Ugh…I feel your pain sistah Bee…  I’ve got a couple of cousins I’d rather not invite either 🙁  Thing is – in my situation, I want to invite my uncle (since he’s my mom’s bro, and they’re close) but yeesh, his offspring is a whole different story.

If you can manage to keep it a small wedding with jsut the closest of closest friends and intermediate family then you can probably “get away” with not inviting your cousins.  In my case, we’re having a relatively big wedding, so we’d probably not hear the end of it if we didn’t at least invite my cousins.  I’m crossing my fingers that they decline.

The other thing to keep in mind is – don’t invite anyone who’s just going to to go out of their way to ruin your day, no matter who they are!  but if you think they can behave themselves and be civil for one day, and if it’ll avoid any complications, than you can invite them!

Good luck!

Ugh, it sounds like you have to invite them and hope they decline.  Try to distance yourself from them so they can’t say rude things to you.

I have some family that I didn’t invite. It was pretty much if your not going to make me and my Fiance feel good on our wedding day, you are not welcome to come. I say don’t invite them.
