I know you feel bummed out and thats a very normal response but a good thing to keep in mind is a wedding is between two people. You and your hubby. You CHOSE to share it with those people and to hell with them if they chose not to get in on a fabulous celebration. Keep your head held high and look at that NEW HUSBAND of yours and smile because you didn’t get jipped out of anything in the end! 

 

Congratulations by the way!!! <3

I think you are right to feel hurt, that is just not cool at all!! I would be super pissed, not just hurt, that the people I considered closest to us, just decided not to show up to my wedding – you paid for them to be there, and they just didn’t show!

I think it might be time to re-evaluate the friends that left you in the lurch like that!

@CARA1978: Did you not try and track down people who didn’t RSVP to see if they were coming or not?  It definitely stinks that people didn’ts how up, but the most important thing is you’re married! I hope you still had a wonderful day!

@CARA1978:  Wow. Did you have to pay for 50 people? I have heard of one or two people not showing up but 40? That’s crazy.

Also, what is PTO? Is that why you can’t go on your honeymoon? I’m sorry that things don’t seem to be working out but at least you’re a happily married woman!

Use this as an opportunity who reevaluate your friendships with this people. Perhaps you are giving inconsiderate people more value than they are worth.

@CARA1978:  Ugh that’s so rude. Unfortunately the past can’t be changed, so try your best to have your moment to be upset then let it go and move forward. As we get older we learn who our true friends are.  It’s not always easy but it’s important to find out.

@CARA1978: First of all, CONGRATULATIONS!! 🙂 

I am sorry this happened to you & I’d feel exactly the same as you. This is beyond inconsiderate. As @BeeinBoston:  said, this is a chance to see who your friends truly are. 

HUG!

@CARA1978:  That is so horrible. I’m sorry that this had to happen to you both and on your wedding day. But like others said, I guess you can take this as a way to reevaluate your “friendships”.

@CARA1978:  I’m sorry that’s terrible.  I’d be hurt.  Honestly I don’t know if I could continue being friends with people like that.   If they RSVPed no at the beginging ok, but just not show and and then say they were celebrating their B-day.  That’s all sorts of rude and def not a friend.

Congrats though!

@CARA1978:  Wow….that’s pretty awful.  I can’t believe 40 people didn’t show!  That’s ridiculous.  That’s like the number of cancellations you’d expect if you invited, say, 200 people, but not 50.  Wow.  I’m sorry  🙁

Like others have said, at least you have good memories of everything else, and that everything went well.  Try to focus on that and on your awesome new husband.  Above all else, congratulations on being married.     🙂
