It’s definitely rude, but there’s nothing you can do about it. Count them as a no-show and move on. I wouldn’t attend their wedding either.

Wow! I don’t know if I would just laugh and write it off to crazy relatives, or let them know how rude I really think they are. First, the don’t bother RSVP-ing. Second, they basically copy your invites. Third, they actually SEND said invite WITHOUT bothering to RSVP to your wedding. Lastly, they don’t plan on attending YOUR wedding but sent you an invite to theirs? Which is only a couple of weeks or so after yours?

Is theirs spur of the moment? Seemed like that would have been all over the family gossip line if the wedding was int he planning stages for some time….very weird.

I would take the higher road and be glad I didn’t have to spend the $ on paying for them at my reception.  Send them a decent gift with the card addressed properly on the front (maybe she’ll take note).

Imho weddings make people nuts sometimes.  It brings out in some a large deal of selfishness.

It can be really hurtful when the people you think would appreciate what a special occasion it is (ie those getting married themselves or recently married) treat your wedding with so little regard, huh? I know because I’ve been feeling that all week. The happy thing though is, once you’ve got the RSVPs taken care of, you can concentrate on all your guests who are honoring you and your marriage that day.
