Hi, I’m a guest at a wedding this summer & very confused.
B & I have been friends for over ten years & have been very close, although at times strained. We were bffs when I met my long term boyfriend / partner / love of my life, and shes known him for years. However, she’s never liked him. I think she always was a bit resentful that he took up some of my time & attention that previously went to her. She found a boyfriend, and things seemed to pass.
Fast forward 6 years later, I am still with the same guy, we’ve lived together for 7 years & clearly, hes not going anywhere. She’s now marrying her bf, and is being really weird about the wedding. She asked me if he’d be coming and I said ‘if he’s invited, yes”. She later asked me again if he’d be coming and I said “sure”. She didnt reply.
So last week I got my invitation, addressed to me only. I was very upset, as was my partner, and he said he’ll definitely not go as she clearly didnt invite him. I filled out the card as “Guests – 1”, meaning just myself. After I dropped it in the mailbox, I wondered… does Guest mean just me… or would Guest imply my boyfriend?
So, 1) does not having his name on the invite imply that he’s not invited?
2) Me writing my name & “Guest 1″… does that mean just me or did I accidentally invite my boyfriend?
3) am i crazy for being upset & confused by this?
