@lauren810c:

I’m sorry, but It certainly seems like you don’t need a friend like that in your life!

He’s probably embarrassed and therefore avoiding you. Lame.

Has your FI tried to contact him? He 100% owes you a huge apology, it wasn’t your fault he argued with a cousin!

But in all honesty, do you really want someone like that in your life? It might be for the better…

This is in no way a justification for his behavior, but with what you just wrote, I wonder if he realized that he wouldn’t have parents (mother/son dance for example) at his wedding. But at 30, there’s no excuses.

Maybe you should just show up and make a scene at the end of his wedding! Just kiddding 🙂

@lauren810c: I wouldn’t worry about it, if he couldn’t man up and offer an apology I personally wouldn’t want to go to the wedding or be friends with this person.

It is definitely rude.  One positive way to view this is you don’t have to waste your time going to the wedding of someone you don’t like, and you don’t have to spend money on them that you don’t want to.  You could take the money you would spend on travel and a gift and do something nice for yourselves.

We have a friend that is getting married Nov 27th and we got a STD, but no invitation yet. I was starting to worry, but found out they are moving so then I thought maybe they haven’t done them yet because they don’t have a new place yet… Or maybe I’m being optimistic.

If he is obnoxious and got in a fight with someone at your wedding, why would you even want to go to his wedding?

There is a movie that my FH loves, of course I can’t remember the name of it right now…. Ok I’ll try to make this short. A guy borrowed $20 from another guy and avoided him because he didn’t want to pay it back…. So the old guy asks the guy that loaned the money if the really liked the guy that much before he lent the money. The guy says no, he was annoying or whatever, the old guy says something about that being the best $20 he ever spent if it means the borrower will keep avoiding him and not be part of his life.

I hope that made sense, but basically if Steve is such a jerk to act like that at your wedding the whole night and then get in a fight and not say sorry, not getting invited to his wedding might mean that he promises to never bother you guys again….. It might suck now and even be hurtful to you guys, but in the end think of all the situations you are avoiding.

Congratulations on being married and getting through the wedding! 🙂
