- Wedding: May 2012
I sent some of our invites home with my mom for the siblings that still live at home, and this morning while I was over there my brother filled out his invite card.
The backstory: we’re doing case-by-case plus ones. If the relationship has been happening for a while, etc, we gave a plus one (this is for 2 cases where we haven’t met the SO, but we knew about the couple for a long time). If we’ve met the SO, we invited by name. We asked family ahead of time if they were dating anyone and included plus ones as needed based on those answers.
So this is kind of how today when down (my internal monologue in parentheses):
Bro: “what, I don’t get a plus one? I’ll just write one in.”
Me: “Well.. we’re not doing plus ones for everyone, it made our guest list way too big.”
Bro: “It’s cool, I can pay for it.”
Me: “Um.. It’s more an issue of space.” (and money, but mostly space and wanting to fill seats with people we know, vs strangers) “Are you dating someone now?”
Bro: “Yes. Well, kinda.”
Bro: “She’s still sort of with her girlfriend. But we’re kind of together. I’m working on it.” (Um… what? OK?)
Me: “Ok………. If you guys become official and we can meet her, I’m sure we can find a seat for her. I’ll check back with you closer to.”
Bro: “So can I bring anything? A couple of handles of liquor?”
…I do love my fam, though. 😉
