Wedding invite etiquette: Is it bad etiquette to invite all family members but one?
posted by SndyLnd to Human Relations (17 answers total)
I'm getting married this fall. There is a family that consists of 4 members: mom, dad, and 2 adult daughters. Mom and dad are part of my parents guest list and since I know the older daughter (but not close to her), I am inviting her and her boyfriend. Up until a year ago, I didn't even know the name of the younger daughter or that she even existed. Is it bad etiquette to invite all family members but the youngest daughter (which will also include her boyfriend)?
We have a small budget for the reception and are trying to keep the number of guests as low as possible, so adding 2 additional people we don't know doesn't make sense to us. We also don't want to cause any bad blood between our two families by not inviting the other daughter.
Thank you in advance for your thoughts.
