So I’ve been invited to yet another wedding. I always try my hardest to go to all weddings since I’ve only heard people say they always regret NOT going.
Well, this particular friend is getting married in March, on FI’s Bday, which is not a big deal since I thought I’ll be with him anyways… but then her invitation came in and there is not an option to include a plus one.
Also, flight tickets cost round trip per person is around $400.
Then, her wedding is on a Sunday afternoon, and there is no way for me to fly home that night, I would have to take Monday off from work.
I’m also not that close with this particular bride. I don’t know if it’s rude to ask her if I can bring a plus one?
She is also someone that I think probably will not come to my wedding since it is a DW.
So my question is, should I go to this wedding given the circumstances? I have until Feb 16th to send in the RSVP.

nahhh i’d pass on that one. especially if you aren’t particularly close with the bride. if the invitation didnt specify you get a plus one, you dont get a plus one & its rude to ask.

I would probably decline. She scheduled her wedding on a Sunday, so she will be expecting some declines anyway.

@weddingbee098: Personally, I would decline. I wouldn’t ask about a plus one either

I would decline.
I think it would be kind of rude to ask about a plus one, but then again if you’re engaged it’s kind of rude she wouldn’t invite you and your FI as a couple too.

@weddingbee098: Doesn’t seem like you’re all that excited about it with all those inconvenient details. I’d just decline.

@weddingbee098: I would probably decline that one.

@Ms_Purple: said what I was going to say.
Just because she was rude to not invite him, doesnt mean you can be rude and question it.

Honestly, if you’re engaged you should have been invited as a social unit. It would be rude of you to ask her for a plus one though :/
Considering you’d have to travel alone, without your FI, then I’d decline this one.

Nah, skip it.
There is too much to give up (not getting a date, not being with FI on his birthday, paying for a flight, taking a day off on Monday) and not enough reward (a wedding of a girl you’re not close with/who probably won’t attend your own wedding?)
I mean, I’d be tempted to take that Monday off and use that $400 to go on a mini-trip for FI’s birthday. 🙂
OR really, in my case, that $400 could go towards a new XBox for him hahaha

I would decline. I wouldn’t want to travel alone and my vacation days are pretty precious to me- I would only take one if a very close friend or family member was getting married.

@weddingbee098: I agree with everyone. I’d skip it. It’s not a big deal as long as you RSVP no.
It’s not a big deal. She probobly expects a few people to decline since it’s a Sunday afternoon wedding.

@weddingbee098: i wouldn’t go. For me to pay $400, I would need to be really close to this bride…

No! Just for the fact that it costs so much to attend is reason enough for me. SO isn’t invited either? That is icing on the cake (in terms of not attending).
