- Wedding: March 2011
I’m trying to figure out how to handle this invitation situation. I will try to make a long story short.
I want to invite my best friend and her 2 children to the wedding. These kids are like family to me, the boy is 14 and the girl is 19 and a full time college student with a boyfriend she’s been with for a couple years now. Their mom is someone I’ve known since jr. high and our kids were practically raised together and are like siblings..
The issue is, my friend and the children’s father are divorced and I honestly don’t want to invite him if I don’t have to. He’s just never been a favorite person and now he has an awful insane live in girlfriend that the kids can’t stand. However, the kids are currently living with him. This is where I get confused.
The older child, if I give her her own invitation, would have a plus-one because the wedding is out of state and her boyfriend might very well offer to drive her and her brother to the wedding, obviously he’s welcome as well.
Their mom would probably fly separately.
Could I send an invite to mom plus her son even though he doesn’t live with her..? And then a separate one to the daughter since she is 19? Or do I need to invite the dad, since the 14 year old is in his custody?
