Hi ladies, I'm currently planning my wedding and have decided not to invite my immediate family. I have a very strained relationship with my family and feel like it would ruin the day as I know my mother would pick fault with everything and my little brother would start a fight with someone. The problem I have is that I have other family that I would like to invite like my cousin and some aunties and uncles. How can I go about inviting people so my immediate family don't know?
Hi I don't think you will find this easy :)
Speak to the family members you want to be there and ask them to keep it quiet. Im sure they would respect your decision and probably be good people to talk to about it
I think in honesty you are not going to be able to stop them from finding out. You can try speaking to the family you want to invite about the situation, I am sure they will understand, but it wont stop anyone from possibly slipping up and letting your immediate family know.
