    If he truly doesn’t want them there, I wouldn’t push it.

    I’d let him make the decision. They’re his family and he might have some information you don’t know.

    My Fiance didn’t want to invite her family either, and we did anyways… well, some of them are very homophobic and we’ve gotten back some pretty rude reply cards, which has led to her feeling ostracized and like she has no family.

     

    I wouldn’t push it, if he doesn’t want to invite his family.

    I woudl suggest reading some of Mrs. Socks recaps and honesty about her groom’s family.

    If he doesn’t want them there, and they’re as bad as you sound, I wouldn’t risk it. You could end up with a wedding like Mrs. Socks’. : / Her DH’s family didn’t like her, and they sabatoged her reception. I can only imagine how much worse it would be if YOUR FH’s family showed up — they are completely out of control. (They’d probably RSVP “no” and then show up & trash the place.)

    I’d let Fiance decide who he wants to attend. Remember you have to feed these people. Do you really want them to attend and risk wrecking your special day. Remember you cant do this day twice.

    Don’t push the situation. It is his day as much as it is yours; if he doesn’t want them there, they shouldn’t be invited. Hope everything works out!
