Ugh.. I’m so sorry you had to deal with this. People are just soooo rude! I’ve been fairly quiet about it (wedding) on facebook with the exception of me saying. “If I could invite you all, I would, but we just won’t be able to!”

I hope you had a great wedding though! Don’t think a thing of it! I’ve gotten the “I’d better be invited” and it usually was people I haven’t talked to in YEARS. People have a lot of nerve…

Look, I don’t understand what you are upset about.

In your message you say: “we’re young and have better things to spend money on than a party”, but then you get upset when somebody tells you “someone asked if we didn’t invite them because we didn’t want to feed them (!!)”, which is btw *exactly* what you just wrote, ie that you don’t have money to spend on a party.

So what is it that you don’t like, that they said it the way it is?

I have had a few of those! Espcially from random party people that I only see maybe once a month that I don’t particularly like. They are just looking for free food and an open bar, so I ignore them.

On a side note, I got an email from a college buddy of mine and she said that I better come to her wedding or else she was hate me forever. When is her wedding date? Of course on MY wedding day! I told her I couldn’t make it because I was getting married and now she has demanded I change my date (mostly because we invited a lot of the same people, but since I sent out my invites first they all RSVPed yes to my wedding). The whole thing ruined our already dwindling friendship, but what can you do. 🙂

I totally understand what you are going through!! I have people come up to me or send me a facebook post asking to come! It’s like they are trying to make it a big scene if I do not invite them. I cannot use the excuse that it is a small wedding because our guest list is at 460….we are hoping bout 300 show up…..I’m sorry but I do not want people I dont know very well there! Has anyone found a good way to explain to people that it is rude to ask and please stop? I’m one of those people that do not say NO very often and I feel bad that people’s feelings are being hurt, but we have too many people as it is!!!
