So, I’m having a bit of a sticky situation.. Long story short, my bridesmaids have a list of who to invite for my shower and bachelorette (they are hosting both). An invite was accidentally sent to someone for the bachelorette who should have been invited only to the shower.
Do I just leave it be and hope she doesn’t come? Do I uninvite her? If I uninvite, how does one go about tactfully doing so? Since the bridesmaids sent out the invite, do I make them deal with the uninvite?
She is someone who I love to pieces, but could potentially be a downer on the whole bachelorette party for several reasons, starting with the fact that she is in her 50’s and everyone else is in their 20’s and we don’t quite see eye to eye on what a “good time” means. She seems pretty excited to be invited, so I doubt she’d just decide not to go.
I work with her daily, so if I screw this up, there could be repercussions for a long time!
I appreciate any tips!

I wouldn’t touch this one with a 10 foot pole. Leave it. She’ll probably tactfully decline anyways.

Definitely leave it. She’ll probably either decline or realize it was a mistake.

I agree with the others…totally leave it go. Hopefully she’ll get there and see that it’s not quite her cup of tea and leave early.

I agree with everyone else…. leave it.

Oh lordy. I’m not sure there is a way to univite someone tactfully. Is this someone you regularly speak to? Maybe it’ll come up in conversation? Or maybe she’ll just come for the first part of the evening and then leave you younger ladies for the craziness of the later night? Or, who knows, maybe she’ll be the life of the party!

Leave it, as PP stated, she’ll probably leave early anyway. And who knows, maybe she’ll surprise you! I know some people in their 40’s and 50’s who know how to party.

Thanks for the input! No need to worry anymore… She came into work bummed today because she forgot that someone has planned a birthday weekend out of town that same date.. score.. I’m not a b*tch! 🙂
