Regarding your cousin - you have every right to be upset. Especially since you are going to her wedding. Only one person on my dad's side is going to our wedding, and only one on my real mom's side is going. I feel bad because hardly none of my family is going and ALL of FI's family is going. I felt the same way you do, but in the end you have to look at who IS coming. It is hard not to be mad at the others. Has she mentioned who was going to her wedding? Maybe in the end you'll be the only one going to her wedding and you may have an opportunity to flip the tables on her and be her only person at her wedding from her family who goes. It is SO hard not to be upset, hurt and feel bad about it. Are you guys having an AHR?
We are not having an AHR. It is too expensive to have something, and most of the people that we invited to our DW would have had to travel to Chicago if we had something at home so who knows if they would come to an AHR either. We are having a shower, and all the out-of-state people have already declined. Since our wedding is in November it's not like we can have a casual BBQ either which would probably be the only thing we could afford to do if we had an AHR.
Danielle-I don't know who she is even inviting to her wedding so I don't know who is coming. She hasn't even told me the date! The last time we talked they were looking at May, but hadn't picked a date yet. She hasn't sent out any save-the-dates or anything.
I still need to respond to her email, but I had to cool down first otherwise I might say not so nice things. It's just frustrating since we were only going to invite immediate family and friends to the wedding, but then we decided we should extend an invitation to everyone and if they came they came and if not then no big deal. The most important people are going to be there and I just need to get over it, but for some reason this situation just really got to me. This is the first time I have gotten upset about someone not coming. Usually all the others I have been happy since it will be less money for us and one more OOT bag we won't need. How sad is that?
