Wedding Wednesday: Bachelorette etiquette
My best friend and matron of honor Amy texted me last week to inquire about a bachelorette outing on Friday night before the wedding. I don’t want some big drunk thing (I am post-collegiate, grown-up Stephanie these days) with tiaras or strippers; I’d really like to have a low-key night of bowling at a cool place downtown, get home fairly early, and feel well rested for the wedding.
Amy asked who I wanted to invite, and I’ve been mulling it over for a few days. I obviously want to invite my friends and sorority sisters who are coming from out of town and my local friends (who will probably decline to come because there’s a horse show the day of the wedding). Here’s what I want to know, though: who do I have to invite? Johnny’s sister? My sole female cousin? Johnny’s second cousin who lives in Tulsa and might get kind of weird if she’s excluded?
I don’t want anyone’s feelings to be hurt, but I also don’t want to spend the evening with people I don’t really like. What do y’all think? Just invite who I genuinely want to spend time with or try to keep the peace?
