Ugh, I totally understand you on this one! People can be so crazy sometimes…and rude for that matter. The day after I got engaged a girl I know wrote on my wall “I better be in the wedding party!!!!” and when I saw the message I was like….hmmm…I wasnt even gonna ask her. I just ignored the comment and hopefully she will get the hint lol

Ugh, I feel you! I had a girl I knew in middle school say she “is singing at the wedding, right?” and another girl from the same school whose mom “says she’ll be happy to be our wedding planner!” 

Um, sorry, but no thanks! 

Weddings bring out the craziness in people, I swear. 

Are you writing back to explain the situation? That’s so awkward!

After the funeral yesterday, I realized that there were a lot of people suddenly (silently) expecting an invite. We’ll have to see how it turns out, but a lot of people were looking at me and I think trying to make me understand that they deserve an invite…

Oh gosh, starbright. And it begins, huh? I’ve gotten those to…and funny enough, I’ve only received them through Facebook. It’s as though people only have the audacity to say that to me via the Internet.

I usually don’t say much in response. When I got those comments early on, I shrugged and said we hadn’t made a guest list yet. I don’t have that excuse anymore, so I am hoping not to hear it much more.

I don’t understand—if these people hardly ever even talk to us, why would they want to come to the wedding? Even if we were pseudo-friends way back when? (Or even just acquaintances?)

oh man.  Thats the worst.  I have gotten some of those.  It’s so weird, cause even if you LIKE the person, them saying that just makes you want to scream and not invite them.

Ha, I got one of those too. I haven’t seen the girl since high school! Granted we were friends in high school but that was…well I’m not giving my age but many years ago So um, yeah no. I deflected that one, I hope more don’t appear out of the woodworks!

I never take those seriously.  I think most of the people who say that are people who don’t actually expect an invite but have nothing else to say and they say it in passing.  I had one person say they were flying in for the wedding when I had never even said they were invited.  They did help me with something though..but I was quite reluctant to let them.  Nosy people 😛

Wow! It seems like this happens a lot. That’s ridiculous. I just got engaged, and so I haven’t had to deal with this yet. Hopefully since my wedding is still far off and I don’t plan on sharing details about the wedding on Facebook, I won’t have any of those. *crosses fingers*

Oh facebook…it really brings out the best in people, doesn’t it? 😛

That is pretty crazy!  At least yours was over facebook, so maybe you can ignore it?  I got one of those to my face, from someone who is definitely not invited…awkward!
