I am getting married soon and my rsvp date is quickly approaching. We have a few more spots the we initially thought, and I was wondering if it was okay to invite some people I didn’t invite originally. These are high school friends who I didn’t think would even want to attend because I have social anxiety and self confidence issues. It turns out these people actually would have loved to be invited, I just didn’t realize it. I think they would be fun to invite, and make the few other HS friends enjoy the reception more? What are your thoughts on how to approach this?

I think B listing is rude. You didnt want them originally, now that you have extra space they are seat fillers/gift givers. I dont think using social anxiety is a way ‘out’ of being rude in this case.

happilyeverafter2017 : Technically it’s not considered polite. They will know they were B-listed, so if this is likely to offend them, I wouldn’t invite. If they know they’re not your nearest and dearest but would still like to come see you and have some fun, then I would invite them and give them the option.
