    Long story short, my uncle cannot make it, but his wife is asking for an invitation. I rarely speak to them, and I do no like her! She is very manipulative. Invites went out and RSVP date is June 1st. My mom doesn't like her either and REALLY doesn't want her to go. Now she hasn't directly asked me, but has asked my Grandpa where her invitation was? What should I do?

      If you don't want to invite her then don't. I know I didn't invite my mom's sister, but that is on a whole other level. I don't even consider her family.

      If you don't invite her, I would just be prepared for any family drama that might occur. Sucks that she's putting your grandfather in the middle. Since your mom doesn't really like her either it might not be so bad.

        It is your day and you can do what you want, but as brides, of course we'd prefer to rock the boat as little as possible (less clean up to do afterwards). :P How about sending them BOTH an invitation (kind of on the assumption that as a couple, if your uncle can't make it, she would want to wait to celebrate your wedding with your uncle present) for the AHR if you're having one or offer to take them both out for dinner b/c as much as you appreciate her willingness to come, you and FI do not want to leave out your uncle and would instead love to celebrate with them TOGETHER in town.

        Hope you find a resolution that makes you happy and drama-free!
