I think it’s natural for some friendships to fade out as time goes on. Could you scale back your wedding plans and just have best friends and immediate family present? No sense paying a lot of $$ for people you don’t really want to attend your wedding… especially if you think they’ll flake out.

Most people have many acquaintances, and few true friends.

@Jennybenny16:  I made my best friends in college and graduate school.  I only have one friend from high school.  I can’t imagine maintaining friendships from that time in my life…I’ve changed so much.  Do you have any friends from college?  Or from work?  I think people just grow up and change, and since we don’t actively work to maintain our friendships from high school (as we might with a significant other) it’s much more difficult.

@Jennybenny16:  Awe *hugs* I know how you feel! But I agree with the PP, relationships fade and come and go. Thats a lesson i have learned this past year or so as well. It has been super hard for me…and I too had feelings about whether or not it was “me” but I learned that people change, I changed, and thats okay! In terms of advice…I would say stay true to you 🙂 like the PP also mentioned, it really is normal to have multiple aquaintances/friends with a few true friends so I would try not to feel too hurt.
