if you consider her a friend, why wasn’t she initially invited? don’t do anything. let her come or not come.

3 months is pretty early for an invitation. Most people send theirs 8-10 weeks out. She has no right to be offended.

Hopefully she’s offended enough not to show up 🙂  I don’t think there’s much you can do.  She’s being ridiculous and you’re not that close, so just let it be and if she comes so what?  If not, also so what?  You won’t notice her on the day of.

I am so annoyed with a somewhat similair situation.  My Sister’s best friend from Highschool insisted on an invite.  I ignored the first few requests.  Then finally gave in and invited her.  We had a limited number of people we could invite.  I hear from my sister that her friend can’t make it as they have plans that weekend.  RSVP date has come and no RSVP from her.   Thats annoying.   As for you, I would just ignore the situation.  She will either come and enjoy herself, or she won’t.

@orangezephyr:  did you invite everyone earlier? if she knows shes an afterthought it could be why

or – maybe she wasnt hinting and just wanted to know how things were going

– or maybe she does want to come,but shes just not as excited as you think she should be? i mean most people accept an invitation, but withotu jumping up or down or outwardly being super excited

You can’t really uninvite her, but you can hope she doesn’t come! Even if she does, you’ll talk to her for 2 minutes and get on with your beautiful day 🙂

There’s really nothing you can do now. This whole thing sounds a bit weird though, is she really your friend?

3 months is very early… i sent our invitations out around the 7 week mark prior to our date.
