It,s funny how people cozy up to once once theres a wedding involved.  People who normally dont talk to you, all of a sudden want to know every detail of your palnning process.  I’ve expereinced this and don’t like it.  As much as I love weddings and my engagement, I want someone to talk to me for ME and not weddings!!

My BFF is getting married too in Feb.  She works at the hospital and one of the HOUSEKEEPERS asked her if she was invited to her wedding (and she was serious too)!!!  I couldn’t stop laughing when she told me, BFF was so mad that she even asked!  My BFF told her no, and the housekeeper was like “for real, its like that?”  I think the HOUSEKEEPER got upset!  haha…so RANDOM!!!

I found out my cousin had a 500 person wedding this spring that not only was I not invited to, I was not sent an announcement or even an emailed photo. Then my aunt, my cousin’s mother, has the gall to tell me I’m not “allowed” to get married without inviting her!

I am the bridesmaids for one of my best friend’s next weekend. And apparently, another friend of hers invited a mutual friend they know. Who my bf has met ONCE. I mean, wtf? That is why when people ask me when I am getting married I just say Feb 2010 and don’t volunteer any details!

I’ve noticed some casual friends that I was on the fence about inviting have been way more interested in the wedding and my life in general than I would have expected… and its clear they are cozying up for an invite! Too funny.

aw – I think people just like to be included. It can be super annoying though. Usually when ppl approach me about the wedding I answer their questions simply then totally change the subject about them or something non wedding related.

A lot of people know how big my FI’s family is though so I think that they understand how limited the guest list will be. I hope. It’s still a year out. So, I hope.

Oh when we first announced our engagement, I couldn’t believe how many started to cozy up to us.  Hahaha, there was one person from high school who told me I could ask them for help and even suggested caterers.  Too bad we hadn’t spoken two words to each other in years.

Allot of people ask me about detials, but that dosn’t mean they want an invite. They usually just want to be nice and ask me about it since im usually talking about it.

I’m an organizer of a social networking group. I’m good friends with a few and they will be invited. The others, I’m just acquaintances with and no they are not invited. However, all these acquaintances are now acting like my best buds and ask me some crazy wedding details. Six months ago we basically said hi when passing and now they all want to know my wedding business…it’s so weird.

I think it’s just rude that people I don’t even know are asking for wedding invites and intimate details. I mean, what the hey? lol.
