@GreenEyedMoon: Ugh, at very least your wedding is coming up super soon so you won’t have to deal with the fallout for very long before it’s in the past??

@GreenEyedMoon: Oy! What poor luck! What an awkward, unfortunate situation. It’s nobody’s fault, but it really sucks.

That’s awkward. I would just push it out of your mind though. Nothing you could do about it, and she asked for an answer to her question (which she must have known anyway) and she got it. 

Don’t feel bad about the people you were unable to invite! It happens! Our venue only holds 108 and the Future In-Laws are trying to guilt us into inviting long lost friends. Too bad, our nearest and dearest come first!

@GreenEyedMoon: Don’t you just *love* it when people discuss your life with the world? 

/Sarcasm

People need to develop some thicker skin and stop taking things so personally. If she — or any other non-invitee — are hurt, it’s because they think they’re so awesome they should be invited to everything, all the time. If these people were being honest with themselves, they’d realize that they probably aren’t close enough to you to be invited to your wedding in the first place.

Also, it was a really unfortunate faux pas for those friends to write about your wedding in a public forum, but I think I see why they did. Obviously they know they have a good excuse for missing that party, and they want to prove they’re not just skipping out or rejecting her. They wouldn’t think of the consequences for “outing” your wedding because they won’t have to deal with them.

Almost there girl… almost there!!

First, ask your friend who posted “Probably, it’s GreenEyed’s wedding” to delete the comment. 

The way I kept drama out was by creating a “List” on Facebook of all of our 100% invited friends. I then posted to JUST them, “Just so everyone knows, we are having a very small wedding and could not invite everyone from all of the social groups. Please be discrete when discussing our wedding.”

@MrsBroccoli: I dunno, I think that asking the friend to delete the comment may cause more drama (because then people who saw it there in the first place will be even more likely to talk about it). I think this is just one of those really awkward situations. The list thing is a great idea, though.

@mckernae: agreed.

It is what it is. Budget and space constraints are a real issue, and the only thing you need to say. Maybe it might be a good idea to be proactive with this woman and send her a message apologizing and explaining the issue. If she’s offended, then so be it, that’s her problem

It’s awkward, but like PPs said it just is what it is. You don’t have a money tree to pay for that amount of guests!

…..But if you find one, share it with us, okay? 🙂
