I dont have a story to share – but it’s weird that she automatically would assume that ‘family’ meant anyone in her family – not just the kids lol.

I just find it odd that she wouldn’t want to bring her own children, if I’m understanding that right.

I have a sort-of substitution story. So, my cousin is in her early 20’s and lives with her grandmother (my aunt) and grandmother’s ex-husband (they’re divorced but still get along fine and still live together). I sent two invitations: one to my aunt and her ex-husband (I put their names on separate lines since they’re not married anymore) and one to my cousin and guest, figuring my cousin would bring her long term boyfriend. Well, my aunt definitely wants to come but isn’t sure if her ex is attending, so my cousin wanted to know if she could bring her boyfriend AND her best friend, in the event that the ex-husband doesn’t come.

Uhh, no. You bring the boyfriend or the best friend, not both. You can’t just hijack someone else’s invitation to bring an additional guest. Silly people!

I had something like this happen but I found out at the actual wedding haha. I invited one of my very best guy friends since middle school without a plus one because I thought he wasn’t dating anybody and I definitly knew there wasn’t an actual girlfriend in the picture. So he emails me to ask me why he didn’t get a plus one and that he had started dating this girl and he didn’t want to go without her. So after a few weeks of seeing how my RSVP count came in I told him to bring the “girlfriend”. The day of the wedding he was one of the first people I saw when I came down the aisle. His LITTLE SISTER was standing next to him. hmm. interesting. After the ceremony he comes up to me and says that they had broken up the night before, so he brought his sister.

haha I actually didn’t mind at all. I was even happier he brought his little sister. I really like her and she was sooo excited to be at the wedding. And I agree that the night before is totally understandable!i
