Oh wow, that’s awkward! I think the reply you came up with sounds good.

We had some of those too… I would simply ignore them.

Don’t post things/write things about your planning or talk to them about things like “how dress shopping was GREAT!”

and you should be fine.

No you are not being rude.  They are.  Your reply was very tactful.  Good for you!

I just say “we’re having a smaller wedding, and family is taking up most of the guest list.  we’re sorry we can’t include everyone.”  the end.  it’s none of their business if “small” is 30 people or 300 people.  Just be polite, direct and honest and you’ll never be rude!  🙂

OMG, talk about RUDE!  I can’t believe ANYONE would do that to you!  And you think they’re your friends?  I can see why you don’t hang out with them any more.  Ms. Manners suggests a stunned cold stare, but since it’s electronic media, I would either ignore them completely or (seeing as you are so nice) reply the way your first instinct was with a polite, “NO WAY!”   Have a happy wedding!

I really don’t think its necessary to invite someone that you don’t talk to, and saying family comes first is not rude to say either. What is the worst they can do, not be your friend? Because they were not really close to you to begin with. Or say something mean about you, and tell people that they were not invited to your wedding? Its not going to kill them that they didn’t go, and they will probably revert to their old ways after the wedding is over. So I would say don’t worry about what they think, and don’t invite them! Lol
