please let me know if you would like any further information” note would be totally okay.

@Valdrine: It isn’t backfiring! If they wanted to make it they easily could. If you had booked your wedding on a Saturday they would have just come up with a different excuse. The day is just a convenient thing for them to blame it on, don’t let their poor decision make you feel bad!

There’s nothing you can do about this. I’m sorry that their judgement is casting a shadow on your special day. I find this type of “Christian” behavior deeply upsetting as a devout Christian myself. It’s not the point of the faith AT ALL. Love is.
