I will never understand this kind of behavior.

I’d private message her right away and say that it’s great to hear from her, but you just wanted   to let her know that you can’t accommodate everyone you’d like to and…

Awkward. 🙁 I’d just pretend I didn’t see it… Actually, I have no idea what I would do.

Can you delete the comment from your wall? Kind of a subtle message….

I got a couple Facebook references to people being excited about attending our wedding who we were most definitely not planning on inviting. None so specific as “can’t wait to get mine in the mail,” but still. I just ignored it and didn’t comment and as far as I know there were no problems.

Your invited friend, however, ought to know better than to leave a public note like that. Just beacuse you’re invited to a wedding doesn’t mean that you should assume that other people are.

@bythebook:  I totally agree with this post, I would send her a private message just saying that you are having a smaller wedding and although you wished you could have invited everyone, it just wasnt in the budget and maybe yall should catch up after the honeymoon…

Good luck, then maybe keep the rest of the wedding details off facebook till after the weddig 🙂

I’d probably delete it asap and if asked would just feign obliviousness to its existence. But honestly, if you haven’t even spoken in 5 years, why would you speak now to even be asked about it?

ETA: I loath self invites!

Honestly I’d probably ignore it, which wouldn’t be too awkward since her comment was on another person’s post, not your own.

I’ve been thinking about this a little more, do you think that maybe it was a sarcastic comment?? If so then I’d delete it. If you havent spoken to them in 5 years, they would have no reason whatsoever to say they were expecting an invite, which leads me to believe it might be sarcastic.. Just a thought.

@Legallyblondiebride:  I would either ignore it or send her a message saying you are sorry but she can’t come. But if you go ahead and messge her she might ask to be invited.

I would ignore it and blame it on the timeline hehehehe.

Yeah I’d just ignore it.  She’ll probably forget soon anyway if you don’t get into a discussion about it with her.
