I am getting ready to address all of our invites, and I have a couple that have me somewhat stumped:
Guest 1: A single mother, with a teenage daughter, both invited, and I would like to give the mother the option to bring a guest (she isn't currently dating anyone, but you never know what could happen). Just not certain of the wording on the envelope for her.
Guest 2: So I have friends that are in a polyamorous relationship. I had really only planned to invite the woman and her partner that I know, I don't know her other partner at all. I am friends with her and the one partner, am I obligated to invite all 3? None of them live together. I don't think she will be surprised or upset if I only invited the one, because the three of them don't attend events as a social unit (hence why I've never met the other partner). I'm at a loss.
Several other guests: FI has some cousins that have "on again off again" partners. FI's mom basically told me to just give them all an "and guest" because it's hard to keep track of if they are dating or not. That seems rude, but I also feel awkward contacting them basically the day invites go out to see if they are "on again". I want to be respectful of relationships of course. My cousin invited me to his wedding, along with my then ex-husband, 3 months after I had already moved out. I don't want to be that person. It was insulting that he couldn't even bother to find out my relationship status, and I declined that invite for several reasons. I mean, it's a bit different because we didn't split and get back together a bunch of times, but still. Thoughts?
