People can’t invite themselves to your wedding. I don’t speak of my wedding to people so that helps. There are always a few clueless nuts, which is what this women sounds like. Just tell her it’s for close friends and family

I don’t know why people do this!

I had a friend ask me over the phone if she was going to be a brisdemaid… I was SHOCKED. This was in 2010, so I guess people still don’t get it.

That is SO weird!  Why do people think they can do that??  Last night my friend was telling me how she and her husband are going to have a Winnebago by the time our wedding comes around, and how “James” can come and be their Dirty Delete since he doesn’t drink.  I was like, “Uh, who’s James?!?”  NO, you cannot invite some random dude I’ve never met to my wedding just so he can drive your drunk asses around!

No way!! People really are weird. That is so rude of them to invite themselves to your wedding, I’d die of shame if I overheard someone doing that!!

People never cease to amaze me.  I have seen the depths of stupidity in the human race ever since I started wedding planning.

@lolot:  LOL!!! That’s too funny!


I had a similar experience with a not very close friend whom I have seen once or twice in the last year and a half. We are having a small immediate family only ceremony and I had even mentioned that to her on facebook when she messaged me to ask about it, a few weeks later she messaged me as soon as I logged on facebook and said “Hey I need to know the wedding date and time so I can mark it on my calendar!” I was like “Uhmm, immediate family only, sorry” then she says “So I cant come?!

Hilarious…I think I would burst out laughing if some guy invited himself and then whipped out his phone in front of me. Classic!

A few people have asked me when the wedding is so they can make sure they’re free and it’s been super awkward, but I’ve explained it’s a family only event and that we’ll have to do something later to celebrate. It’s super awkward! I would never assume I was getting invited to a wedding.

I told everyone it was a family affair only. No one can be hurt- if they arn’t related they can’t come. We wanted a smaller wedding…. we already have 130 family members. If we invited friends we’d be over 200 people- and I DONT WANT THAT!
