I feel bad that you’re dealing with that, but it is kinda funny. Sorry!

Goodness, this guy sounds kind of crazy! You definitely should call him and explain that he is NOT invited!

I should clarify – I find it funny that a random client would assume they’re invited. People can be really clueless and not see the difference between work and personal.

Um how desperate does one have to be to try to invite themselves so… viciously? It’s like you’re being pursued by a predator!!! LOL! I’m sorry you have to deal with this. I had a few “I better be invited!” or “I’m invited right?” comments but I jsust ignored them and they got the picture. This guy, um maybe you’re not so lucky. I guess keep ignoring and no invite should give him the impression come wedding day, right?

may, I would feel kind of honored – just that he holds you in such regard in his head to think he is automatically invited! What a touchy subject to deal with, though. . . .good luck! I don’t know if I would have the tact to deal with that situation gracefully.

I would call and explain just as you said that you don’t have enough room unfortunately. Instruct everyone to ignore his requests for details and if he persists inform him that even though you do not want to lose him as a client, you feel that this involvement in your personal life is uncalled for and UNPROFESSIONAL! Also let him know that you will be contacting his wife and the police if he continues on his current path. I’m sure she would be extremely unhappy to find out that her husband is planning a trip alone to go to YOUR wedding.

I feel like you’re in Jurassic Park being hunted by a raptor…. Good lord. I would just tell him that you’re having a small wedding with very close friends and family and unfortunately the venue just doesn’t have enough space for all the people you would really love to invite but you’re very flattered by his well wishes for your marriage. And if it were me, I would email him because I’m a chicken and I hate calling people to say stuff like that and feeling awkward… A person to person phone call is a lot more direct, although you won’t have physical proof of your rejection if you should ever need it! If you have a wedding website or anything I would password protect that sucker ASAP so you don’t end up with a wedding crasher!

haha, we’ve had a few people say things like, “i like weddings, hint hint” who we hadn’t dreamed of inviting but this one takes the (wedding) cake!

Personally, I wouldn’t call him but leave a well crafted email instead.  He sounds nuts and will probably whine and try to talk you into inviting him.  Some people just don’t get the message unless they see it in writing.

HA!  I just died from that picture!!  We’ve had a couple of friends of my fiance’s brother try to invite themselves (SO.  NOT.  HAPPENING.)  I just don’t understand people that think “Hey, weddings are fun, I should try and go to this one”.  We aren’t friends!  I don’t want you there!

Good luck.  He sounds like a real piece of work.
