OMG I am SO bad with words I probably would have been like “Oh, I didn’t send it to you?” and then she would have had to be one. I am so awkward in those situations. Everyone thinks I’m this tough New Yorker but when it comes to stuff like that I never want to offend anyone haha

Yeah people do this!

One of my good friends (who I of course wanted in the wedding anyway) blurted out “you better make me a bridesmaid!” before I formally asked, but thats why I love her, she just blurts out whats on her mind 🙂

heh – one of my first posts on the Bee was about how my friend called me immediately after i got engaged (saw it on FB) and the first thing she said? “OMG I’M YOUR Maid/Matron of Honor, RIGHT???” it took like 8 months but it’s finally resolved (and no, she’s not in the bridal party)!

I had a friend do that to me. Apparently, after being my roommate for a year, she felt like she was ‘entitled’ to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man. She actually asked me why I asked other people and not her. A very akaward conversation followed.

Our friends just had a bit of the reverse happen – the groom informally told his friends over dinner who the groomsmen were going to be – one of his best friends missed that part of the conversation, so his feelings have been hurt for almost 6 months now.  It’s all sorted out now, since the groom asked him if he’d gotten his tux, and the guy was like, “What do you mean?  I’m in the wedding?”

Meanwhile, the bride has sent out formal invitations to all her brisedmaids, asking them if they would be able to be in the wedding party.  She was flabbergahsted at the thought of the guy not knowing (I told her boys do it differently).

Sorry for the awkwardness – anytime there’s a big event, someone is going to get their own ideas about what’s going on.  If they can’t adapt, that’s kinda their problem and not yours.
