We already RSVP’d to the first one before we got the second invite. I’m a big stickler to RSVPing for people as early as possible. The first is earlier in the day so we may be able to go to it and then swing by the second just to congratulate them (that one will be a late night party anyway…and it’s actually just the reception they’re having a really intimate small wedding that Friday night).
Even if we don’t make the second…the first is the one I would choose anyway. The first is a really good long time friends little brother (her family was practically my second family growing up) and the second is an old co-worker’s wedding that we get along really well but I just don’t see him very often anymore.
Sorry OP…not trying to thread jack!

Thanks to everyone who responded nicely and let me know that I’m probably taking it too personally. As most of us know on the waiting board, it’s easy to become overly sensitive about every little thing sometimes, when youre focused on such a huge life event.
Thanks for being really insensitive about a topic that a lot of people struggle with. I’m happy for you that you’ve never been through feeling like youre being overlooked

your most welcome.
Most people don’t expect everyone in their lives to have esp and avoid topics they aren’t aware of being sensitive issues to certain people.

They might even be trying to be polite and kind to you, actually. A lot of waiting bees get pointed comments from their SO’s family members that make them feel even worse about thei situation. There is nothing in the situation to suggest that they were trying to be hurtful to you – sounds like the conversation is a topic that affects their lives and is a pretty normal thing to talk about. I am sorry you feel upset but I think you are interpreting the situation far more personally than is probably the case. I’m glad you have made progress with your SO and wish you both the best!
