Nephew's Wedding

veronicasgrandma

I am not on speaking terms with my sister, her choice not mine. It's been several years since we last spoke. She basically told me off and said she wanted nothing to do with me ever again. Without getting into all the details, her attack on me was unwarranted. She's done this before and even though the ball wasn't in my court I would be the one to reach out, again. Anyway, her son is now getting married and I received an invite. Not sure how to handle this. I was very close to my nephew when he was growing up and have stayed in contact. What would you do? I would like to support my nephew and his bride by attending but I also respect that this is a special day for his mom too.

You should go--it is the bride and groom's choice of who to invite and they invited YOU. You don't have to do more than smile and say hello to your sister.

Your nephew is opening a door. Go for it! Just smile and be nice.

I agree. Remember that NOT going sends a message, too. Be a lovely guest and have a nice time.

Went to the wedding, reached out to my sister more than I had to, and we had a great time. My nephew was very appreciate that we were there. Thanks for the advice, it pays to listen.

Hi, Travis, and welcome. You might not've noticed that the last post in this thread was 8 months ago and the OP has already updated this thread with the new that she went.
