My brother is getting married in September and today i found out that my children are not invited to the wedding. They are having a child free wedding, although 8 year olds are invited.
A bit of background info:
-The bride was my bridesmaid in Feb this year.
-They are not having a bridal party as the bride just wants the day to be about them, despite having heard my brother express on numerous occasions that he wanted 2 groomsman- guys he had known since the age of 10.
-They are godparents to 2 of my children.
-We were all invited to the engagement party.
The news came as a huge shock and I was gutted to say the least. It was my mum who told me. When she was told she let them know how upset I would be etc etc etc. I tried calling him after I found out but he didn't answer so I had to settle with sending each of them a text message, to which I got no response. Nothing.
The wedding is in the middle of nowhere and all of my family are invited. When my mum asked her who did she think I was going to get to look after the girls her response was "her friend with all the kids". My friend has 3 children of her own and I would never offload my children onto somebody else. Not to mention the fact that my dd3 is extremely clingy which they are all to well aware of.
The bride is controlling and manipulative but my brother is just as bad for going along with her wants. I have told him that our relationship will be irreparable from now. I will never have anything to do with either of them again.
I just really want these feelings of hurt and anger to go away.
