We are 27 days before the wedding and people are still trying to invite themselves. I personally feel if you didn’t get a invite by now then this means you problem ain’t invited.
Why ask? I had a person say to me yesterday, “how is the planning going? When is the wedding again?” I say “good and the wedding date”. Then she says, “I would need something to know where its going to be at? As a matter of fact just go ahead and email the invite information”. I was speechless, who does this? She was not invited to the wedding. We volunteer together the first Saturday of the month, so in all I see her like 3 times a month. SMH
We had a few other people try to invite themselves in the beginning but I’m guessing the got the hunt. One guy even asked us when was the wedding date and then took out his phone to say the date on his calender. Then saying, this date is open for me.

People can’t invite themselves to your wedding. I don’t speak of my wedding to people so that helps. There are always a few clueless nuts, which is what this women sounds like. Just tell her it’s for close friends and family

@TwoCityBride: I agree, I told my FI I was going to tell her the same thing.

I don’t know why people do this!
I had a friend ask me over the phone if she was going to be a brisdemaid… I was SHOCKED. This was in 2010, so I guess people still don’t get it.

That is SO weird! Why do people think they can do that?? Last night my friend was telling me how she and her husband are going to have a Winnebago by the time our wedding comes around, and how “James” can come and be their DD since he doesn’t drink. I was like, “Uh, who’s James?!?” NO, you cannot invite some random dude I’ve never met to my wedding just so he can drive your drunk asses around!

No way!! People really are weird. That is so rude of them to invite themselves to your wedding, I’d die of shame if I overheard someone doing that!!

People never cease to amaze me. I have seen the depths of stupidity in the human race ever since I started wedding planning.

@lolot: LOL!!! That’s too funny!
I had a similar experience with a not very close friend whom I have seen once or twice in the last year and a half. We are having a small immediate family only ceremony and I had even mentioned that to her on facebook when she messaged me to ask about it, a few weeks later she messaged me as soon as I logged on facebook and said “Hey I need to know the wedding date and time so I can mark it on my calendar!” I was like “Uhmm, immediate family only, sorry” then she says “So I cant come?! ”

You got to love people. A for effort but I agree, I would feel so funny about inviting myself to someone wedding let along ask if I am in it. My wedding is 26 days away and my guest list is cut off. I put on the RSVP that the deadline is Sept 20 because I needed to give the venue our final head count. Thats a lie because our finally head count is due 3 days before the wedding. Ha, ha.

Hilarious…I think I would burst out laughing if some guy invited himself and then whipped out his phone in front of me. Classic!

A few people have asked me when the wedding is so they can make sure they’re free and it’s been super awkward, but I’ve explained it’s a family only event and that we’ll have to do something later to celebrate. It’s super awkward! I would never assume I was getting invited to a wedding.

I told everyone it was a family affair only. No one can be hurt- if they arn’t related they can’t come. We wanted a smaller wedding…. we already have 130 family members. If we invited friends we’d be over 200 people- and I DONT WANT THAT!
