    You and your Fiance are in charge of who you invite…not feuding families. You can’t make everyone happy and as the saying goes, weddings and funerals bring out the best and worst in people…

    I personally don’t think you need to involve all of your cousins/step cousins…that is just crazy. Not everyone can participate and that’s just that. Keep it to who you’re close with and if questioned, just say you’re trying to keep the wedding party small or even though you’d like to have every cousin, you just can’t.

    In the end, the wedding is about you and your Fiance…I know it’s hard to try to please everyone but IMO, it’s nearly impossible.

    Good luck!

    Ugh, I hear you, my parents are both remarried and Mr. Roux is the product of his Dad’s 2nd marriage. It can get complicated for sure.

    I think you should invite everyone, its not worth risking ‘taking sides’ in a family feud. If it is that bigger deal then some won’t come.

    Also I don’t think you have to include anyone (cousins etc) in your bridal party if you don’t want to. If you just want your close cousins then thats fine. If anyone takes offense you could always create positions for the other kids, (handing out programs, blowing bubbles, etc.)
