The bride suggests no strangers at the marriage

Dear Overlook MANNERS: Ah, weddings. My daughter is receiving married in a couple of months, and I am on the lookout ahead to a beautiful occasion.

The bride and groom adamantly insisted on inviting only individuals they understood, not every single relation. No “plus one” invites had been sent.

My sister-in-regulation approached the bride and then me, blithely suggesting she would provide her son’s ex-wife alongside to stand-in for her son, who is not likely to attend.

She appears to assume marriage ceremony invites are transferrable. She essentially wishes somebody there to are likely to her 7-yr-old granddaughter, who was invited by name on her father’s invitation.
