Their favor puts the wedding couple in an awkward place

Dear Amy: I have casual friends who offered their property to host my daughter’s wedding. It is an expansive, beautiful property.

We hesitantly but politely declined, as it would be too risky to plan the wedding without a tent, and a tent could not fit into the space.

However, I then asked if they would be willing to allow us to have the shower at their property, and again they generously offered us exclusive use – for free.

I am beyond blessed by this and I am so excited to have my daughter’s bridal shower there.

My question is this: Should this couple be invited to the wedding, as a way to thank them for their generosity?

We have been trying very hard to cut down the guest list, which is already over our limit.

They are not close friends, and they don’t know our daughter and her fiancé. However, I feel like I am not returning the generosity.

What should I do?

– Want to be Polite

Dear Polite: If you had accepted the couple’s offer to host the wedding at their property, it would have been polite for you to invite them to the wedding and reception, but there are many other ways to thank them for their generosity in providing their property for the bridal shower.

You should send them a note (including a nice photo of their property from the event) in addition to a gift –- perhaps a fruit tree they could plant, or a gift certificate to their local lawn and garden center.

Dear Amy: We have a 15-year-old daughter who is very introverted. She is happiest being home alone.

She has a group of friends she has known for about nine years, and the eight of them often do things together.

As they have grown up the other girls have branched out into sports and other time-intensive hobbies, while my daughter prefers to spend time drawing and painting.

She will go in on group activities, but usually only if her one best friend is there with her. Otherwise, she prefers to stay home.
