Acquaintance-friends of ours from church are getting married in a few months. We invited them to our (out of town) wedding, they declined because he had to work that weekend.
Last time I talked to her one-on-one, I got the classic “We’re having so much trouble with the guestlist/our reception is limited to 120 people/we have tons of family we have to invite before anyone else!” talk from her. She made mention that they plan to do an open invititation (ceremony only) for the church congregation.
(Please note that I’ve been very careful not to ask whether/imply that we’d be invited, and won’t mind either way. They certainly have closer friends than us!)
The same day, in a group setting, she was describing the appetizers they’d picked for their cocktail hour, and ended with, “You guys are going to love the food at our wedding!”
So what do you think, should we expect an invitation?
(this post is just for fun. I won’t be upset if we’re not invited, haha, just found it funny because the first conversation was classic subtly-letting-someone-know-they’re-not-invited that I’ve seen here on WB so many times, and the second one totally threw me off!)

I think if she outright mentions the wedding and you both like that, you can expect an invitation. But I have goofed before, talking too much wedding stuff to people that weren’t invited so you never know!

I think you should just wait and see… it could go either way.

@arenyth: I know! I was so surprised to hear it, after the first conversation I was like, “okay, well, at least now I know not to expect it.” and then it was like, “What!? Cool, maybe we’ll get to go after all!” hahaha…
I never would have thought twice about either conversation before I planned my own wedding, which is also funny to me. 🙂
@bells: obviously that’s what it’ll come down to, I just got such a laugh out of the whole situation!

haha. I think you’re last poll choice is awesome and it’s even funnier that people picked it. I think you’ll be invited!

@mwitter80: I would NEVER ask the bride (obviously!) and thought I had to incorporate that somehow 🙂

My intital reaction would be that since she said that to you about the appetizers then I would think your invited but sometimes things slip out and people make mistakes. Wait it out. Hopefully you are though if the food is going to be as amazing as she says 🙂

Oh my god, I would NEVER say that to the (plethora of) friends we can’t invite – quite the opposite, when I talk about the guest list, I sheepishly say how small the wedding will be and feel terrible about it..I can’t imagine they would say that if they weren’t going to invite you. 🙂
