I am in nursing school and want to invite a few of my nursing friends to my wedding. Problem is, all of them are married and some have kids, and I really don’t know their families. We’re trying to keep the numbers down, is it rude to just put their names and not their husbands? Will they get that their family is not invited and just them?

@peachrosebride: You don’t have to invite the children, but couples should not be split up.

You don’t need to invite children if you don’t want to but you should invite their husbands.

I think you can get away with not inviting their children, but you should definitely invite their husbands. Husband and wife are a social unit, and the very best time to honor that social unit is when you’re celebrating a wedding of your own! 🙂

Yes, it is very rude not to invite their husbands. They are a social unit and you should never split up a social unit. You don’t have to invite their children though.

Married couples should be invited together (and by name).

Yes, it’s very rude to invite just them without their husbands. A wedding isn’t a girls night, and you won’t be entertaining them the entire time. If you want to invite them, you should invite them with their husbands.

Easy way to see how you’d feel about this. Your Fiance gets an invitation after you get married inviting ONLY him to the wedding. How would you react?

you HAVE to invite their husbands.
i’m inviting coworkers- 2 spouses ive met briefly, 2 ive never met. oh well.
i seriously wouldn’t go to a wedding if my future husband wasn’t invited. i would be SO offended

Maybe if you brought it up to them and asked if they would be offended if they were invited to come together as co-workers, instead of couples. Chances are the husbands wouldn’t be interested anyhow. If anyone seems slighted, you can either drop them from the list, or invite them and their spouse.

@peachrosebride: You would have to invite their husband. I would also consider inviting long term significant others as well.

Couples should be invited together. You don’t have to invite their children though. Most people don’t want to attend a wedding solo.. they want to bring their husband/significant other with them.

Husbands and wives should definitely be invited together.
Don’t ask them to see their comfort level. I’m sure that not everyone would be 100% honest when asked “Would you be offended if”.

Husband & wife are a social unit and should not be split up.
This is not a “girls night” it’s a wedding. Spouses need to be included.
