I can’t imagine sending out an email declining before even being INVITED. Wow.

I’d just do her a favor and not invite her…

ugh… sounds like one of those friendships that’s on the way out.  She sounds like a piece of work, and like she will be work. I would probably make the choice for her and not since she’s not really a wedding person….. i’d make her not a guest 😀

I’m confused about how this email even came to be… you emailed a different friend and then this chick emailed you a response, unsolicited, explaining why she likely wouldn’t go, even though you hadn’t asked her to go and weren’t even talking to her about the wedding?

What a twit. 

I’d just write back and say something like ‘i don’t recall sending you an invite just yet, but thanks for letting me know early and I just won’t mail you one” or something like that.

@Tincangirl:  I’m sorry, but the fact that it was unsolicited and from a third party makes this so much more obnoxious than if it had been the friend you floated the date by in the first place. And its obnoxious enough to begin with.

I am sooooo alone in this. But for some reason this wouldn’t bug me. I see how it’s a little obnoxious but I wouldn’t think of her as a B.  What is wrong with me?!?! lol. 

I’d just be like  “Ok, cool story. A simple rsvp card would have worked too. I’ll miss ya but I completely understand. No worries. 🙂 “

And then if she changed her mind after finding out you were paying for it all

I’d be like “Sorry!” and tell her a really cool story to go with it.

@Tincangirl:  Wow. She sounds, ummm… Bitter, to say the least. You didn’t even formally invite her yet!

@MrsPhilly:  Oh, definitely read that wrong I thought it was the same friend who explained herself.

That was uncalled for. Forget what I said OP, LOL ! I thought your friend was trying to have a genuine conversation about her feelings after you sent HER the date settings. Not that she decided to tell you her opinion when not sollicited.

Wow, presumptious much? You hadn’t even mentioned your wedding date to her and she still felt the need to seek you out telling you that if she WERE invited she would totally not be coming and, if she did, she wouldn’t care about it at all and would be miserable (I know that’s not exactly what she said, but that’s surely what it reads like to me). What a weird thing to do.

That’s just stupid.  You go to weddings to be there for and celebrate with people you care about.  I’m not religious and don’t care about church stuff, but I went to my nephews baptism because it was important to my sister.  I was there for her, not me.  And that’s what weddings are too.

She could have done without why she doesn’t think weddings are important; that was rude. The comment of, “Weddings aren’t our idea of fun” is not a big deal, in my opinion. She’s right. Weddings AREN’T a lot of fun for some people. That’s just the way it is. She should have just left it at that, or not said anything at all.

I wouldn’t be bothered by this. Just don’t send her an invite since you already know she won’t come.

Usually people at least wait until they are invited to decline. How strange.
