- Wedding: November 2013
FH and I are having a fairly intimate wedding! If you haven’t met both of us a number of times, you are not invited (I’m even excluding quite a few cousins!) And this works well for just about everyone! Except for one of my good friends from college. She has been living with her boyfriend for the past year and they have been together for two but because they live out of state we have never met.
My intention is to invite him anyway! I’ve heard a lot about him and he seems like a very nice (if not shy) person and if they are in a close relationship I see no reason not to!
Then I realized that almost everyone coming to the wedding will know each other, except than my college friend and her SO. I didn’t think it was that big a deal, there is no way I’m not inviting him! And he would have his girlfriend with him so it wouldn’t be too bad!
But then my friend pointed out I may want to warn them, that he may not want to come if he is the shy personality described and it’s such a small wedding. That worried me a bit and every family member and friend I’ve brought it up to has said the same thing.
But I don’t want to do this! I feel that it will come across as me not wanting him there! No matter how I word it in my head it still comes across as if I’m uninviting him…
So what do you think bees, I need a 3rd party perspective! Or maybe help with wording…?
