- Wedding: May 2014
We sent out save the dates mid summer for our wedding next spring (my above date is correct). I’m kicking myself now and wishing we hadn’t sent them to all the people we did (not because I want to uninvite but because it let the cat out of the bag)…
Christmas day, FH and I will go to my Stepmothers (SM) family’s house (her Aunt) for dinner. I’m not sure how much of her family will be there, but it’s a good few usually. We had to draw a line when it came to inviting SM’s family to the wedding as we’re trying to keep it small and she has a lot of family.
We have invited her aunt (who’s house we’ll be at) and her parents, that’s it. They got STD’s. Her aunt put the STD on the bulliten board when she got it, we were there for the August long weekend and I didn’t notice it until another family member (who isn’t invited) said something about seeing it. We dodged questions and mentioned keeping it small but by now they’ve likely figured out they’re not invited.
So when we see these people at Christmas, people I genuinely like and wish we could have invited, what do we do? I’m hoping they won’t ask, but if they do, what do we say? I dont’ want to talk wedding in front of people who aren’t invited and I don’t want to try and make excuses….
