Wow, that’s really generous of you to invite those people anyways!  I think an e-vite would be more than sufficient 🙂  Although I really wanted an engagement announcement in the paper, that’s one of the reasons why I steered clear!

Yikes! I would be really annoyed, actually, if people tried to invite themselves to our wedding. We want it super small and there’s just no way to make that happen!

I can’t imagine asking someone for an invite.

Well that was presumptuous of them. Personally, I’d be offended if I got an e-vite. If you’re considering inviting them, maybe you can print out one of the free wedding invitation templates online and mail them to the extra guests. They’ll never know that they didn’t receive one of the originals.

Eeeek. I feel like you shouldn’t invite people if they weren’t originally on the guest list. Throughout this whole thing, our guest list gets bigger and bigger and I would find it very rude for someone to assume they are invited. You obviously had listed everyone that was important to be there in the first place… you shouldn’t feel obligated to add more.

That is very generous of you and a bit rude on their part. You don’t really *invite* yourself to a wedding.

You are very nice to invite them anyway! And I hope they aren’t asking for an invite on your wall but actually writing you a private message.

Ooooh, we had some of these right when we got engaged, and still encounter them once and a while. Some of my favorites:

“Am I going to be invited to your wedding?”

and

“I BETTER be invited to your wedding!!”

Seriously? I can’t wait for these people to get married 😉

@Pom Pom: So did we! My favorites were the “Well, I can’t wait for the big day!” like they were going to be there or something! 

We had one couple that neither of us can particularly stand and the wife was one of 8 shower hostesses for one of my showers. She was one that didn’t even put much work into the shower and we had to invite her. For shame. 🙁
