Wow! You should definitely decline the invitation! That bride sure has nerve. I mean that is totally rude and poor etiquette.

Edit: Decline, with a letter giving her a piece of your mind!

I agree that you should just decline.  I “might” be able to understand if the other friend’s gf wasn’t invited.  But not really.  She attended your wedding.  I think she’s insulting your marriage.

Another vote for decline. I’ve been trying to think of a possible devil’s advocate scenario on this one, and I can’t come up with anything. I’m sorry your dealing with this 🙁

I’m just happy to hear that your husband stood up for you and declined! That’s absolutely insensitive. Weddings are celebrations of marriages-it’s ridiculous that you as his wife were not invited. I get really tired of hearing people say “well, our wedding is just too small for you to invite your SO…” Yes, not every SO has to be invited. But when you start excluding people’s spouses, you’ve gone too far!

She is being ridiculous.  Your husband has every right to decline and I hope he does 🙂

DECLINE. That’s terribly rude and selfish. When we did our guest list, if one of our guests was married, their husband/wife was AUTOMATICALLY invited.

Wow. She’s got some nerve!!! If that happened to us, we’d end the friendship right then and there.

Awww, that really sucks!  I would not go to an out-of-state wedding without my FI– that’s pretty ridiculous.

That is SO rude!  I can’t believe she’s actually upset with your husband over this!

It’s weird about this girl… but on the other hand I’m totally impressed with your husband! He sounds like a good guy. 🙂

I second Mitla’s opinion about your husband- good for him for telling her how he feels, and doing so tactfully and diplomatically.  I’m sure at some point, probably after she is married, she’ll realize how rude she is being, and probably kick herself over it.  In the meantime, you have every right to be tiffed, and I hope she doesn’t continue to be rude to you over this.
