- Wedding: May 2013
An acquaintance of mine (whom I haven’t seen in quite some time) got married the week before I did… She originally sent a facebook “save the date” when she set her date (my date had already been set, STD’s sent)… As soon as I saw the invitation, I let her know that I would try, but that it was the week before our wedding, and I wasn’t quite sure what was going on yet, but my MOH had given me that as a tentative date for my bachelorette…
Now. I wanted to be at her wedding, I really did. But between my hair appointment to get my hair colored (which went WAY over time), and an appointment to pick up my dress, I simply could not make it to her 2pm wedding (my hair didn’t even get finished until 3, I was there since 8am!), of which I had already RSVP’d no, because as I thought, my bachelorette was that evening.
She sniped at me today on facebook because she had posted about putting pictures up. I was so excited to get to see how her day turned out for her, since I couldn’t be there. I’m sorry, I gave you a heads up, WELL in advance that I likely wasn’t going to be able to make it.
Am I wrong to find this kind of petty? I mean, sure, if I had RSVP’d yes and just plain not showed up, sure, I’d understand, but I’m 100% sure that if a bride had told me the same thing, I would understand!
ETA: I RSVP’D “NO” TO HER MAILED INVITATION, THE MAYBE WAS TO HER FACEBOOK STD, WHICH I CHANGED TO A NO WHEN CIRCUMSTANCES BECAME CLAIRFIED
Am I wrong? Am I crazy for thinking this?
In the end, I likely won’t get to see her photos.. Which disappoints me, but, moreover, I wish I knew what I did wrong!
