- Wedding: April 2013
It’s not really that much of a controversy to me though, although it might be to my dad & grandma.
My (8 years deceased) grandfather had several siblings, so my great aunts and uncles. They lived far away, I don’t know them well, I wouldn’t recognize them in an airport, etc. My dad initially added them all except one, at my stepmom’s insistence. The one he left out had a big falling out with my grandma/dad when my grandpa passed away.
Frankly, I didn’t really want to invite any of them, but my dad is paying for a lot of the wedding.
Well, he revisited the guest list and cut most of the siblings except two who he and my grandma like more. Carol is one of them.
Well, Carol apparently got the Save the Date and sent an email to my grandma – CC’ing the other siblings who aren’t invited! She had no way of knowing they weren’t invited, but geez! She wrote something about this being a “great time for the family to reconnect.”
I’m not really worried about it, because neither my grandma or my dad are close to any of them, and I don’t really care if none of them come, so I’m leaving it for my dad and grandma to deal with. I did email my dad & grandma though pointing out the CC…
My goodness. I don’t even know these people! I should have been more firm about the remaining two not being invited either.
