She isn’t a friend at all, she gave you the DUMBEST and LAMEST excuse EVER. I mean really your gown wouldn’t fit? That is f*cking stupid.

Drop her, or better yet RSVP to the dinner and don’t show, when she inquires as to why say the hat you planned to wear wouldn’t fit in the restaurant door so you just didn’t go.

B-because her dress wouldn’t fit?! BAHAHAHA! At least I hope you got a good kneeslap out of that one. I see several others have already suggested going the “sorry, my dress won’t fit at the restaurant table” route. While it is funny, I wouldn’t do it. Be the bigger person, decline. She can’t give you a better excuse, you don’t owe her anything more.

Um, weird. I don’t even know what to say! You are definitely not overreacting (and I have no issue telling someone when they are) and I hate to say it but I agree with everyone who said she’s not a friend. I’m sorry

@orangepeanut4me:  +1 this! Sorry OP! Weddings bring out the real friends and fair weather friends. Always.

@jadealexaellis:  “Tell her you’re sorry, but you don’t think you can come to dinner because the dress you bought probably won’t fit at the table….” LOL this is amazing.

@techprincesse:  You are NOT overreacting! This is just terrible, and like you said, extremely lame. I cannot believe the nerve this person has to ask you out to dinner to chat about life. This is ridiculous. Definitely decline. This person is not a friend. Even a stranger would have more compassion and courtesy. People surprise me all the time, and I just forget about them and move on. You don’t need someone like this in your life my dear. I say cut off the friendship entirely.

Yup that is pretty bad and you are definitely not over reacting. She was being a selfish B.  I don’t think I would want someone like that in my life moving forward.

@techprincesse:  uhhhhmmm. Her dress wouldn’t fit at the table. 

What?

Wait, what?

Yeah. She isn’t a friend. Accept dinner, then don’t show. Send a text later: “Sorry I couldnt make it. My irritation with your lame excuse for skipping my wedding was too much to fit at the table.”

Or, just decline (that would be the mature way to handle it.)

@MrsNewDay:  +1 this!  My aunt is a sociopath and this sounds like something she would do…for real!

I’m sorry you’ve been so let down by this person.  I know what it’s like to invest a lot of your time and energy into someone you think is a good friend only to have them let you down time and time again.  I assure you, this will continue to happen with this woman.  I wouldn’t waste anymore effort on this “friendship.”  On a lighter note, her skirt excuse gave me a good little giggle!  What the actual eff kind of excuse is that?!

wow that IS the lamest excuse ever, but you really have to let it go. It’s just going to stress you out. I’d probably skip dinner though
