That’s weird!

No, you don’t have to send a gift.

I haven’t received one like that, but as I was addressing some of the STDs/invitations, I was thinking of some of FI’s coworker’s wives opening the invites and thinking, “Who the heck is this?!” I never really thought about that before since I’ve always only received invitations from people I know, but I guess once you’re married, you can get mail from people only your husband knows through work!

Oh yeah!

I recieved an invite from a college “friend”. We actually were in the same dorm, shared mutual friends, but really weren’t close. I liked her just fine, but I wouldn’t have called us close. We also hadn’t kept in touch to actually talk since then, minus the fact we’re facebook friends. Actually I was only at that college one year before transferring out.

However, another college friend who lived in the same suite as me ended up dating my brother well after we all graduated college (they’re now engaged). She was actually close to the aformentioned friend, and was invited to the wedding as well. I’m almost positive I only got the invite because she (and so essentially my brother) were invited. I figured she felt bad that my brother (who she didn’t even know) was invited but not me. I couldn’t go, but I remember thinking it was strange.
