My daughter’s wedding is next week.
At this late stage of the game we have relatives throwing us curve balls.
While I’ve handled most, there is one that has me stumped.
We are using a location provided by my aunt because it’s free and due to my husband spending half of 2012 unemployed we could not afford the location my daughter wanted. As there are 11 siblings between my husband and me and more cousins… My daughter and her fiancé worked hard to keep family they are close with in balance with a manageable guest list. This means that there are many relatives not invited.
Last week my aunt informed us that one of her daughters (lives out of state) will be in town and attending the wedding. The problem, my daughter has never met this person. We have now learned that is more than just a relative visiting at the right moment! I have now learned that this aunt took the wedding invite we sent to her and forwarded it to this daughter! The daughter acknowledging that she didn’t believe she was “really” invited, took the rsvp card intended for my aunt (who like others did not mail back their pre address postage paid rsvp, instead calling or messaging it to my daughter) and mailed the rsvp to a wedding.
We’ve handled all other guest issues that came our way with other family members. This one has me troubled. I’ve had a strained relationship with this aunt over the last couple years and it was nice of her to offer the location but I feel that she should be reprimanded for this poor conduct.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
