Bee, she posted a frown under you having the flu. She probably thinks you left her reception because you were sick.

it’s much more likely that this was a miscommunication than it is that she is such a nasty person that she didn’t invite you after relying on your help.

Maybe I missed something, but if you didn’t receive an invitation to the reception, how did you know you were “technically” invited to the ceremony? Were there two separate invitations for each part and you only received the one for the ceremony? I would assume that if someone was so sure they were invited to the ceremony, helping with it and performing in it i.e. it didn’t require an invitation to know, they would also know they were invited to the reception and would also not require an invitation to know that.

kristin36890 :  she mentioned she was one of the singers in the ceremony so she had to be there anyway.

@socalgirl1689 That’s my point. Maybe the bride thought “oh she knows she’s invited because she’s singing. I don’t need to give her an invitation”.

I really, really, want to hear the OP update us on this. She doesn’t say that this friend is a selfish lousy person, which someone would have to be, not to want someone at her reception who did all OP did for her.

The friend only did a sad face emoji, because she thinks the OP was feeling sick and that is why she didn’t come to the reception. Which just muddies the waters even more.
