Does anyone have this experience- I’m now trying to sending out all my wedding invites and several people I wanted to invite are not responding to muttiple email or facebook contacting asking for their addresses. In fact I notice that when I announced my engagement over a year ago I did receive some congratulations but then very cold in terms of any type of corresponding. Even when I just sent out Xmas cards without even mentioning of the wedding.
I guess they’re expecting me to take the hint and not even send them an invite. I think it’s really rude. Some are out of towners and I did always preface that I wanted to invite them but understood if they couldn’t make it. Why do they not want to keep in touch.
Certain friends/family who would every now and then post on our wall or reply or wish happy birthday etc, just general politeness have stopped. It’s weird. Am I the only one???

Wow, I haven’t had that happen. That is very strange as well as rude. I hope you are not close with these people. Did you try calling them? I know a lot of my friends barely check facebook anymore. And I know I personally don’t check my email as often anymore because it has gotten so spammy.

Not extremely close but close enough to have wanted them to come to the wedding and close ebough that I wouldn’t want them be offended for not being invited-= guess the later isn’t the case based on the behaviour-lol.
Most of these peopl we had kept in touch through email so it’s weird that now they’re not getting the message. I feel like I’ve asked enough times that if I call I’m acting like a stalker or something.

I’ve had some do that too. It’s weird. I have a girl right now in my bridal party that hasn’t returned my phone calls, texts for messages on FB and I don’t know why. I’m really hoping she comes tomorrow to my bridal shower and will be really hurt if she doesn’t come. But my best friend doesn’t think she’s going to come.
People are so weird when it comes to weddings and I just don’t get it! Hope all works out for you.

@yearns4god: Oh no, I’m sorry about that. I hope she does come but I’m sure you will have a wonderful shower no matter what. But that’s really not cool of her to do.
Looking at the situation from the most optimisitc stnadpoint is that the avoidance is because they feel guilty to tell you no or they can’t do it. But their actions make me feel that they dont even care enough to keep in touch and maintain a friendship outside of the wedding

That’s weird, it’s sad but I guess they do not want to come. Look at it in a positive way – now you have more room to invite people who want to be there and celebrate with you.
