I have a small wedding party (2 girls-one guy) they dont know each other (one lives out of state) I dont have a lot of female friends (ive only lived here for 18 months and am a student) neither of my Bridesmaid or Best Man have done anything except get decorations, even though i sent my Maid/Matron of Honor an invite list for her to send invites over a month ago (party is supposed to be next thursday) Im thinking of doing an evite and email those i wanted to, but im afraid it seems selfish to send an evite, and asking each person to bring $ for brides festivities and potential transportation…should i just say forget it and not plan anything? or should i step over my Bridesmaid or Best Man and send one out?

The bride does not send out invitations since she is the guest of honor. That is the responsibility of the bridesmaids.

is the party already planned? what would the guests need to pay for besides transportation?
I pretty much planned mine after a bunch of Bridesmaid or Best Man drama went down & told everyone (thru text, emails & hearsay) when and where it was going to be (san francisco which is 2 hours away) and it turned out only 2 people decided to come. (well one lives in SF.. anyway) it was totally fine with me because I was done with the drama & decided to just do things my own way & it turned out to be a lot of fun with just the 2 girls.

You probably should not be the one to send out invitations to ask people to pay for you.

If you’re worried about her getting it done, I say do most of the leg work for her. Draft up the e-mail yourself, and remind her of the invite list you gave her (or send it to her again). Then you can have her do the actual inviting, but also make sure it gets done! Just an idea.

I say send out your own invites but dont expect or ask people to pay for you. I dont think it is fair for you to miss out on a party because you cant send out your own invites.
