A good friend of my BF’s is getting married this summer, but I don’t know the exact date. I’m supposed to be having surgery this summer and have some flexibility on when I can book it, but need to book it soon. My Boyfriend or Best Friend will have to help me out after the surgery, since I won’t be able to do a lot of things for a few weeks after the surgery.
The wedding is out of town, so if I book my surgery just before the wedding, neither of us will be able to attend. I’m pretty sure Boyfriend or Best Friend and possibly I will be invited. (His friend e-mailed Boyfriend or Best Friend the other day to double check the spelling of my name and our address). We’re going to see thebride and groom to be this weekend.
Is there a polite way to ask them when their wedding is? I don’t need to know if we’re invited or not, but if possible I’d like to make sure that I’m well enough that at least my Boyfriend or Best Friend can attend if we’re invited/he’s invited, since the groom has been friends with my Boyfriend or Best Friend since they were kids and now work together. I know how much it would mean to my Boyfriend or Best Friend to be able to attend if he’s invited.

“How are the wedding plans going? Have you booked your date yet?” or something like that. Sounds like you are getting invited, due to checking of names/address.

There’s nothing wrong with asking…just tell them you’d like to keep that day open if they have settled on it yet.

I would ask another family member if they have set a date yet and how their plans are going. Alot of people ask that alot so it wont look like your asking for an invitation. You’ll then now a date, can book your surgery and then poliety wait to see if your invited.

So I was actually able to find the bride’s FB page and from there, their wedding website, which gave me all the details I needed. Based on the details I discovered, I will not be attending the wedding after all, even if I am invited, and Boyfriend or Best Friend probably won’t be either.

It sounds like you guys are invited. Why else would they want your address? So I think it’s totally fine to ask.

I would have your Boyfriend or Best Friend ask the groom. This kind of stuff is usually easier for guys: “Hey, when is your wedding?” “It’s June ___” “Okay, thanks.”
