try and reason with them, find out why they arent coming and see if you can solve things that way. if not then i dont know sorry :)

2019 is still a while away so I wouldn't panic as things can change. Final numbers don't need to be given to the venue until closer to the time and meanwhile you can try to remain calm (I know, easier said than done). If you don't stress but let them know that they will be invited they should have the manners to let you know one way or the other formally once they have the actual invitiation. Perhaps they are just trying to wind you up but if not perhaps they will tell you why they are being so difficult and it can be sorted. At the end of the day you and your H2B want to get married and that is what matters. It is your family's loss if they want to be difficult but you should concentrate on you and your H2B. Good luck.

I'd tell them to stuff it then how dare they say they aren't coming. I really wouldn't beg them to come. They will be the ones missing out concentrate on the people who want to be part of your day and grateful for an invite.

Take that time to come to terms with the fact they are not going....remind yourself its their loss and their stupidity and do not let them ruin your day x
