The bride-to-be was favored online for not inviting her eligible sister to the wedding again after the wedding was changed to a trip to Hawaii
Preparing for a wedding is hard work. It is difficult not only because it takes a lot of time and has a myriad of options to choose from, but also because it is very “painful” financially. Unless you’re having a garden wedding with your family, it may take years to save enough money for your wedding. But generally speaking, most couples want to have all of their close friends and family on their special day.
But if a couple were planning a big wedding but found that they weren’t able to accommodate enough guests, why not adjust a little and take a short vacation in a fancy place?

The author believes there is sufficient evidence to support his position, but the sisters feel they are being unfair
The original poster (OP) kicks off the story by showcasing plans for the big wedding she and her fiancée have in July. , after only 14 responses stating that guests can come, decided to indulge. Once the OP decided to switch the wedding to a trip to Hawaii and pay for all expenses for the guests, they double-checked with the guests to see if they could get a few more days off, and planning soon began.
No sooner had plans changed than the story’s antagonist, the author’s sister, sent an RSVP that she and her family were not coming, and was upset that she had not received a “re-invitation.” . According to her, it was basically another trip and they were supposed to be informed about this and invited again.
The OP also shares why her sister and her family were originally unable to come. The most difficult season for my husband’s business. Her 3 hour drive with kids would be too difficult.
Now, the author stresses that the plane trip to Hawaii is almost nine hours long, so it makes no sense how the sisters could come. , brings up that the brother and his family go, and the cousin goes, so the sisters’ children feel left out. People complain that they pulled the “reverse bait and switch”.
However, the poster’s sister and her family add five more guests, far exceeding the couple’s budget. According to the author, the only option is to significantly downgrade the already promised vacation, which would be highly unfair to the other participants.

After this story, many Reddit users agreed. The sisters don’t care about the wedding, they just want a free trip. How can her kids suddenly “survive” much longer drives and flights? And surprisingly, how business isn’t busy? Several people have written suggestions for message templates that can describe Simply put, you want to go, but you have to pay for the trip yourself.
For context, rsvpify On average, 83% of guests indicated they would attend a user’s wedding, and 17% of invitees reported declining the invitation. Knowing that percentage, it’s pretty amazing to see close family members decline invitations.
It’s interesting to point out that, according to Research by The Knot In 2019, traditional weddings are (usually) even more expensive than their destination counterparts. So a suggestion from one Redditor might work in this situation. Once this is done it will become clear if the problem is a new invite or if you want a free chip.
