My Dad & his whole family are not being invited. I feel out with the lot of them years ago.

I have 1 uncle ans 2 aunts (maybe 3)plus 10 first cousins not coming to our wedding. I think most families have at least 1 family member that wouldn't be going their wedding

uncle & wife treated parents like dirt, they still want to invite them. JUST DONT GET IT.

elainemon H2B has a hugh amount of first cousins. We told the family that we couldn't invite everyone & was only inviting those that we were close to. Don't know if that is a help

elainemon, could you just invite the brothers to the evening reception? Surely they would understand if there are no other cousins going to the whole day. Your bridesmaid would obviously be the exception to that rule - and completely understandable

couple of my aunts n uncles on my mams side wont be going because they(mams sisters) treated my mother and the rest of her family including their own parents like crap,couple of aunts and uncles on my dads side wont be going either as my dad does not really talk to them anymore(never asked why,never really crossed my mind)I asked him if he wanted me to invite them and he said no so that's fair enough!!

good idea but there will be alot of cousins coming as they young and they would not be able to get to the evening reception so i know i would have to invite those. its so nerve wrecking.
