My fiance has a big group of friends from growing up coming to our destination wedding. I do not have one coming! I lost touch with most friends that I grew up with. I am slightly embarassed. Does anyone else have this going on?

all of my friends who are coming are people I became friends with after college. I invited my BFF from high school (she still is my BFF) but she can’t come as its her first week of the school year.
I also lost touch with those people I grew up with – didn’t even invite them. i want the people I’m friends with there – not people I USED to be frienas with 🙂

@happyinthemountains: I moved faaaar away from the state I grew up in. So no, you’re not alone, not having anyone from childhood coming to the wedding. That’s okay though 🙂 You want people who are special to you NOW, not decades ago.

I have no friends from high school on my invite list. I’ve lost touch with them too. No big deal. You have other friends coming. Nobody should be doing an analysis of the make-up of the guests.

Do you have any friends coming? I really was not concerned at what stage of my life my friends were from. Friends are friends, no matter if they been friends since childhood or one you’ve only known a year.

Definitely! But I’m reversed… I only have friends from high school coming to our small wedding! I’ve only made one friend since college, and the only friend I made in college will be out of the country!
FI, on the other hand, has 7642634783974 friends! He had to STRUGGLE to get his friends invited list down to 20 (for our 40 person wedding! That’s not counting the family he’s inviting)

I lost touch with the majority of the people I grew up with because I moved, therefore, I had no reason to invite them to my wedding….. No big deal.

Thanks for the feedback ladies. It’s nice to have a reminder that it is not a big deal. I definitely have friends coming and they are great. I just started to self-analyze too much. haha.

The only friends I have coming from growing up are some very close family friends who are basically my second family, my high school best friend, and another close friend from high school. Every other friend who has been invited I’ve met in the last few years.

I had a horrible fallingout with high school friends right when I graduated. Long story short I developed some major medical problems and they stopped calling.
Then when I went to college I made a whole bunch of friends that you hang out with occationally but don’t really get close to.
Now I feel a little uncomfortable because I don’t have any close female friends who can be bridesmaids. I think I can relate to your feelings a bit about friends attending. Not sure what to do about it. I’m just not going to worry about it and asked a family member who’s like a sister to me to be my moh.

Dont feel bad. I have NO friends from growing up coming. I lost touch with them all. I have 3 friends from college coming and the rest co-workers. I kind of feel bad when I see people who have had best friends since grade school, but on the other hand… I look at my old friends and think I made out better.
It is, what it is.
