wait- did you already approach her and tell her you didn’t want to come? Because if so, making up an excuse would be bad ettiquette (especially since she already knows). Send her a gift and a card, and be honest.

you told the bride you aren’t going to the wedding because you aren’t close to her? uhhhhhh…..

why do you need a reason to rsvp no?  you were already brutally honest with her!

i’ve got to ask – is this your cousin’s wedding?  the one where you were not asked to be a bridesmaid?  i think you should go.

You don’t need an excuse or reason.  I think it’s enough of an excuse that you have a restraining order against someone there.  Since you don’t really care, it would actually be quite rude for you to go then forcing that person out.

Just RSVP no and get on with your life. You’ve already told her why, you don’t owe her anything else.

I would not go and not send her a gift. She probably won’t even notice you aren’t there.

If you have a restraining order against someone and you both attend the other person can be arrested.

I’m pretty sure you don’t need to give an excuse!

Just say “no thank you, but best wishes.”

The restraining order should speak for itself. Then on top if that, you aren’t close!

I skipped my cousin’s wedding also. It took place 4 hours from my house, would have required at least 1 day off from work & a hotel room… Meh. I don’t feel feel close enough to her to justfiy that being bothered.
