Just yesterday I was on Facebook and noticed that a girl I attended college with had married over the weekend, so I was browsing through her pictures. One of her FB friends had posted on one of the pictures, “Guess my invitataion was lost in the mail. Hope you enjoyed your day!” Rudeness supreme. Just when I was thinking that this would never happen to me, an ex-coworker posted on my facebook: “What is the wedding date? My invitation better be coming, girlie!” She is not invited to my wedding; in fact, we were never close enough for me to even consider inviting her. I have already addressed my wedding invitations, and there are no extras. (I say this, because I would totally be the type to cave and send her an invite.) Surely she won’t say anything once I don’t send her an invite…I hope. I would NEVER do this to someone. How totally awkward. I commented back, “It is July 15, still seems far away!” I am so hoping that she forgets and doesn’t bring it up again…ARG! I am guessing this has happened to other people, and I would love to know how you handled it. Thanks in advance for the advice, ladies! 🙂

First of all, I can’t believe that girl would write that, how rude!
I wouldn’t answer any FB invites. By giving her the date, you implied she was invited.

i’ve gotten a few comments like that and whether the person is invited or not, i just don’t answer.

Okay, so I will be deleting my comment…should I delete hers?

Well she probably saw your comment so deleting it would make it more awkward. I guess just leave it and make sure nothing gets posted about the wedding that could allow people to start chatter.
Hope things cool down and everyone gets on with things and forgets !

i guess you could….but then she might ask why it was deleted and you’ll have to figure out how to respond to that. awkward. hahah

OMG the same shit is happening to me!! My response is “well unfortunately we both have very large familes and the venue cant hold too many people so we are limiting to just family and close friends” I posted that after someone made a similar comment thinking that I might be able to reduce self invites then I got a personal message from another aquaintance ” I cant believe that she tried to invite her self dont worry I already took off work” well I wasn’t planning to invite that one either LOL

I have had this happened to me via private messages and chats on FB. I usually tell ppl our wedding will be an intimate affair and majority family. The one person I did not think would even dared to ask me for an invite to the wedding was my ex (the last ex before FI) and has asked several times for details and for an invite. He already knows he isn’t invited but all I can say is “really? you thought you were going to be invited??”.

I agree with the PP that the best thing to do is just not to answer.
I sent my STDs out in November and shortly after asked few friends for their addresses for Christmas cards. One girl I know from college recently posted on my FB that she never got her STD and that her invitation “better be in the mail.” Awkard! I didn’t respond and didn’t delete the comment either.
