any one on your "invite" or "do not invite" list that other members of your family were unhappy with?

My mom cut off two family members from dad's side on me, but that's because she knows the BS that's going on and I don't.

Other than that I've not really added anyone who could cause any ripples. There is an ex I'd like to invite, but woody would have a fit, so I won't. We're giving his ex an invite, so it seems like a double standard... but I have self esteem, he doesn't so I'm being nice.

We had to keep the wedding pretty small. Only about 100 guests, so I didn't invite tons of extended family like great aunts and uncles. We ended up getting a lot of flack for it a couple months later at DH's family reunion. It was annoying to have to find a way to explain why we didn't invite them. Finally I just started saying, "we were poor and couldn't afford to invite tons of people." LOL that usually shut them up.

I got flack for not inviting an uncle. His wife still won't talk to me. Won't even look at me if we're in the same room. But really, I'd rather my friends be there than him. My friends wouldn't have been able to come without their kids and he is a convicted child molester. Sorry, but I don't like you anyway!

I have so few friends. So we're inviting everyone. We're only doing snacks and such, so it's not like it's a huge problem.

And thanks augie, I just realized that I cannot invite my cousin. He's a registered offender because he knocked up a young girl... I had him on the list. I'll have to send him an invite but tell him if he still has his restrictions he can't attend.

The only thing that comes to mind for me is my mom was unhappy that i invited my dad's girlfriend and her family. My parents have been divorced for years now and my dad has been with this woman for a number of years after my parents divorced. I'm close to her and her daughters so it was just natural for me to invite them. I understand my mom's unhappiness with it, but this woman had nothing to do with the divorce and well it was my decision to invite them

My mom and I are at odds about HER boyfriend. She wants him to sit next to her, not back with the random people. But I've never met him, I don't want him sitting in the spot that would be reserved for my father.

My grandmother's already told her she's not obligated to attend, my grandfather will give me away if she wont pull her head outta her butt.

I always say its your day, you do what you are comfortable with. What i did was sat my dad's girlfriend with her family, but i'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that you're not inviting this guys family I don't see a problem with sitting him "with the random people" but i understand that you mother would object. But in all honestly, it's a boyfriend, it's not a spouse....and especially given the fact that you haven't even met this man, i back you up 100% in your decision! I know it doesn't mean much that i back you up, and well your mom's not gonna care that i back you up either but stand behind your decision
