So my fiance and I don’t have a big social circle. Actually we don’t have one at all! It is really just two people: his friend from primary school. And my friend from high school. Each of us used to be very close with our respective friend. Over the years there are times when we see them even week, and then there are times when we see them every 3 months. It so happened that at the time we were all hanging out a lot we asked them to be our best man and Maid/Matron of Honor.
Awhile after, these people were around lots and we were happy with the choice. But since then, these people have got busy / forgotten us / hanging out with other friends and haven’t spoken to us on their own initiative for months! Of course we reach out to try and see them and when we do it is usually positive but it hurts they dont care about us as much when they are our number 1s! i know its not their problem, it is outs.
I got particularly offended because fi asked about his friend’s family’s (wife, daughter) availability for dinner. We were going to have a dinner party so that the Maid/Matron of Honor and best man could meet each other and their partners etc..Fi asked over text and his friend kept dodging the question and eventualy said he is free but his wife/young daughter aren’t free (despite being given the choice of which week etc). Now i feel like his friend’s family don’t like us or dont think we are worthwhile getting to know.
What do we do? I don’t want the wedding to be awkward.
