Dear East Side Bride,
I am in a pickle.
An old high school friend told my older brother that if she was invited to our wedding then she would POSSIBLY come. She lives in England. So when I was making my guest list, I was for sure she wouldn't come because it's so far. HOWEVER, their parents are invited to the wedding because they are family friends.
I would just add her and wager that she wouldn't come after all (we don't have a ton of space for extra guests) BUT the truth is that back in the day, her sister and I were closer. The sister became an on and off heroine addict. And we haven't really been in touch since very much. So, I don't feel super cozy adding in the England sister without adding the heroine sister. Because quite frankly, I don't want a heroine addict at my wedding. And what if they make a whole family vacation of it.
Can't I just pretend my brother didn't tell me this and that the parents are the family representatives?
What do you think?
If only she were a "heroine" addict. How much more palatable that would be....
Listen, I don't get this thing where you guys invite people you don't rly WANT at your wedding because you're betting they won't make it.
Only invite the people you actually want to hang out with.
