Over the weekend i found out what is being said to me for not inviting some cousins to the wedding reception. (they're invited to the after dance).

Apparently i'm a snooty bitch, and i should have invited them as a family. What the fuck ever.

There is such a double standard here it's not funny, my parents have been invited to weddings of two of their children where i have only been invited to the after dance. One of the girls in the family is better friends with me than the others so she got invited to the whole thing along with her husband.

Apparenly i've caused the family feud of the century. My grandpa would not be pleased.


the future mother in law has decided that we did not invite enough people from their side of the family (i counted up the other night it was a 50/50 split), most of them declined which is not my fault but she thinks that people from their side should be invited in their I've invited more people from my side because they will actually show up and i'm not inviting people that i've never met just so that they feel their numbers are even.

We had similar issues at the beginning, so right from the outset we put a limit on it - parents were allowed to fill their own table (8 person table) with friends - so 6 people each. Then we invited family that we'd seen regularly over the last couple of years. The mix of guests at our wedding stands at 50% family 50% friends.

I haven't heard if there's any backlash from some of our distant mates who we didn't invite, but I'm sure there's bound to be. I just ignore it. I'm stressed enough :)

Told you it would get worse! Invitations are a guaranteed source of wedding woes, if that's any solace. Don't worry about it. Just focus on how gorgeous you will look, and they will all start rolling around on the ground frothing at the mouth with undiluted jealousy at the sight of you.
