This came up on my facebook news feed this morning:
“[person’s name] You know, it really makes you wonder why the people you grew up with don’t invite you to their wedding.”
Now I know she isn’t referring to me because her and I weren’t really good friends, but it flat out pissed me off. I really wanted to comment and be like, “Maybe because weddings are a celebration that you want to share with your closest friends and family. Maybe because weddings are freaking expensive! Obviously she has never planned a wedding so she doesn’t get it but it sure ticked me off lol.

The title says it all!!
This has happened to me a LOT during our wedding planning!! My uncle plays violin or cello (w/e) for weddings and when I asked for their address (for STD’s) he went on to say how he may not make it because he plays on saturdays for weddings, and he may be booked, but if we haven’t gotten a player yet, he is about $100 for a wedding.
And my cousin was talking about how I need to give my aunt a call about my 2nd cousin being flower girl (I hadn’t even decided who it was yet), and she’s like She already know’s alex is the flower girl, but wants to discuss the specifics. I was like WTF?!?!?
Let me make my own decisions!!!!
grrr. rant over.

I think you’re right these are people that have never planned (or at least didn’t pay for) a wedding. I don’t understand this mentality of feeling ENTITLED to an invitation. I would never expect to be invited to someone’s wedding based on the fact we were friends once upon a time, especially if we haven’t been in touch for years. I actually resent being invited to weddings of people that I am not remotely close to (I’m not talking about family) … I kinda feel like it’s a gift grab or something.
Yeah, people are eejits. 🙂

@M.Ruder: My favorite part was where your uncle informed you of his rates and availability…. I mean seriously??

@shaydenise: IKR?!?! Like, I’m not even having a live player!! And then he went on to say again that he may not be able to make it.
It’s so frustrating!! I knew that would happen but didn’t expect how often it IS happening!
Has anything like that happened to you bees?

In planning this wedding…I have never wanted to slap someone so bad before in my life. Of course, because of legal ramifications, I chose the civil route.

Ahh, I would be SO pissed off if I read something like that! I guess if someone hasn’t been through the wedding planning process, they don’t understand how much it would cost to include all these people. There are plenty of people that I grew up with and was good friends with during the course of middle and high school, but they’re not invited. We’re not close, and I only want my closest friends there. Some people will be upset, but that’s fine. Whatevs.
Some people just need a big ol’ smack to the side of the head.
