I'm having some problems with how I should address some of my invitations - and who to.
Three of my good girl friends are single mums; one is a widow (and divorcee) with two boys by her first husband and a girl by her second. My question about her is this; should I have: and guest, on her invite? All three of her kids are being invited, and we can accommodate a guest, but I know she's not dating anyone, so is it just pointless?
The second is also a divorcee who has two daughters, and I know for definite that she is dating someone, but her kids haven't met him yet. I don't know if I should invite him on her invitation along with her girls as a guest or not. I don't want to invite him and then for her kids to find out and be annoyed that he's asked when they haven't met him yet, or, on the other hand, for her to be a little miffed at him not having been invited at all.
The third has one daughter and is dating one of my fiance's groomsmen. They've been together for a year now I think, but they don't live together. He has met her daughter though. I don't know whether and we should send them one invite together, one each and not include a guest, or just to invite one each and to include a guest anyway, even though I know they'll be with each other. My mum says the third option id the right one, but it seems a little pointless.
My last problem is this: My cousin is married, but she and her husband do not live in the same house. He lives in a flat in Rome (but only during the week) and she lives in a house in Vienna, with their four daughters. Should I send the invite to all of them at her house, or one to her and the kids at the house, and another, just to him at the flat?
