just dont send the invite.. hopefully she will get the hint.

It is a long way off. Im a 2014 bride too– and also trying to do a guest list! its definitely difficult getting the guest list trimmed down. 

 

If she approaches you/sends another message just direct her to your fiance and let him deal with it. Truly it should not be your burden, it is his estranged sister not yours. He should explain in an honest and sincere fashion with out hurting her feelings. 

 

But for the future- never post on FB about your wedding specifics such as guest list numbers/venue etc. It usually never ends well when the world can openly form opinions about your special day.

@NurseMandie:  Two things. 

1. Talk to your Fiance about it. It’s his family so he should address it. 

2. Don’t post things on facebook about your wedding planning. 

My Fiance is Carribbean so in his culture, everybody goes to everything. We are not interested in having a large ceremony and reception nor do we want children attending the festivities. We’ve already had to tell one family member that we are not paying for her airplane ticket and hotel stay…well, he told her. (Ridiculous, right?)

But in terms of finalizing your list and also in the vane of keeping your number of attendees under control, it would be wise not to post these updates on facebook. There are A LOT of people out there who don’t know, understand, or care how much this costs you and your Fiance – financially and emotionally.

@TaurianDoll:  Agreed with 1 & 2. 

Posting wedding stuff on Facebook is literally asking people to comment on your wedding plans.

@NurseMandie:  Seven and nine kids? Are you guys mormons or something?
