I’m sorry! Since its family, though, I would just grin and bear it. I know how tempting it is to ‘accidentally’ give her a different card, but in the end be a gracious bride toward your uncle who ran it past you (well kind of) instead of just showing up with her!

Yeh, this would bug me too. I would probably just suck it up though (as irritating as it will be). You likely won’t notice here there (well, other than the bill you’ll receive for her plate!) & in the end you don’t anger an uncle, you know?

Ps. I’m assuming this aunt and uncle are no longer married?

also keep in mind she might not know she was not invited as he might have handled the invite, so making her unwelcome might be mis-placed!

I’d still leave a placecard for his "aunt" (the real one) out and hope she sees it.  I have pms.  I keep having to say this over and over.

Why is she um…not a very welcome guest?

That really sucks.  That is one of my biggest fears.

Ugh, this is totally annoying, and as someone who had a small wedding, I totally sympathize! When you aren’t having a big crowd, every face counts…..and when you have someone random, they stick out like a sore thumb! We had TWO random uninvited people show up with no advance notice or even a mention that they would be coming from the people who brought them! In the end though, just give your caterer the best head count you can, and have A FEW blank place cards.  I had my Mother-In-Law put out blank cards for them once they showed up but it was definately annoying! Invites, assumed invites, requests to bring dates/friends, and lack of RSVP cause all kinds of irritation when planning a wedding!

That sounds like you went to some great steps to make sure everybody was included and such detail!  I understand how you feel.
