I really didn’t think we would have to deal with this.
We are having an adults-only reception, and didn’t invite any family (on either of our sides) that wasn’t very very close.
We went to a wedding on Saturday, Brendan’s cousin. She had invited every relative in the world, second cousins, etc. Step cousins. She is such a warm and friendly person, and wanted everyone to be included.
And we ended up at a table with step-cousins that:
1. Are not invited to our wedding
2. Had 2 children under 5 (highchairs, anyone)
As we are leaving the wedding, they say “See you at your wedding in October!”
