are they paying? if they’re not paying, they have no control over the guest list.

@kellybeans14:  “Sorry, the guest list isn’t extending to cousins. It’s nothing personal, but we aren’t inviting any cousins to keep the guest list small”.

If that’s not good enough for them, then too bad. Let them get offended.

In my family there was a small wedding which excluded all cousins. Because the line was drawn evenly, no one was offended, as far as I know.

” We would love to invite more family and friends but we can’t. We want a small, intimate wedding attended by people we are close to. We are not going to lose sight of our goal. We are not going to invite anyone else.”

@kellybeans14:  PPs have given great responses.

Why would people who you have not seen in 20 years want to come anyhow?

Guest list is closed.

It is rude to disinvite your already planned guests to accomdiate two strangers.
