- Wedding: May 2012
I am less than a month away from my wedding! Yippee! Everything is almost all wrapped up, save for a few last minute things. My problem is that a facebook friend, who is acually the brother of one of my college friends (who is not invited either, btw) is dropping HEAVY hints about wanting to come to the wedding. I have seen him maybe three times in real life (at birthday parties and such for my college friend). I graduated from college two years ago and I haven’t seen him in that time.
He does not get out a whole lot because of some issues that he has. (Just saying that to explain his fixation on someone he hasn’t seen that many times. I’m pretty sure he has a crush on me as well.) I don’t mean to sound callous, but I HATE being put on the spot for anything. It is my well-known number one pet peeve.
If I invite him, it will mean inviting his mother and sister (my college friend), because I know both of them as well too. They are great people, but I guess I just feel sort of funny asking people that I haven’t seen in two years. (Or talked to, other than on facebook, honestly).
With the kind of wedding we are having (no sit down dinner), a few extra people are not really a big deal. But they really won’t know anyone there other than me and my sister (they have never met my fiance).
I don’t mean to sound callous, but I know that if he comes, he’ll expect me to spend most of the reception talking to him because he won’t know anyone else.
We are really just having a family and friends wedding. Our extended family (aunts, uncles, and first cousins), and our friends. (And it goes without saying parents, grandparents, siblings, etc.)
I’m not sure how to answer his requests. He tried to chat with me the other night on facebook and I just had to ignore him because I knew that was what he wanted.
I really could use some opinions about this! I really hope that I don’t sound mean…I just HATE being put on the spot and do not know how to handle this!
