    Stick to your guns. Do you want to risk them starting drama on your big day?

    Look, it doesn’t matter if you were having 300 guests, all of them should be people who are happy for you and whom you want there.  With a wedding so far away, I have to ask, how does other family know they aren’t invited?

    I’d just tell others that you haven’t finalized your guest list.  I agree with luvmysailor, stick to your guns!!

    This isn’t a matter of blood being thicker than water.  They have not behaved like family, so it’s obvious that they do not want to be treated that way!

    If someone is disrespectful enough to be rude about your Fiance they shouldn’t expect to be invited. Just because someone is family, shouldn’t mean they are automatically invited. It’s your day, share it with the people you want 🙂

    It’s your wedding so you invite whomever you want in attendance that you cannot imagine the day without. If someone else doesn’t like your choice, too bad.

    I think you’re doing the right thing, and the idea that simply being family absolves them of their behavior is the reason people can get away with this.

    Of the 18 brothers and sisters my parents have combined, 4 were invited to our wedding because only 4 of them have had any positive interest in our lives while we were growing up. The rest were maicious or simply didn’t care.

    Oh, and my own grandparents were also not invited for the same reason.

    And we had a fabulous, drama-free day. So don’t worry – an aunt and some cousins is nothin’. 🙂
