    I would like to host a bachelorette party for my closest girlfriend. However in the past 4 months, she has acquired a slightly obnoxious friend who has “rubbed me the wrong way” in almost every encounter. The two of them have grown very close very quickly during my unavailability (I work 6 days a week while the new friend does not work.) Should I suck it up and invite her new rude friend to the party or can I just “forget” to invite her?

    I think that if this other person is that close to the bride, and you know she’ll be invited to the wedding, it would be nice to invite her to the party. All you have to do is greet her graciously when she arrives, be gracious to her during the party, but have as little direct interaction with her as possible. Just tell yourself it’s for your friend (the bride) and it’ll last only a couple hours.

    People often bring wine to my dinner parties. I usually save it for later. However, if the guests suggests we all try it, I’d feel odd if I didn’t.
