- Wedding: July 2013
so my man and i are getting married later this year and we are finalizing our guest-list. we are on a pretty tight budget and its been hard deciding who to cut and who to keep as a guest.
my question for you is if i should invite my 2 sisters. before you think im crazy, let me explain that they are half-sisters and i have only known them about 5 years. Our dad died when I was very young (they are both way older than me) and our moms never told us about eachother. When we first met a few years ago we talked some, hung out some (we all have kids too) but in the past 2 years I have not seen either of them once. One lives 5 min away, the other 30 min. Sister 1 posts random photos and silly stuff on my facebook page all the time and says “miss you” randomly but thats the extent of our relationship. They constantly get together and never invite me, even going as far as meeting at the park down the street from my house and no text or anything. Sister # 2 called me over a year ago to plan a time to meet my newborn daughter but never showed up and i havent heard from her in anyway since then! I have seen her 2 times at the restaurant where she works (when i was out with a friend) and it was very awkward. she was nice but never said sorry for not coming by or anything. I think its one of those things where so much time passed they she felt awkward but basically i have no relationship with either of them
My fiance is disgusted by their lack of effort (because i have made some and just finally gave up). I know the one sister posts facebook stuff all the time but i cant just invite her and not the other one and that isnt much anyways. Bottomline is I do not want to invite them (and their husbands who I have never met and do not know) but Im gonna assume i will get a lot of s*** from sister #1 if i dont (she is kinda loud and obnoxiously honest).
would you invite them because they are technically family? or is it okay to just say we are only able to have our very closest friends and family there?
Thanks so much!!
