I have one neice. I was not invited to the wedding and never told. My family kept it a secret and haven’t mentioned it to this day.
I found out through a friend about the wedding day and plans.
I was mortified. If my family didn’t want me there, they should have told me. My sister in law is too stupid to have told me, but my brother should have. I am very upset.

I’m sorry you are so upset by this! Weddings can be so difficult for families. I have 8 uncles and 7 aunts, most of whom are married. I invited 2 uncles and 2 aunts, and their families, to my wedding. I just couldn’t fit the entire family and chose to invite the people who had been most involved with my life and my parents’ lives. However, it was not a secret – my parents were very upfront with their siblings about our plans and most people were understanding (and if they weren’t, they didn’t tell us!) I would talk to your brother about what happened and that you are upset you were never told. Try not to blame the couple too much – weddings are really tricky to organise and there is no way you are able to keep everyone happy in the planning!

Do you know why you weren’t invited? Any clue? I think if I had a neice/nephew and wasn’t invited to the wedding I’d be pissed and very hurt. In my family you are invited to the wedding no matter what kind of drama is going on.

I did not invite relatives to my wedding that I am not close to; we wanted to have a small, intimate gathering.
