I hope all you lovely people are well! I need your advice on the dreaded guest list.....
I can imagine that my problem is a very common one and I just don't know what to do. I come from a fairly large family and have lots of cousins, 2 of which (Dad's side of the family) I am very close to and have no doubt in my mind that I will be inviting them to the whole day. I then have another 3 cousins who I see at all our family events (Dad's side of the family) and would quite like to be at the whole day. Now comes the dilemma....... I have another 4 cousins on my Mum's side who I don't really see or know well at all and I can't really justify them being at the whole day.
Now, if I invite the 3 cousins that I always see at family events and not the 4 cousins who I never see I know that I will upset my mum and potentially my Aunty and Uncle and I really don't want to do that
There are also another 2 cousins who I haven't seen for years and know nothing about (also Mum's side of the family) so won't be inviting them at all - we weren't invited to their weddings so not too worried on that front!
So who do I invite? We worked out that it would cost an extra £455 ish to have the 7 of them there - alot of money for people I'm not close to!
This is driving me mad, I would hate to upset up anyone!
All advice most gratefully received.
