Yuck, getting that kind of reaction would be so disheartening! I think you hit the nail on the head about why – because they are the first ones reacting to the invite. I bet the people who you are closer to & who you really want to be there will have a much more positive reaction.

Ugh! Rude. Even if you don’t know if you can come to a wedding, you don’t say that RIGHT after someone hands you an invitation to their wedding. How impolite! Something like “how exciting!” or “thank you!” is usually the response. But if they don’t want to come, then that is less money out of your pocket and more room for people who are thrilled to be at your wedding!

I had a similar scenario happen. My cousin received my save-the-date, instead of excited she declined.

But the twist is that she posted all over facebook sending out an “event” for her daughters graduation (which is on the same day as my wedding). Then invited everyone accept me obviously and started calling people to make sure they were going to her daughters graduation instead of my wedding… can you say immature?

But the point is, its a WEDDING–get excited people.

I got the same reaction from my co-workers. It made me sad because I would really like them to be there. Now I feel kinda unliked 🙁

I wouldn’t worry about it.  It might not be about you.  Maybe their husbands have no social etiquette and don’t want to bring them around work people JK.  It could be that they are uncomfortable with the location or maybe they just have a lot going on.  Is it far away?
