That just shocked me to read that!!!! I wouldn’t invite them at all. That’s discusting!!!!!

my aunts etc all left my cousins wedding last Saturday really early and we found out they went to the casino instead. I was horrified to hear that because I have invited them to mine and now I wish I hadn’t. 

Its sooooo rude when your givin their place to them and not someone else and paying for everything.

  I think the way your daughter decided to handle the situation clearly proved she took the high road. It would be easy to have started a family drama or to have made a scene about it, but you look like the better people by accepting their request and letting them leave early, as well as attending their daughters wedding with a smile! 🙂 Hope the football game is worth it! Money Mouth

Atleast they are offering to come for part of it. My aunt is refusing to come and bring my nieces because they have a baton competition for a 10 year old. 


I would be very offended.

Whaaaaat! I would call to clarify if they’re coming/when they’re leaving. No need to pay for food they won’t be eating!

I think thats the best way to deal with it! You will have been seen by the rest of the family to accomodate their blatent rudeness and all of your guests will definately have a few choice words to say to them…. my close family would rip them a new one if someone did that to me!

If they can’t stay for dinner then call and thank them for being able to attend the ceremony. I wouldn’t save seats for them at the reception unless you have extra room.

@Aussiemum:  wow! You are one poised and polite lady, especially considering you hold the purse strings. They are rude beyond belief, and I commend you for handling their attitude with grace. Sounds like you’ll have more fun without them there!

@Pollywog:  I agree that this is the best way to go. 

This totally sounds like DH’s uncle and his two sons – they are really his only extended family we actually see on a regular basis and that I know well, but they will totally decline an invite to an important event to sit at home and watch a football game. On our wedding ay there was an early game and the wedding wasn’t till four, so it worked out, but yeah I just don’t get it at all.
