.. Now you’re making me want to have a Die Hard marathon of my own since it’s all cold and rainy outside lol

That is really sudden and unexpected. I want to give the couple the benefit of the doubt and wonder if there’s anything going on, in their lives or with their families, that prompted them to have a wedding so suddenly.

Ok your update just made me face palm, and now the FB invite just seems all the more impersonal.

That’s funny – I see no issue with the FB invite thing, I’d assume it was more casual, but it wouldn’t bug me one bit. I think wedding invitations should be shifted to online anyway – save money, save paper, save time, save effort for both the couple AND the guests… all around superior. Facebook isn’t the classiest method to do this, but if the event isn’t formal I can’t imagine why it’d be a problem. 

I would be a little miffed at the short notice, though I can only imagine that someone sending invitations out on that short notice expects a lot of declines and won’t take it personally.

@MissCalifornia:  Yeah, I would be mad too! As I said in my previous post… if you’re going to pull something like this, that’s fine, but you CAN’T seriously get mad when people say “uhhh I can’t fly out on that short notice no matter how much I like you.” How self-centered.

@MissCalifornia:  I was going to say to send him the links for flight prices, but honestly, he’s so unreasonable in this that it wouldn’t make a difference.  Give your SO a hug for me, and tell him he tried and he needs to let it go.  And go privately ream the friend out when you have a chance for making your SO feel bad.

@MissCalifornia:  I am guessing this will calm down in a bit. keep your SO from saying anything he will regret. This friend is probably pretty impulsive anyway if he’s the type to book a wedding 3 weeks from now, right? Tempers are running high right now, the worst thing that could happen would be to say things in the heat of the moment. I’m sure there will be others who also cannot attend, once Impulsive Friend sees that, he may apologize.
