    Yuck!  I can’t imagine what that!  I feel dirty for you!  That being said, unless you’re prepared for the family backlash, I say you’re still stuck inviting them.  Totally sucks but I really can’t see how you can avoid it.. without drama.  Do you have many guests on the guestlist?  You might be able to just quickly say hi and bye and go on to other guests.  Chances are you won’t have to worry about them for long on your day.

    Tell Grandma to talk to them. She’ll take care of it 🙂 Honestly; it’s making u feel very weird; so the best thing to do is talk to them about it. I actually would have my grandma talk to them. Tell them that they’re staring and comments have made your family uncompfortable in the past and you hope they would stop and especially at the wedding. I mean c’mon; that’s pretty bad. But Mother knows best.

    From what you are stating, I don’t even know why you are even contemplating inviting them. I wouldn’t care about what other people think. They know what is going on, so they shouldn’t even have an issue with you not inviting them.

    I don’t see how you can avoid inviting them but if it were me…they would be sitting as far away from me as I could get them. My skin was crawling on your behalf =(

    @ noritake22: that’s true too. They definatly have to already know what they are doing…

    I am so sorry to hear about your shady relatives.  But, family is family and I personally believe that it you should invite them.  None of us can have a perfect guest list (sigh~).  It’s your wedding day–hopefully there will be far more positive things distracting you to let you linger too long on the sketchy behavior of your aunt and uncle.  =

    eeek… well then I guess i would probably turn to Mom or Dad to talk to them? Or I guess I don’t know. Either invite them and hope they behave or don’t invite them and then explain later…. So sorry; bad situation..
