- Wedding: July 2013
ugh. i unfortunately have a couple of these stories.
1) one of FI’s friends used to date this girl for a couple years and we would hang out with them all the time, often on double-dates, but sometimes with her roommates. we all became friends, but were never super close.. we always hung out in a group setting. FI’s friend broke up with the girl about 10 months ago, and since then we haven’t hung out with her or her roommates (because they weren’t really our friends). a few months ago, one of the ex girlfriend’s roommates posted on my facebook wall “i am soooo looking forward to your wedding- it’s my birthday weekend that weekend so it will probably be the best birthday ever! love you guys!”
um, homeboy, you were NOT on the guestlist! we bit the bullet and invited him but with no +1 (he’s single) but it was mainly to avoid awkwardness. who does that????
2) we made the mistake of doing the “we reserved ____ seats in your honor” thing on our RSVPs, and TWO of FI’s aunts have taken it upon themselves to include a random stranger instead of a family member on the line of “names attending”. in both situations, it is a family of 4 where one of the cousins will not be able to make it. instead of just the 3 of them coming, they are bringing the other cousin’s boyfriend/girlfriend. both cousins are 17. so there are like 20 people who it actually hurts my heart that i had to cut from the guest list- but two 17 year olds will be there who we don’t know and have never met. and their 17 year old “relationships” will likely be over before we get our professional photos back. it kills me!
