I think you’re doing fine. They’re either kidding around, or they’re being presumptuous and rude.

@GamersBride:  This always blows my mind. I would never assume I was invited to a wedding. I had my dads side of the family do this to me…write things on facebook like “I hope we’re home from vacation in time for your wedding,” and I’m thinking “umm you’re not invited.” I think it’s rude on their part to assume they’re invited to such a special occasion not to mention put you in this awkward situation.

So funny.. That has happened to me a few times. We initially had co-workers say to us “oh, we’ll definitely be getting onto your gift registry earlier, so we aren’t left with all the expensive gifts”, as they had recently been invited to another wedding.

 

We hadn’t even considered inviting them before that comment!

 

Again later we had a different co-worker say to us during a conversation about a different wedding “let’s hope you guys don’t put us through that”, when talking about a particular band or wedding song. We definitely aren’t inviting that co-worker as we’re not close and only talk at work.

 

It’s an awkward thing, but people generally understand that weddings can be expensive these days, and so understand when they do not get an invite. I think the co-worker situation is very similar to when you’re together with friends, so colleagues tend to talk as if you’re all friends and as if it’s just assumed they’ll come along. A lot of the time it is just a slip of the tongue on their part though.

 

Don’t stress. I’m sure they’ll catch up on your photos via facebook anyway. 🙂

@GamersBride:  this is so hard to decide I think. I got nothing but I feel for you!
