@Galang_Gyal:  …since our wedding was harder to get into than Fort Knox, we did in fact have several family members and friends that tried to kick up a fuss about the whole thing…we ignored them because honestly, it was JUST a wedding and I’m sure all of these people have hosted various events and parties that you were not included in…so they can stop it, or at least freak out without the benefit of you for an audience.

@Galang_Gyal:  I went to school with a girl, and I never liked her. We will call her Missy. She never invited me to her wedding, and it didn’t bother me becuase I didn’t like her anyway. I invited a friend from OOT to my wedding, and Missy showed up at the reception becuase she is friends with her too and wanted to talk to her. She wouldn’t come in to the reception. She called the OOT friend to come outside to talk to her because she wasn’t invited and refused to come in. My MOH was outside and Missy was SO pissed for not being invited to my wedding.She was raising a big stink in fornt of everyone.

If that is the way she handled not being invited then my reasoning was justified.

@Galang_Gyal:  Ignore them. I don’t know about you, but I’m not 5 so I don’t meet other people at their request for a “sit down talk.” It’s incredibly patronizing.

@megz06:  If we are all being honest, I would have walked outside in my gown and popped “Missy” square in the teeth. Some people need their attitudes adjusted for them.

Nope. I was very upfront and told all my friends that they were not invited to our mostly family only wedding. Of course, my situation is a bit different since I was simply the prop to my MIL’s family party with her friends.
