- Wedding: June 2011
I know this has been discussed a million-trillion-zillion times on the Bee, but I have to rage for a moment.
There is a girl who I went to college with- We’ll call her Debbie (as in Debbie Downer).
Debbie was the kind of girl who was always part of my group of friends, but nobody really knew why.
She was always in a bad mood, bringing everyone else down, and by the time we graduated and she moved away, some of my friends and I agreed that we weren’t that worried about her moving…. in fact, many of us hoped we would grow apart from her so we wouldn’t have to have that awkward “friends break up”.
After much discussion with Maid/Matron of Honor and my friends, we all agreed that it would be best that I not invite Debbie to the wedding. We aren’t close anymore, and even when she has been invited to thing, she almost never makes it, or says she’s going to make it and then just doesn’t show up.
Then today, Debbie starts asking me on Facebook when the wedding is. Now, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to find my wedding date- my wedding website is linked right in my Facebook profile.
So, knowing her the way I know her…. she’s trying to fish for an invite.
I hate being the bridezilla on this one, but I haven’t seen Debbie in almost 2 years, and I talk to her…. um, never. We say happy birthday and read each others Facebook updates. Facebook buddies =/= wedding guest. Sorry, Debbie.
Again, I know this has been addressed SO many times, but I just hate people who just don’t get that you can’t invite everyone you’ve ever known to a wedding! Don’t fish for an invite!
