We are not inviting my mother to my wedding this upcoming September.  She has not been in my life since I was 16 and I feel, as much as the day is for me, it is also for the family that has been there for me when I have needed them the most.  Having her there would be extremely awkward and uncomfortable for me.

We’re not inviting our fathers.

FI’s dad ran out on him and his brother soon after they were born. His mother has not remarried and he wants nothing to do with his father.

My dad was an asshole and caused a huge rift in our family for years. I do not speak with him, do not plan to, and his can kiss my 🙂 if he even thinks he’s getting an invite.

I can’t wait for our dance with our mothers. They’re our graces, even though Future Mother-In-Law drives me up the wall sometimes. LOL.

We won’t be inviting FIs parents. He has been estranged from them for about a year and a half, maybe two. They are wildly judgemental and they don’t consider Fiance successful because he isn an engineer like his dad. So we don’t bother speaking to them.

My Dad is not welcome at our wedding, we had a major falling out two years ago and there is no way he can repair the damage he’s done.

My dad is not invited. He’s been on drugs since I can remember. And while he’s relatively nice to me now, he’s got the drug addict temperment and I have a bad feeling if he were invited it would be a huge blow up at the reception or even during the ceremony so he’s not invited. I told him this as well.

Well, I’m not NOT inviting my biological father, however, he is NOT walking me down the aisle, which he had assumed he was.

I plan to tell him ahead of time so he can choose whether or not to come to my wedding at all. I figure he probably won’t out of embarrassment.

We only inviting my mom. The is the best, and the loves us both. My family lives overseas, so I hope she will make it. My step dad, doesnt seem to care, so that’s a no, and my biological dad…well never saw him…my Fiance never had a father and his mother didnt take a good care of him. He moved out when he was 16. We dont invite her. She doesnt even know that her son is engaged, or there is a girl like me in her sons life

we are not inviting Fiance dad and stepmom. A lot of drama went down between the three of them regarding money and a lot of deceitfulness.

I didn’t invite my bio-father.  I haven’t actually seen or spoken to him in about 8 years.  (He chose long ago to focus his efforts on his relationship with his wife’s daughters instead.)

I didn’t invite my father. I haven’t spoken to him since I was about 20 (7 years ago) and he is not a part of my life.
