We’ve had a few people who feel entitled to have to be invited to our wedding. It’s uncomfortable to have to explain how this all works to them, and the reasons involved, but what are you gonna do? We expected to have to deal with this, but it still sucks :/

You aren’t obligated to invite anyone to your wedding regardless of whether or not they invited you to theirs. All you need to say is “We’re just having a small wedding and didn’t want a big affair.” Small, of course, being however many guests you are having. 😉

I am waiting for this to happen to me. We are having a small 80 person wedding with immediate family ( no first cousins) and very close friends.

You don’t owe anyone an invite but it certainly does put a nail in any old relationships you may have….which can be bad or good, depending on the relationship. Sounds like in this case, it was good. 😉

That’s bizarre…and no, there’s no rule that says you must invite someone to your wedding if you were invited to theirs! Think how weird that would be…you invite your dad’s boss to be polite, so then if he got married later he would have to invite his employee’s daughter?  That wouldn’t make the slightest bit of sense!

okay… really childish of them. Especially with not talking with you for 5 and 7 years!

Sorry to hear this! Sounds like these are not people you want in your life or at your wedding.

Oh no, that really is not something fun to have to go through!

I have had a few colleagues assume (incorrectly) that they will be invited to my wedding, after I got engaged after only working there for two weeks. One of my colleagues directly asked me the other day if she would be invited, and I countered by asking if she knew my fiance’s name, which she didn’t! Even though I get on really well with my colleagues, and would love to have them there, it just isn’t a practical option.

That’s crazy and downright rude.  You don’t have to invite anyone. I can’t believe they had the nerve to say that!
