We are getting married this summer and are having a small wedding with around 40 guests. Initially, this was to be only immediate family and close friends (since the price per heard is over $200 per person!) but FH decided that he wanted to invite his friends from childhood and their wives and one of their mothers… so the list grew. I have only invited one friend, my Maid/Matron of Honor. I just don’t have a lot of close friends and I have a larger family than him–so we are even with guests.
I am having a little bit of a dilemna because I have one friend who I really can’t seem to decide if I should invite or not! We were pretty close in college and the friendship lasted for a few years after..but has since kind of waned. Whenever I get together with my best friend (my MOH) we sometimes invite her along and that is the only time I see her. Although we don’t get together often I have known her for 10 years and was invited to her wedding. I go back and forth about inviting her…mostly because I feel as if it will be awkward to see her again with my best friend and I don’t want her feelings hurt. Plus I despise her husband. I think he is sleazy and I hate the idea of having him at our wedding. She confided in us that before they had gotten engaged that he had been cheating on her for a year (meaning she demanded the ring to prove his “commitment” and he gave it her).
I can’t decide if this person qualifies as a “close friend” and am not too sure about the future of our relationship. I also wonder if I did invite her, and she came and saw that I had only invited one other friend–she may be a bit uncomfortable realizing that she is included within a very tight, intimate group.
What do you girls think?
