    Not sure from your post- has he asked you for an invitation? If so, just say you’re flattered that he would want to attend, but you’re having a small, intimate reception.

    I don’t know if I’m missing something – but what gives you the idea that he is going to ask about being invited to your wedding?

    Uh, sorry. But it’s simply not in my budget to invite any more people.

    I would just ignore it.  If he manages to catch you on chat or something just tell him that you’re having a small personal wedding for close friends and family.

    I think everyone goes through this when they’re planning – people assuming they’re invited.

    We had an obnoxious neighbor say he was really excited to get his invitation in the mail.  I told him if he could tell me the name of my  husband (then fiance),that he could get an invitation. Needless to say he didn’t get an invitation and I managed to embarass the hell out of him!

    I had one like that (an old college dorm mate). I was just politely vaque with the details and she never mentioned it again. Whew!

    @KateByDesign:  that’s awesome!

    @tnbellebee:  You need to nip it in the bud now- don’t let him think he’s coming to the wedding.

    I’m big on the principle of things, so I’d ignore it, too. People who weasel their way into getting invited to weddings drive me nuts!

    Oh my gosh, no.  Do not let this person bully/manipulate you into inviting him!

    No! Don’t feel pressured to invite him. At the same time, don’t be posting a lot about the wedding on Facebook if he can see it. I personally think it’s rude when people gush constantly about their upcoming weddings on FB when most people aren’t invited. That’s not to say you don’t express your excitement/frustration at times, but just be aware of the feelings of those who aren’t invited.

    Definitely shut that down. You are already uncomfortable and you haven’t even invited him! No thanks!
