- Wedding: August 2011
My fiance and I are planning a very small wedding, and we’ve been as discreet as possible about the details, not wanting to hurt anyone’s feelings who we were unable to invite.
I have a couple of friends who, while we keep in touch somewhat on social networking sites, these are not people who are terribly close friends. Unfortunately, we just weren’t able to include them in our wedding plans. However, they occassionally ask me for details about the wedding. I’ve been evasive so far, but I’m worried that they will be more hurt if they don’t find out about the wedding until after it happens.
Am I handling this right? Do I try to broach the subject, and explain that since they’re far away/it’s a very small, mostly family wedding/we were doing it on short notice that I’m sad we couldn’t include them? If they keep asking about the wedding directly, do I come clean at some point?
In the age of social media, it’s inevitable that once the wedding happens, photos will crop up. And I’m not sure that’s the best way to let these folks find out about the wedding. One girl in particular I’m worried about, as I’m getting the strong sense that she’s expecting an invitation.
