- Wedding: September 2014 - Dallas, TX
So I just got this email and I’m curious whether I’m just being touchy or if this is uncouth. My friend is getting married in Italy. Because of this she only invited very close friends and family. We’re good friends but haven’t known each other that long, so I am not surprised nor offended I wasn’t invited.
Three days before the wedding I get an email that’s obviously a mass email that has the recepients BCC’d. It says something along the lines of that she knows not everyone can make the wedding because of the destination, but here is a link to our registry.
Ummm it wasn’t that I couldn’t make your wedding…I wasn’t invited! I don’t know, I thought it was in poor taste to send that out, and I wasn’t annoyed about not being invited until I got the email. What do you bees think?

Yes, definitely very, very tacky.

@kimmo416: So you’re not invited but still being asked to give a gift? Totally rude. I’d rethink friendship with someone like that. She shouldn’t have send that link at all, but if she really felt the need, only the wedding invitees should have received it.

Yes, that is tacky. I wouldn’t appreciate getting an email about a gift registry if I wasn’t invited to the wedding in the first place.

That’s very, very rude of her!

I try to avoid the use of the word “tacky” That is just plain rude- perhaps ignorant and unknowingly rude, but rude nevertheless.

I’m usually pretty relaxed when it comes to etiquette, but reading that made me cringe a little.

Ew. Not just the mass e-mail, but the wording implying that the recipients were actually invited, leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

You’re not invited but you can still buy us a gift? Super tacky.
