- Wedding: June 2014 - On a boat, touring the City Harbour and surrounding island area.
Looking for some non-family opinions here! My Fiancé and I are sending out Save The Date cards early as many of our guests have to make travel arrangements.
My Fiancé has 4 Cousins. 1 that will not be invited because he does not associate with the family anymore. This leaves 3 Cousins. Here’s the breakdown (names changed):
Joe: His Uncle’s son from his Mom’s side. They have no relationship outside of family events and even then they rarely talk. However, his mom says he “has” to be invited.
Sally: Joe’s sister. His Uncle’s other kid. My Fiance hasn’t seen her since a recent funeral. They spoke. I spoke to her. I don’t feel she should be invite because we probably wouldn’t see her again unless there’s another funeral. Do we have to invite her because we’re inviting her brother?
Bob: His other Uncle’s Son. Was at the recent funeral as well. Talked a bit, not much. No relationship. However, his Uncle (bob’s dad) is invited. Does this mean we have to invite him too? He doesn’t live with his dad.
I have 4 cousins on my side of the family as well. One isn’t being invited because he doesn’t associate with the family anymore either. The other 3 are being invite because I am close with all of them. So is my Fiancé.
My Fiancé and I are paying for about 70% of the wedding. My parents are paying the other 20%. My Fiancés parents have offered zero money whatsoever.
So, which Cousins from my Fiancé’s side do we have to invite?
