Maybe you should just say "well we aren’t that close anymore" or, if she really starts pissing you off, drop the bomb on the drug stuff, LoL. I’d totally do that

You can’t control how other people will act; you can only control how you react.  Just don’t give this drama seeker any more of your attention– she’ll settle down if nobody’s feeding her fire, just like any little kid who is throwing a temper tantrum eventually does.

I was going to have the same suggestion as ejs.  he he!  Seriously, you can see where the cousin gets it, since her own mother seems to be throwing fit (in a silent way..)

That got me thinking, when I got married, I had my one cousin in my wedding, but my other cousin (her sister) I didn’t ask. I gave it brief thought, but really it wassimilar to you (minus the drug offer).  The other cousin just moved away.  I hadn’t seen her in a while.  The cousin I asked, I was closer to.  No one blew a fuse.  The other cousin came to my wedding, and ws fine.  I’m sorry you couldn’t have the same experience.

Don’t even get me started! 🙂 My Maid/Matron of Honor is male. The comments have been endless and most of them involve telling me who I should have picked instead of him, my very good friend with whom I speak everyday. Yeah…

 My standard argument is: weddings are emotionally stressful and I’m sure to have lots of pre-wedding jitters. I need someone who knows me and Fiance really well, is supportive of the marriage, and able to calm me down. At least for me, I’m not that comfortable around near-stranger relatives!
