wedding invitation etiquette
My son is getting married. He and his bride are inviting their grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins. That makes it easy for the guest list - except there are two special situations.
#1: One of the aunts (my husband's sister) married a man with two children from his previous marriage. At the time, his daughter was 13 and lived with him, and his son was grown and on his own (20-something). In the 20 years they've been married, we've never met this step-nephew or heard him mentioned a second time. Will it be rude to invite the step-niece (and her husband) but not the step-nephew?
#2: One of the uncles (my husband's brother) married a woman with a teenage daughter. This step-niece moved out after a year or two. My husband and I met her at the wedding, but haven't seen her since. Our son has never met her. I think she needs to be invited because she is a cousin. Am I right in thinking it would be rude to leave her out?
