Honestly, I’d be relieved. If I was invited I’d feel obligated to go.

Not unless we were close, which is clearly not the case here.

I’d probably be relieved, but a little annoyed that she didn’t at least extend a courtesy invite.

A weekend of ice cream and chic flicks vs awkward time with unknown people and a chic you don’t like…yeah ice cream wins hands down.  I think @sara tiara has the right word, relieved.

You can’t have it both ways.  If I had a budget or cap of people, I woudn’t waste one on someone with whom I don’t get along.

Her FIs relationship with your husband….. has nothing to do with her relationship with you, except as invites to the wedding -which is you as a couple.  This is HER party, so she should invite whoemever she wants to celebrate with her.

It’s strange she didn’t invite the FSIL? It’s family, you should always invite family no matter what. Well at least the weekend is all HERS! LOL

I wouldn’t expect to be invited to a party like that unless I actually considered myself to be a friend of the bride.

I’d feel the same as rubybride, I think. A courtesy invite at least show she’s trying to keep the peace and not start drama, but if I didn’t like Future Sister-In-Law anyway I’d be glad not to feel obligated to go.

I’m just being honest here, but I’d probably be pissed off.

Not that I remotely wanted to go, because I don’t even like her. But I guess that to me, her not asking me to come would just confirm that she doesn’t like me either. So then I’d probably dislike her even more, in knowing that the feeling was mutual.

Hahah I’m a dirty hypocrite. Thankfully Fiance is an only child!

Probably. I would’ve wanted a courtesy “we’re going to be family soon” invite. I dunno if I would go or not, though. It’d depend on what they were doing.

I wouldn’t expect to be invited unless I was a good friend of the bride, or I was actually in the wedding.
