I have a few people on this list — but one person i really hope won’t come. She hasn’t RSVP’d yet, but she’s the type who might never RSVP and just show up anyway.

 

(I’m having a secular wedding and I KNOW she will have no issue standing up and trying to make everybody pray … ceremony, reception, wherever. It’s just the kind of person she is. One Christmas, she did a bible reading, which would have been fine even with my agnostic/atheist family. Except that she read from REVELATIONS about how the Devil was going to behead us. At Christmas.)

We haven’t sent out invites yet, but there is a long list of obligations we’re hoping won’t make it!

At this point there has been so much drama about our wedding Id be fine if no one showed up! LOL. Fiance family is just crazy. His sisters are so drama-ish and if they didnt show , itd be much less stressful for us all 🙁 Sad and true!

It’s a secret to everyone else but me and Fiance feel the same way: his friend’s girlfriend. She is THE most hateful person I have EVER met! Nobody in our large friend group likes her because all she does is hate. We attended a wedding where they had 2 ceremonies, one Christian with a mass and the other was an Asian ceremony. This girl was laughing through most of the ceremony when the priest read from the bible, and I was LIVID. I’m not religious but do have a religion, but it was downright unnacceptable. She was not even invited to the wedding, but they ended up there because the boyfriend (who is our friend) contacted them about HIM not being invited as well (because his Girlfriend would be there). Unfortunately, we’re in a sad situation where we have to invite her or we’re afraid my FI’s friendship with his friend will end if we didn’t. Crossing my fingers they break up or she can’t go. Sigh.

Oh my yes!! My FI’s ex… Loooooong story… her sister is a Bridesmaid or Best Man and my Fiance want to invite her mother so it would be rude not to invite her. (Hmm) I’m just planning on inviting Bridesmaid or Best Man and her husband and forgetting about the whole mother and sister. Also hoping some of my FI’s estranged family whom I’ve never met and he hasn’t seen in more than 5 years although they live here in Puerto Rico don’t come.

Bad as it sounds, I almost wish fiance’s family weren’t coming. I love them, but they’re already being judgemental of wedding plans and how everything “has” to be, so if they weren’t coming, I would feel so relaxed and happy to enjoy our non-traditional wedding.

Of course, I’m glad they support our marriage and want to be there, I just wish they woud leave the judgemental, traditional aspects of themselves at home!

My sister and I have not really spoken in 15 years accept for funerals. My oldest sister and her daughter asked me to invite her because it is the right thing to do. I personally dont want to see her face but I have no choice. So I have to put my big girl panties on but I have told my daughter if she drinks too much or come on to any of the soldiers THROW HER OUT.

We just buried my nanna last years and she came on to one of my niece’s boyfriends. Talk about embarrassed she is 49 and has a Fiance but still cant control her slutty behavior. I have distance myself from her because we are such polar opposites.

My Fiance has not met her yet and he wont until the day of the wedding. She has come on to every man I have dated  in the past they have all come back and told me of her behavior. I am not concerned about her taking anything from me it is just so embarrassing when someone you have dated comes to you and tell you that.

My Fiance and I are alike and he will read her because she cant hide who she is and he will say to me “babe she is really a trip huh”? (code word for slut)

I want all my named guests to attend… but I beleive in always extending +1s to each adult named guest. I’m hoping some of them will not take me up on it. But it’s fine if they do.

Our family doctor and his wife. who i work with. they are super sweet. but my family is really country and his family has a ton of routy boys. so i feel like they will be a little snooty or formal. they are just big city folk. My wedding will seem too redneck for them. i house sit for them all the time. and i feel terrible about feeling this way . my wedding was going to be a lot of close people (out of town) and his wife kind of invited themselves. 😕 what do i do say no. they pay me pretty good for watching their house and they are really nice. she doesnt even know i smoke because i know she would be super disapointed. so i secretly hope they have other plans.
