so my co-worker is getting married a couple of months after me. i gave her an invite to my wedding along with the rest of a group of my co-workers (there is a group of us that go out for lunch every week). i was NOT expecting an invitation in return since i believe my invitation does not obligate her to send me one to her wedding. especially since mine is a destination wedding, i kinda knew no one from work would come, but i wanted to invite them anyway.
so the other day, my co-worker catches me and my good friend at work and says “i want to invite you both to bachelorette party, but i can’t afford to invite you to the wedding”. and we said ok, we understand. In my head, i knew this was an etiquette breach, but i honestly didn’t care….but then she dug her grave when she said “ya, i feel bad, i just can’t invite everyone from work, so i am only inviting the people i hang out with outside of work” and she proceeds to name off everyone in our little gang at work, except for me this other co-worker/friend of mine!! LOL. we were just laughing after because she was so clueless at how she sounded.

@dynamic_duo: With that comment, I’d be happy that I wouldn’t have to attend her wedding or get her a present.

Oh my gosh that is so bad! You really just have to laugh. I used to have a friend like that, she would invite me out somewhere and then give me a list of all the people she invited before me who couldn’t make. Ummm thanks??
Just laugh it off, and don’t go the bachelorette party unless you feel like it!

yiiiiikes!!!! That’s both awkward and hilarious at the same time. You could make it up and buy her something totally embarassing for her bachelorette party… 🙂
Honestly, I would go to have a great time at the bachelorette because those are FUN, and then relax and congratulate her when she comes back. At least you don’t have to spend a Saturday at her wedding and buy her a gift.
