Is it possible that when this friend was doing the FB Invite they simply forgot to add your name to the guest list?

I think it was probably a completely innocent mistake.  I know I have missed even great friends when trying to invite people on facebook, because scrolling through all my FB “friends” can be so incredibly overwhelming.  It has also been glitchy for me before, where some of the people I KNOW I clicked didn’t end up on the invite. 

Please don’t worry about this or let it hurt you dear – I’m sure your friends want you there!

This could have VERY easily happened to me and Darling Husband since we have all those same types of friends.  Yes, your friend just made a mistake.  Have fun!

@swanks4tw: I swear I forget people everytime I make a facebook invite- I go through several times and still miss people.  It’s ridiculous!  Sounds like this must be the case!  Go and have fun!

@ItsPronounced_ABear: Sidenote- I still giggle at your username

Oh, yeah. A mistake for sure. There is no way they would have invited everyone except you. You would have found out through countless of other friends. Go and have a great NYE!

It does suck to not be invited, but it probably was an innocent mistake. I have forgotten to add people I LIVED with to some facebook guestlists, and it was a total accident.

That said, try not to take it to heart, go, and have fun. πŸ™‚

 

ETA: and if the facebook invite is open for anyone to RSVP, RSVP yourselves.

Honestly, this seems like a simple oversight/innocent mistake. I’d address it. My husband and I host a lot of parties and sometimes when things to get be last-minutey and we just shoot out an all-call e-mail, I forget people. Last year for NYE we forgot to invite one couple we like a lot and are close with . . . and they didn’t come and when I saw them a few weeks later I felt like an asshole. I wish they would’ve said something because it was mortifying to realize it after the fact and not be able to do anything about it.

As someone who throws 50+ person parties regularly, I can say that it’s absolutely a mistake. I always go through my friends list and invite everyone in town and am careful not to invite out of town people who would be like, “Uh you know I’m in Germany, right?” In doing this, I sometimes miss people. I always write, “Feel free to add anyone I missed,” which sounds like what your friend wrote, practically. Enjoy the party!

I’d say he probably forgot to add your names.  Fiance and I are throwing a party on NYE, and I completely forgot to add one of FI’s best friend (and, ironically, the guy that Fiance is probably picking to be his best man.).  Luckily, the friend called us out on it, and we all had a good laugh over it once I realized my mistake.

OP, I am a notorious accidental friend skipper on FB. Something about my eyesight on those little friend icons and equating them to the people I know in real life just dosen’t always work in my favor. Yes, I’ve been questioned and YES I felt terrible and it was an honest mistake, as it most surely is in your case. Don’t stress.
