How to invite guests to a distant ceremony but give them an out?
by Maggie Crisalli
Our daughter is graduating Medical School in May, out of state for all of us. While we want family to feel they are welcome to witness this wonderful and "first in the family" accomplishment in person, we understand it requires travel & expenses for accommodations, etc. How can we say "don't feel obligated to come" without sounding like we don't want them there?
