Why should the bride only invite women to weddings?

DEAR ABBY: My niece is getting married this spring, which has created a dilemma for my immediate family.

Jeanne Phillips

When the save-the-date cards went out, she addressed them only to the women in the family. At first we thought it was a mistake, but now the invitations have come and they are also only for the women.

My husband and my son (her first cousin) feel neglected. My son’s wife was invited, but she does not know the bride at all.

It seems that the bride has a limited number of guests she can invite to the place. She also has a large number of friends and the groom’s family attending.
