@ambereyez:  “Due to venue constraints, the ceremony and reception have been limited to close family and friends.” And this is only if she contacts you. If she doesn’t have an invite, she wasn’t invited.

If she is the only one in your family not invited, maybe she really was just checking to make sure the invitation didn’t get lost without bothering you. If she contacts you, I think the PP above gave a great resonse.

I don’t even know that an explanation is required.

She knows she’s not invited, and I highly doubt she will contact you.

Depends on who is it. I don’t speak to my Future Sister-In-Law and I have to go to her wedding, in your case, your cousin probably feels left out and thought because she is family, regardless of the circumstances, she would be invited.

@axeyourmakeupkit:   I agree. If she does ask where the invite is, tell her you didn’t invite her because you haven’t spoken in four years. It’s self-explanatory.

no explanation required, if you are invited you get and invite if you are not you dont!

I had a cousin who did this they called my mom.  I have never really been close to them and I really dont care for them.  I didnt want to invite them b/c well we just arent close.  They told my mom they really wanted to come to our wedding, and that his wife would shoot our wedding video for free (she has no background in it) it was just so odd how pushy they were.  My mom told them that we were having a small wedding and that my Fiance and I were in charge of the guest list…. and left it at that

I was told that I should invite my cousins too, I haven’t spoken to most of them for at least a decade or more – because they’re “family”.  I don’t feel the need to invite anyone who doesn’t support or love me, so they probably won’t be there. Someone said it best –
“Why invite people you don’t even know, or even like?”

well she is family. There will be plenty of family members at my wedding (and non-family) who I don’t speak to on a regular basis.

its your wedding only the people you love and want at your wedding should be at your wedding, I would never invite somebody just b/c they are family!  Thats so silly
