- Wedding: April 2015
This going to be long, so please bear with me:
I’m a Bridesmaid in a wedding. We have the shower and bachelorette dates. Her wedding is big and Italian, so everyone gets an invite to the shower. The older generation will not be invited to the bachelorette,
My dilemma is about in two potenial invitees, let’s call them Sharon and Norah. Norah and Sharon are both are girlfriends of groomsman. They used to be best friends since childhood, but now hate each other. Sharon treated Norah like crap for most of their friendship (some are stories I have heard, some I have witnessed) and Norah had enough and broke off the friendship. It’s a VERY long story of what eventually made Norah say enough is enough.
The Bride, is friends with Norah , but does hang out with Sharon because of Sharon’s boyfriend, as Sharon’s boyfriend is best friends with the Groom. Norah will not go places that she knows Sharon will be.
I should also mention, the bachelorette is a three day weekend away. We are renting a house, so they will be in semi close quarters.
Should I invite both girls to both the shower and the bachelorette and risk Norah not coming, should I invite only Norah to both the shaower and bachelorette and worry about Sharon’s boyfriend getting offended or invite Sharon to the shower only, but not the bachelorette.
Normally, I would be like whatever, I won’t invite Sharon, we want Norah there, except for Sharon’s boyfriend would be offended we were not including Sharon as well (I’m very good friends with Sharon’s boyfriend as well). The bride is already freaking out about drama happening between them at the wedding, which I doubt will happen, but it’s possible since Sharon is a HUGE drama queen.
