So, two friends from college got married today. I was the only person in our group of friends not invited. I wouldn’t say we were all besties or anything, but we all went out to the bars together, hung out all the time, were involved in the same activities, made sure to see each other at homecoming, etc.
And I was the only one not invited. I was a little bummed, but okay with it. I know – weddings are expensive, you’ve got to draw the line somewhere, whatever.
But then I got a snapchat a few minutes ago from one of our friends who was at the wedding. Apparently they named all their tables after landmark locations in our college town – the town that this friend, her husband, and my college roommate and his date were sitting at was the bar we all hung out with. The snapchat was a cheery picture of them all sitting there, complete with a “Wish you were here!”.
It just stung. A lot. I mean, they’re getting invited to our wedding, and we were all invited to the married friend’s wedding last year…
I just want someone besides FI to go “dang girl, that sucks”. Because I feel soooo bummed now.
The worst part is that all of my college friends (who are in town for the wedding) keep texting me that I should go to the after party at a bar when the reception ends at 11. I want to go so I can see all my friends, but I don’t want to be “that girl”, you know?

@StL.Ashley: I would go. You don’t have to miss out on seeing your friends just because the bride was inconsiderate

AHhh I know how you feel… I was the only one of my group of college friends not invited to my best friend from college’s wedding. Yeah, I’m on the west coast and they’re all on the east coast, but I would have made the trip! It really stung to see all the happy pictures of them that they posted on facebook. It made me miss them a ton, as well as feel left out.
If the after party is unrelated to the actual wedding and in a public place, hell, I’d go! Just to get to spend time with all of them – I’m sure its uncommon for them all to be in town at the same time.

i know how you feel – FH and I weren’t invited to the wedding of his old roommate last year. She and I were also really good friends when they lived together and then we ended up working together too – she and I hung out regularly with 3 other girls who were all invited and we were not – it stings.
It sucks. Go to the afterparty, who cares. Who knows why you were left off the guest list but go see your friends!

Awe, what a total bummer! I’m sorry! I’d be sad too. But I think you should go to the after party. You’ll have a great time and trust me, you’d only be ‘that girl’ if you showed up at the reception after dinner and said ‘what? All my friends are here, it’s not like you have to feed me or anything’ lol
