Need some expert advice.. to invite or not?

Recommended Posts

This is tough - I'm having the same situation with regard to my step-sister. Dad wants her there, I have no relationship with her whatsoever, save a meal each year during the Xmas holidays. (Dad has only been married to step-mom for 5 years, and I live on the other side of the country.)

 

In the end, I'll proably send her the invite just to keep the peace, but I don't want her there, and I'm going to resent being pushed to invite someone I didn't want to invite. To me, that is the killer - everytime I see her there, I'm going to get a little ticked off. The things we do to keep the ones we love happy...

This is such a personal choice because only you know the depth of your friendship. I personally would invite her because she WAS a grood friend of yours and still good friends with everyone else right? I would hate to make her feel bad.

 

Plus if she's going to the other DW in June, she probably won't come to yours. I would extend the offer so it would be awkward when you see her at the other weddings.

If it were me, I would invite her. There is a high probability that she won't come and it will keep the peace within your group of friends.

I wonder if you can get a feel from the other girls if she would come to your wedding or not. If she tells them she doesn't think so than just sent her an announcement only, if you sent her an invite she may feel obligated to attend.

 

If she saids she thinks she would attend, I agree with trying to keep the peace with your friends and invite her.

I would invite her. It's unlikely that she comes but if she does come it sounds like you do actually like her - it's not like someone you hate. Plus it will just save you future awkwardness with her at the other wedding or in the future.

out of courtesy you should invite her. i mean if you were friends and in a tight group before it would be awkward to not be the one invited. could cause a ripple within the group. plus if its a DW who says they will even show up right? maybe it will rekindle the friendship again if she does come... you never know..

 

plus if they dont go they might just get you something sweet off the registry wink.gif haha

we're going through the same thing kinda. we're sending the invite anyway so that we cant be accused of leaving them out, but we know theyll most likely decline anyway, so we're not worried about it.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
