Sorry you’re stressed!  Is there something else that happened that makes you feel like they think it’s a family reunion?  Also, is it possible your great aunts and uncles can’t afford to pay for both a flight and a hotel room?

It really does seem like weddings bring out the worst in people sometimes, doesn’t it?  Ugh!  Can you talk to your dad about it?  If not, or if he won’t budge, I think you should just hold your ground and try not to worry about it too much.  It sucks because I’m sure you’re more stressed than any of them are!

Ok first you need to breathe!!!!! I would be pissed also without a doubt. Have you spoken to your father about your feelings? Is it possible to have a “firm” conversation about “your” wedding and what you want?

IMO I would talk to him tell him what I feel and continue on with whatever plans I was doing from the start. If they (certain family members) werent getting an invitation before then they wont get one now. Explain that extra people means extra cost. If you have plans on having your rehersal dinner somewhere else do it.

Im not saying to be rude but be firm and say that you cant schedule your events around everyone’s personal plans. This is how it is !!!!! 

Im sorry your going through this. Hopefully things will get better 🙂
