I will never understand why random people are just dying to get invited to weddings.  They’d probably have more fun at the local bar, the movies, or a restaurant with some closer friends.

Don’t you hate that? There was a highschool friend that I haven’t talked to in over 7 years and she asked me if she could be my bridesmaid??? REALLY?????? You are not even invited! Why do you think you would be on my top list of choosing bridesmaids??? Duh! LOL… I know how you feel. Lol

I don’t know, dude, check your mail for an invitation.

That happened to me too, twice! 

We have a couple we sometimes see but Fiance doesn’t really like them so we decided not to invite them. They think we are best friends though so Fiance got a text asking when the wedding was so they could plan their summer accordingly. Fiance ignored the text since he didn’t really have an answer. Eventually we explained it was a close family and friends type of wedding (which isn’t a lie) and they were fine with it. 

We were at trivia and another friend of ours offered the team name of, “Why wasn’t I invited to your wedding?” SUPER awkward, gave him the same answer as above.

It is hard enough making a guest list without everyone and their mother inviting themselves!

I had a former coworker contact me out of the blue to catch up. As part of the converstion, I mentioned that I was getting married. Her response, “oh great, so me and my 12 year old daughter will be going to a wedding this summer.” ummmmm… no.

I think that your response was pretty uncalled for :-/

Either ignore him 100% (and probably delete him from Facebook if that’s really how you feel) or gve him the dignity if a proper response.

My Fiance is the one dealing with lots of this (lol). He had two of his old friends, who he hasnt spoken to in years called and ask when we are having it, then a few weeks later asked where their invitation was!! He just flat out told them they were not invited!

I feel like closer to the date I’m going to be dealing with this a lot 🙁

HAHAHA I wish I had the guts to say that to one dude I haven’t seen in 5 years (who by the way HATES my fiance and told me to my face that he hated him). He has already asked me 3, maybe 4 times, if he can come to the wedding even though I’ve told him multiple times that he’s not invited.

Good for you.

@MissNachoLover:  Wow. Some people! I’m snarky enough to tell ‘remind’ him how his wife hates you and you don’t want that at your special day
