This forum/site has been very helpful to me in my planning so far and I am hoping some of you lovely ladies could help me out....I'm in need of some advice from some other pre and post destination wedding brides!
Here's the situation...
The date is set and invitations are ready to go out. My fiance and I both want a rather small group of people coming.....those who are close to us and who we would like to enjoy a week of fun in the sun with! For the most part, we've agreed on who we've wanted to attend....except for one person.
I'm going to try to avoid sounding petty and whiney....We both grew up with this woman. He had a positive relationship with her and his parents and her parent are (and continue to be best friends). I have had a negative relationship with her----nothing major----we just don't click. She hasn't been nice to some of my family members in the past and she is constantly seeking attention and annoying (to me).
We see this girl and her husband in group settings approximately once per year (as most). Neither my FI and I keep in contact with them throughout the year.
His parents and her parents are very close and they are being invited to the wedding.
The dilema: He would like to invite "her" and her husband but I do not. This is causing more friction in our relationship than I would like it to. Ultimately, I believe that he should support me given that I will not be comfortable or happy spending a week with her. While I understand that they grew up on the same street and that their parents are friends I do not understand why it is so important that they be invited (especially since it will indefinitely make me unhappy the week of our wedding.
Has anyone been through any similar experiences (feeling pressured to invite people that you do not want to spend a week with)?! I'm sure you have!
Any advice on what to do would be greatly appriciated!
