Teresa Giudice's nuptials will have two notably vacant seats on the bride's side.
Sources confirm to PEOPLE that the bride-to-be's brother, Joe Gorga, and his wife, Melissa Gorga,
will not be attending their Real Housewives of New Jersey costar's wedding to her fiancé Luis

" "very tense" between the two couples while recently filming the upcoming RHONJ season
after he asked for Joe's blessing, revealed that Melissa, 43, will not be a bridesmaid in her wedding
while appearing on Watch What Happens Live in March. Melissa shared her reaction shortly
after on her podcast On Display: "I wish her nothing but happiness. I'm very happy that she's happy.
I love to see her smile when she's with Louie. Whatever she decides, it's her wedding and I'll be fine with it."
The Love Italian Style author married Joe, 42, in 2004 and they share daughter Antonia, 16, and sons
