Not inviting the grooms sister
Really need some advice. We have recently sent out our wedding invites but the grooms parents are sating they won't be coming unless we invite his sister and niece.
The reason they haven't been invited is that since we have been together they have given me a really hard time and sent some disgusting messages to me partner stating how much they dislike me without even getting to know me! They also hated his ex wife but since their split they have become like her best friends. I have been treated like the 'other woman' from day one and this was not the case. If there are any birthdays or family get togethers they have always contacted his ex and not invited him or me and my children. Our birthdays are ignored and we are basically treated like we don't exist which goes down fine with both of us. They are really nasty two faced women. We haven't spoken to them for a year and the last thing I want is to walk down the aisle wondering what they are saying about me. I'm already having to put up with his ex coming to our venue later in the evening to collect his children (as she has booked a holiday for the next day) and it seems like there will be more to dread about the day than look forward to. These 2 have really got me down since we met and been close to splitting us up so the last thing we want is to look back on what should be our special day and have pictures of them pretending to play happy families.
Does anyone have any suggestions, I said as a compromise we could invite them to the evening and just hope they didn't come (although I know his sister will) they family are sucking all of the happiness out of our planning!
