How should I address wedding invitations to significant others of friends?
posted by mai to Human Relations (14 answers total)
We are in the early planning stages of a wedding. We are soon going to send save-the-date cards. I am at an age where a number of my friends are dating someone seriously. I want to invite all these people. But here is the dilemma:
If I address the invite to friend+guest, without using the guest's name, it seems impersonal. I am friends with the significant others of all my close friends and I want to make them feel welcome.
However, there is a non-zero chance that any of these friends might break up with the significant other before the wedding comes around. Will this lead to awkwardness? Am I potentially implying a greater longevity or seriousness to my friends' relationships than they would be comfortable with? Am I over thinking this?
