Well if you are inviting other cousins, yes you do need to invite her but be ready with someone to escort her out of the wedding if she starts behaving badly. If you aren’t inviting other cousins, you don’t have to invite her.

Rise above your anger, just because she’s a boozer who can’t keep her mouth shut is no reason for you to sink to her level of rudeness, invite her, watch her and enjoy seeing someone make a complete ass of themselves…usually seats to a show that good run over $120.

Eh, I’m an arse I guess. If someone doesn’t want to be there and they just happen to be family- not interested. Now I should say I have no relationship with my extended family- so if you’re as close as sisters you have to suck it up. Since I am the way I am with my cousins they are basically ex-highschool friends to me. Why would I waste an invite on someone who will behave like an ass and ruin the affair? Pass.

@sweetchiquita12:  I think her behavior was poor and inexcusable. Have you spoken to her about it? Maybe she realizes she messed up, but doesn’t want to bring it up. Maybe not. But I’d at least try. If she’s receptive, you can invite her and hopefully expect better behavior. If she’s still a jerk, ban her from wedding-related events.

@sweetchiquita12:  Yeah, I agree that she’s in the wrong here. But for the sake of avoiding family drama, I’d try to be the bigger person and talk to her about it calmly. If she can’t manage an explanation/apology, I’d cut her out. But maybe she can, and that would be better for everyone.

@sweetchiquita12:  You are way cooler than me. I’m not close to most of my family and if someone acted a fool I wouldn’t see again until a funeral/wedding they’d be dropped like a hot tato. You are way classier 🙂
