Talkback: BRIDE WARS: Evening Guests – rude and unnecessary or a way to include everyone?
I had to decline a Evening invitation from my cousin (mums side of the family). Me and my sister both received evening invitations whereas my mum and her new partner received an invitation to the whole day! This made us feel a bit segregated from our own family. It's hard as the invitation was from 8pm in Hampshire. Both myself and my sister live 2 hrs drive away from the location (in opposite directions), whereas my mum will be there from 3pm. accommodation was £99 which I couldn't afford meaning I would have left by 10:30pm to catch the last train. 4 hours travelling to be at a reception for 2 hours. I know I should be grateful for the invite but I'd rather I didn't get one at all as now I seem rude for declining.
