Q: I’ve received two wedding invitations for the same day–one from a college friend and one from a cousin. Which one should take precedence?
A: The decision is yours: Think about which person you’re closer to. If you choose your friend, reach out to your family immediately (and in person, if possible) to minimize hurt feelings, and try to set up another time to see the couple. But whichever invitation you decline, send a note of thanks with an explanation and be sure to RSVP promptly to both.
