@GeorgiaTeacup: I assume that this happened to you today?

I’ve had this happen so often I can’t count. I actually got threatened for an invite the other night while we were out at dinner.

I love the e-mails, “I noticed the STD on so and so’s fridge, mine didn’t get delivered.” Uhh shame. 

 

 

@Mrs.tobe: How do you get threatened for an invite?

@napabridekelsey: I know right? Wow.

@Pupperoni:It went something like “I better get an invite in the mail! I mean it. I’m really serious. I’ll come looking for you if I don’t get one!”

I mean really? WHO DOES THAT?

We had this happen to us by a bunch of people at a work-related thing. I’m sure they thought they were being funny but it sure put us in an awkward position. One guy kept asking, and in the end we felt obliged to invite him…and his family…

OK, what the bejeezes is in the water this month.  I got asked by a toothless man trying to get a beer out of me if he was coming to the wedding because he used to mooch drinks of the FHs dad 20 years ago.  Um yah, you keep waiting for that invite whoever you are.

My Aunt, who has not spoken to me in 10 years emailed me to please tell her the date of the wedding…….I was not and I am still not planning to invite her. What should I do, just ignore the email??? 🙂 any ideas!

@WillowH:  I would send her an email back with the “truth”.  Sorry there is Very Limited space at our location and we are keeping the guest list small.  We wish that we could invite everyone we love, unfortunatly we are unable to extend you an invitation.  It hurts me that you will not be joining us and it really hurts that I am having to tell you this.  I love you and am very sorry.

Ohhh man. I am preparing myself for plenty of rude questions like this over easter. Next weekend Fiance and I are visiting the island where our family vacation homes are, and we are not inviting a lot of people from the village who I am sure expect to be invited.

I mean, some of these people who have weddings there have 700-1000 person guestlists! We are keeping it down to 320. Sigh. I have a set response “we are going to invite as many as we can.”

I ran into a former colleague a few weeks ago and she noticed my ring.  She’s so clueless she didn’t know if my engagement ring meant I was married or not.  *eye roll*

 

The other night, she sent me a text message (I’m in my 30s and only really text my fiance and closest friends) that she can’t wait to see my dress. 

 

We are not in touch in any way, but she seems to think she’s invited to our wedding.  Awesome.
