All-Inclusive: If You’re Not Sure Who to Include on Your Wedding Invitations, All Is Better Than None

When inviting wedding guests or adding them to invitations, always err on the side of inclusion



(page 1 of 2)

If there’s no Wedding Guru around to answer your questions, follow the rule of “inclusion” and you can’t go wrong. (This usually works for everything, whether you’re questioning to invite a guest or to give a “thank you” gift.) You can never get in trouble if you draw a wider circle or are more generous, right?

A Hudson Valley bride asks: Help! My fiancé and I are getting married. This is the third time for both of us. We were divorced, remarried, and then our spouses passed away. My fiancé’s stepdaughter is engaged and will be married two months after us. Do I list her fiancé’s name alongside hers under our children’s names?

My fiancé says yes and I say no. He says I’m listing my sons along with their wives (they have both been married for over 10 years now), so I should list his stepdaughter’s fiancé. Who’s right?”
