Hi. I would like opinions about if and how to invite my Godmother to my Small wedding. I have a big family and I really broke tradition to have a small non 200+ person wedding. It is not so much because of budget or COVID as it is about having less stress both leading up to and on the day, although the other reasons are nice too.
We decided to do just immediate family and some friends. My mom is not excited about the idea. I have 4 aunts and uncles on my moms side and 2 aunts on my Dads side, most of which I feel close to. I want to make an exception for my Godmother to attend but I’m worried it will hurt my other aunts and uncles feelings (especially my Dads other sister.) My Godmother is one of my Dads 2 sisters and the only one who lives out of state (until last month when my dads other sister moved to the same city) but I still feel close to her even though I saw her a lot less. Also I thought it would be nice to have the woman who baptized me be there for my Catholic wedding. Is it wrong to make an exception? How do I do it without hurting feelings and playing favorites?
