Ahh yes, so my guest list has been finalized for some time now… only CLOSE friends and family, about 50 in all. Then I get a wedding invite from a not-so-close-anymore friend.
Okay, sure, I could throw her on my list, but you know how it goes… I went through a list of not-so-close-anymore friends, and if I invite her and her new husband, I have to invite a total of 10 more people who also fit into the same catagory (and are all in the same circle of friends – it’s not like I can leave some out).

I say you don’t have to. I’ve been invited to a wedding of people that I didn’t invite to my wedding too. The groom is one of the volunteers that I manage, we’re not friends outside of work. But, they’re having 1350 people… so I think everyone and their dog made the cut.

Receiving an invite doesn’t mean you have to send one. You are obviously having two different weddings. She’s having a larger more inclusive wedding and you’re having a small intimate wedding. Don’t feel guilty!

I know it’s one of those awkward feeling situations. But I agree to let this sleeping dog lie.
