- Wedding: August 2013
I’ve seen a lot of posts about brides feeling sad when people RSVP “no” to the wedding, also posts about not liking the “attitude” of guests who complain about the wedding being an expensive trip, too far away, etc. (When I feel like the guests are just being honest & probably not even sharing the whole weight of the inconvenience)
If I don’t want to go to a wedding, I usually make the effort to go anyway. I figure that after some time passes, the memories will stand out more than the inconvenience. Speaking from experience, though…sometimes the inconvenience stands out more than the memories.
So I’m wondering, what’s a guest to do? Am I just being selfish? My “no” is not a judgement against the couple or their relationship. Help me out of my guilt from responding “no,” when I truly don’t want to go.
