I would be annoyed too, especially if she knows people there.

What is everyone’s problem with who someone brings to a wedding? If you invite a woman and her husband, yet her husband can’t make it, why can’t she bring someone else?

I mean…really. You are being unreasonable.

@SkyChick:  wow she sounds clueless.  I had read your previous thread and couldn’t believe the nerve of her! Glad your FI is stepping up and saying something – you don’t want random friends of friends at your wedding! Let us know what happens!!!

Invitations are non-transferrable, and I get your frustration: what if there was a cousin you wanted to invite that didnt make the first cut, but now that a slot has opened up you can?

@MissFemmeFatale:  You know me: I’m pretty blah about everything…but I think the frustration with this, for me, would be that I don’t know this friend, and I could be inviting someone I *do* know in that persons place that maybe I couldnt have afforded before.

@SkyChick:  Holy dear… that lady is soooo rude! I would be so upset! We’re going to a wedding in August and we are staying with relatives an hour from the place so as not to use up the room block that we thought should be saved for relatives etc. What a crazy lady!

@SkyChick:  wow, that’s bold and rude.  i have heard it all now. 

i won’t be surprised if your next update says that she can’t make it either so she gave the invite to the lady that does her nails and her 6 kids.

@MissFemmeFatale:  disagree completely.  Number one, this guest’s random plus one would be intruding on a very personal event.  Number two, that rando guest is taking up already tight space instead of someone else the B&G might actually want there.  It was gracious enough that they extended an invite to this uber rude couple in the first place-no way would I stand for her bringing some stranger to my wedding.

@badabing88:  

 

 

 

@TattedNYBride:  

 

 

 

She didn’t want to invite the guest in the first place. The groom wanted to.  If it was so “personal” she wouldn’t have made that decision to begin with.

 

 

 

I don’t think them booking a room was rude. I think they made a simple mistake without thinking, assuming they would be invited.

 

 

 

I think what the OP is doing is rude now. There is no sense in this confrontation.

@MissFemmeFatale:  It’s rude to assume you’re invited to anything, especially someone’s wedding.  And I seriously doubt it was an innocent oversight on the guest’s part to book a room before recieving an invite.  We’ve all seen here on the Bee how awful and presumptive people can be when they think they’re deserving of a wedding invite, whether they were meant to get one or not.

@TattedNYBride:  I believe in order for someone to be “rude” it has to be intentional.

The way I see it, they made this mistake they are unaware of because they were in fact invited to the wedding. He can’t go, so she wants to bring her friend. I wouldn’t attend a wedding stag even if I did know a handful of people there. It would make me uncomfortable.

Now she wants to confront the woman, who up to this point doesn’t realize any of what she has done is rude, and I feel sorry for her. It is going to do nothing but embarass her.

That is rude imo.
