Help! I’ve Been Invited to a Wedding — But I Don’t Know Why!
The Wedding Guru Judy Lewis fields this week's wedding questions.
Today: How to handle being invited to a wedding in which you barely know the couple-to-be
By Judy Lewis

Dear (reluctant) wedding guest: I understand your frustration. Perhaps this woman has a very small group of friends and family and feels your company would make the wedding somehow more pleasant? (Of course, it’d be a better idea if she held the wedding in an intimate setting and invited only her real friends and family.) Or maybe she’s simply looking for a gift? Tacky!
Anyhow, you most certainly need not send a gift. I recommend that you write a note (or a “Congratulations on Your Wedding” card) and mail it to her for her daughter. You can be classy even if they’re not!
