    What does your dad think? its his fam and if hes paying (donno) than he has a say. If youre paying and or your dad dosent care than invite who you want there.

    I think you should only invite people you want there to celebrate with you. If it were one or two people, that might be one thing, but you seem to be talking about a lot of people with whom you feel excluded and uncomfortable. I am generally of the opinion that no one is entitled to come to your wedding. They are your guests. In this situation, maybe it is appropriate to invite your mom’s side and not your dad’s. I don’t think excluding them makes you “worse” or brings you down to their level, I think it would give you a day with happiness and without the worry of being openly judged.

    Perhaps the best way to decide is to think about how they will behave if invited and consider how their presence will affect you and your fiance on the day of the wedding. So sorry you are going through this. Follow your heart and you’ll be okay! Good luck.

    I’m not so sure you will be the bigger person(and what does that really mean,anyway?) by inviting all of them, as nothing can change the past and how they made you all feel. This one event isn’t going to erase it all, and probably will do nothing to make you closer to them. Doing the ‘right’ or expected thing isn’t necessarily the best thing.

    Considering what you’ve written, there’s no way I’d invite your Dad’s side.
