Ahh that’s horrible!  It’s not your fault that your husband didn’t tell you!  And all the people that he invitied who couldn’t come!

*sigh* Guys just don’t get it do they?! Every time I mention etiquette related things, Fiance just looks at me glossed over an tells me he doesn’t understand why it’s such a big deal. I think it’s in their genetic code…

Mightysapphire atleast if you ever do meet them and get confronted you have the right to admit you didnt even know they existed, & thats not only your hubbs mistake. Obviously they didnt keep in touch as often?!

Oh MS! Don’t worry too much… this wasn’t your mistake! 🙂

Actually, my Fiance is no different. Trying to get a guest list out of him is like pulling teeth. Our wedding is going to be in Canada & most of his guests have never left his state in the US! If he doesn’t think they’ll make it– he doesn’t want to invite them. I’m like, no that’s not how it works… Sigh.

Hahah  – I don’t think you’re “that bride”. I don’t think you have anything to worry about either. Fiance knows about my Uncle (dad’s brother) but I haven’t seen or heard from the man in 15yrs, he’s obviously not invited to our wedding. Fiance will probably never set eyes on him.

Look at the bright side, if you didn’t even know they existed, never mind not having met them – they’re not a part of your FI’s life & odds are you might never meet them. There was no way you could’ve see this coming, it’s not your fault.

Don’t blame yourself tooo much.  I’m sure they aren’t still having hard feelings, but I might write a message to the uncle who never got invited at all, apologizing.  

I would be a little peeved/embarrassed if I were you.  Hopefully family is forgiving 🙂

OMG this sounds like my FI!  Except for me, I knew the people existed but he didn’t see why we should invite people he knew wouldn’t come.  Low and behold, we are hearing whispers that several of them are going to try and make it down from Michigan—shock(!) but I’m excited to meet them.  Men just don’t get it and it drives me nuts to explain it and still get a shrug with a response of, “Don’t worry.”  UGH!!

Sounds like Guy Logic to me. Darling Husband didn’t invite a few of his really close buddies that he was deployed with “because i know they couldn’t make it”. Even though they were in the sand box for 15 months together.
