I am a teacher in a high school. After work today, during a faculty meeting, a coworker came up to me in front of a room of about 30 other teachers. She exclaimed loudly, “I got your save the date in the mail this weekend!” I smiled and was completely embarrased because not everybody in that room received a save-the-date card because not everybody is invited! Another teacher overheard her and said, “I didn’t get one!” And, she wasn’t even joking. She was dead serious. She looked right at me and I didn’t know what to say. I just kind of laughed awkwardly and smiled at her. The entire room was looking at me, half knew they were invited because they got their STD’s. The other half knew they weren’t invited. Sooooo irritating. UGGGGH! Why are people soooo rude with wedding etiquette?

Ugh, I just cringed for you. So awkward. Some people just do not think before they open their mouths!

I’m a teacher too… your whole staff can’t possibly be expected to be invited to the wedding. I had a limit of how many I could invite and to the ones I couldn’t I just told them that due to limited room we are unable to invite all the people we wish we could. Always awkward though!

oh gosh. People just don’t think anymore. Hopefully people understand you can’t invite an entire school. That would be insane.

Is it better they find out now, then right before the wedding? It might be.

I’m so sorry for you.
Of course people know not everyone’s invited, she should’ve known, is she really that naive? And saying it in front of everyone, so rude.

Ooof, very awkward. You’d think that teachers with the ‘invite the whole class or send the invites to their homes not hand them out at school’ rule would know better!

Ouch! Super awkward….I specifically didn’t send Save-The-Date Cards to any coworkers even if I know I’m inviting them…just in case of THAT situation.
Sorry date twin 🙁

Oh wow, sorry that happened. Hopefully people can be grown up about it.

@mwitter80: I guess everyone should know not everyone’s invited.
IMO is good etiquette not to ask the bride or groom whether you’re invited or not (maybe ask through other people) and don’t talk about you receiving your invite with someone you’re not sure was invited (certainly not a room full of people).

Hopefullly the ones that didnt get invited will “get it” I saw one of my coworkers fb page that half the staff was invited and all i thought was, i didnt even know she was friends with them. i didnt take offence to it though.

Sorry that had to happen. SMH at your co-worker, this so could have been avoided.
@indibee: Lol I was thinking the same thing.
