I don’t think so, but depends on how close you are to these friends and their parents.  If you’ve never met the parents, then don’t even feel bad saying no!

No, you guys are not dicks at all.  Most weddings require you to pay per person, so why do you have to pay for someone you don’t know.  It was rude on his part, but people do it.

Not at all!  There are a few people I would accommodate like that, but for the most part I would say no too.  It would be dependent on their situation though.

No, you are not dicks.  I already got a request from one of FI’s friends asking if he can bring his mom to the wedding so she can check out the winery where it is being held.  Umm, it’s open to the public everyday but Thanksgiving and Christmas.  She can go on her own time.

that’s a really bizarre request! they don’t really expect you to say yes to that do they? especially if you’ve never met them? maybe tell the friend that you’re trying to keep the wedding intimate?

I think it was good of you to say no! 60 bucks is 60 bucks. You could use the for the HM!
