MrsShipman:  Did you tell her you felt a little disappointed that you couldn’t be there for her big day? To see what was up?

MrsShipman:  I understand the hurt feelings but given your close relationship, I would assume VERY few if any folks were in attendance if you were not invited.

Have a girls day together, go out have lunch, do something fun together to celebrate her getting married so you get to feel like you celebrated her and she feels supported and loved.

It’ll help get over the initial feelings.

I really wouldn’t feel offended if you don’t even know if anyone else was invited. Is it possible that the wedding was just the two of them? A lot of people do that for their second go around.

Unless she invited a whole bunch of people who are not as close as you guys are or can’t provide a reason for excluding you, I wouldn’t get too shook up about it. Throw her a great party if you want to be involved!

I would wait to find out who was all there before I’d say anything about her not being part of your wedding. I can understand having hurt feelings, but don’t throw away someone who means so much to you.

I’m sorry that she is such a crappy friend but better to know this for certain rather than to have a friend that you are unsure about.

You probably need to try and meet more people so that you have a wider circle of friends and more emotional support.

MrsShipman:  my best friend of 8 years or so just completely bailed on me too.  She’s been a flake lately.  I told her three times what day my son’s birthday party was on so she could plan to attend.  She worked until 6 that day so i sent her a text at 6:20 asking if she was still coming and she said “oh crap I forgot that was today”  followed by “hey is that dog park by your house normally busy, I want to start taking my dog” and no other response back to me.  No apologies.  No attempt to still make it.  She lives ten minutes from my house.  Not thrilled by her behavior..

MrsShipman:  Thats rough. I have one really close friend. We do everything together and have gone through a lot together. I cannot imagine if she didnt invite me to her wedding or blew me off in text. I would feel so terrible since this is that one person I could always count on.

I hope things work out and that you weren’t just “bestie dumped” maybe she is just so caught in the moment she doesnt realize how you feel.
