My sister in law eats meat and I don't want her at my summer get together. I'm having a gathering in July for my pre wedding get together, all girls, friends and family. I already invited my five closest besties. We're all vegan and I also invited my mom and aunt who are vegan as well. So I have a problem. I have two sister in laws one is vegetarian BUT my other sister in law eats meat so I honestly don't want her there because it's going to annoy the hell out of me and 2 she probably won't want tofu burgers for dinner because she didn't eat them last time and it's her problem not mine. Do you think it's okay to leave her out? Idk how to do it though 😐 Also, she adds nothing to the vegan conversation. Like we talk about vegan movements and actions and animal rights and she sits there in silence because she's convinced she's "omnivore." I'm not trying to be mean I just think meat eaters are not my type of people.
Of course, you must invite her. No one can “annoy the hell out of you” unless you let them. Did you ever think that maybe you are very annoying to her? Is it possible you have an eating disorder? I have seen research that says some people are using veganism to hide an eating disorder. Why would you care what another adult eats and why do you have to have a “vegan conversation” at your pre wedding get together? The mature (and polite) thing to do as a hostess is to start conversations that are fun and that everyone can join, which means no politics, religion or big causes like animal rights. To say any group is “not your type of people” is very narrow minded and judgmental because you would have to meet every omnivore in the world to form an accurate opinion.
Put out a variety of vegan food and just have a good time. Your sister-in-law will not be expecting you to cook meat for her, I can guarantee she knows you are vegan, and she will only attend to be polite and if she cannot find an excuse to get out of it. You have a lot more stressful times coming up with the actual wedding day so just let this go, mind your own business, do not discuss veganism at your party and relax and enjoy. Do not discuss this with your fiancé or soon to be mother in law, it will only create tension.
