All you need to do is be upfront and honest about each of the situations. Deciding which people to invite and who doesn’t get to go is always a touchy subject. Sometimes you have to accept that some people may or may not get offended.

With FH’s friend, you can kindly tell them the invitation was only extended to him and his wife and that you cannot afford to accomodate their teenagers and brother b/c your budget is limited. The teenagers are old enough to take care of themselves for a night and it should not be a big deal if they get left home. I hardly ever got invited my parents friend’s weddings, my brother and I just hung out at home and took care of ourselves.

Same goes for the friend. It would be really awkward for a bunch of girls to share a hotel room with a guy that they don’t really know. Simply let her know that the rooms were intended to be ‘girls only” and if he wants to come, he can book his own room and possibly bring a friend to hang out with him to keep him company.
