I'd imagine this subject has been asked before but does anyone else have a split family? My parents split when I was younger and so for the wedding it’s like I have 2 sides to my family before we even get to H2Bs. My mum’s side is small, as is H2Bs... my dad is 1 of 7, and would like all his sisters there... these are aunts and uncles that I barely see and H2B has never met in the 3 years we have been together! Am I being unreasonable if I just want to invite these family members to the evening? Tia

Not at all. Just explain to your dad that only people who you both see regularly will be invited to the day

Not at all. We are having a very small day time and then a lot of people in the evening

I'm having the same thing at the moment, but they dont live close so either I invite to day or they wont travel 6 odd hours just for the evening... Also, why not doing a traditional top table

Not at all! I'm not inviting some of my relatives (and they live locally!). They have made no effort to keep in touch with me, and when I do bump into them it's always me putting the effort into the conversation and getting closed answers. If they can't be bothered to even make a bit of chit chat occasionally then I don't want them at my wedding. It's your day, invite who you want there.
