We got an invitation to my nieces wedding. It is addressed to me and my husband.  My husband wants nothing to do with my family due to all the crap they have put us through! I feel I should go because she is my niece. I was going to take my son with me. I do not want to go by myself.  My son is an adult,not a child,if that helps. I know there will be alot of drama! I was thinking about going to the church then to the reception after the dinner part is over! I cannot afford the expense for the cost of the plates. I was going to by them a little gift.

We are not even close to being back on our feet,financially.  What would you do,ladies?

 how far from you is the wedding?

I would probably go to the church alone, give her a hug on the way out, and put a small gift in the mail

Given the situation, I think this is the appropriate thing to do.   If your son wouldn't mind going with you, I think that would be fine, but also OK for you to go alone if he doesn't care to.   This way you show respect by being there for the wedding and you give them a gift you can afford.

The church is like a 10 or 15 minute drive. The place for the reception is a little further.

 As much as I would want to be at her recption I wouldnt go. Its her day and I wouldnt want a shit show because other people couldnt handle me being there. Go to the church. Give her a huge hug and kiss and wish her well. Give a small gift if you can afford to.

Hugs hun Im sorry.

Surround yourself with people that add to your life not subtract from it.

Is  this  another wedding?  Because you asked this same question a month ago. [Just curious]
