Hmmm – what would be the issue why they won’t be coming to the wedding? because they cannot get married in your state?

I really hope thats not the issue because that does not seem reasonable to me!

I don’t know your friends stance, but mine have been nothing but supportive and excited for our wedding. Have you talked to them about your wedding? You know, before sending the invite? Did you get the feeling they weren’t supportive or interested?

honestly, you’re probably reading way too much into it.  If they are your friends then I’m sure they wouldn’t begrudge you something or try to make a political point at your expense.  I think it’s just a coincidence.

I would just give them a call to find out if they’re coming or not. If they let you know that the reason is that everyone can’t get married, so they’re boycotting all weddings, then respect their decision and leave it at that. I also think you might be reading into it a little too much. They might have just gotten busy and forgot to respond. The only way to know is to ask!

I really think it must be coincicdence and you are looking to much into the situation, I say ask the friends why they aren’t coming, express how you want them there and maybe that might change their mind and yours about why they arent infact coming

I would just give them a call– "Hey, I have not yet received your RSVP and I just wanted to follow up with you. We’d love for you to be there, but if you can’t make it we’ll understand."

Hi! I would just give them a call to make sure there are no misunderstandings.  My gay friends have been as supportive as my straight ones, so it might just be a coincidence.  Good luck!

Yeah, I have to agree with the other ladies that you may be looking too much into it. You can get to bottom of it by giving them a call to see if they are attending or not. I have plenty of gay family members whom are exstatic for the wedding and already sent their responses in so I wouldn’t say that your friends are doing that unless of course that is what they have said. Just find out!

Good luck!

I’d call them. If they haven’t said anything to you yet, you’re probably just reading too much into it. =)

You might be reading too much into it.  Id give them a call and ask if they are attending.  Don’t bring up the gay point, youre jsut calling a guest to find out if theyre coming.  We have a few sets of boyfriends coming to our wedding (and one bringing his new one whom we havent met yet!  WOOHOO!) and they are so thrilled for us and so excited the are there to participate.  Just like if they were to go down that marriage path, we’d be there with bells on to celebrate with them
