I’ll try to keep this as short as possible.
Our original guest list was limited to family and friends in province only. This was to keep things small and to avoid any hurt feelings of family in the east because family from the west were also not being invited.
My parents are divorced and have been since I was 7. All family being invited is my Dads because they all live in province, minus a few in the west. My Mom’s family wasn’t originally invited because they all live in the east. My Mom has since expressed concerns that her family won’t be there and would like me to invite 2 uncles amd their wives. My Mom also has a sister and 2 other brothers she said do not need to be invited. She is not close with these siblings and do not want them there. They still talk on the phone and see each other couple times a year, but doesn’t feel it’s necessary to invite them.
I know my Mom knows her relationships with her siblings best, but I think this is the wrong move. If I invite some, I think I need to invite all. I’m afraid this may cause a riff in the family when the siblings find out some are invited and not others. I think it was hurting less feelings when all of them weren’t invited.
Should I invite all, or just listen to my Mom?? These are the siblings she really wants there so I want to invite them for her, but I’m afraid of causing family drama.
