@aspasia475:  Incredibly fantastic advice, Aspasia!  And yes Chris Hemsworth is especially pleasing to ghe eye. With advice like that I almost wish Darling Husband would be invited to a friend’s wedding without me so I could do the same. Alas, we are in our mid 50’s and always invited to everything together.

As a 40 yr old + bride, I grew up in an era/area where everyone was invited to a wedding.  Co-workers, distant relatives, friends of parents, random dates of good friends…you get the point.  For my wedding next month, it is the same.  Please don’t think its all for the sake of gifts.  Its not.  Its wanting to throw one hell of a celebration and treating people to a great night of delicious food, fine liquor and great dancing.  We can afford to do this and I’m sure I will be meeting plenty of people for the first time that very night.  That all being said, I’m pretty surprised that an SO is not being invited of a BFF, especially since you two live together.  I personally think this is odd.  Could it have been an oversight that your SO could politely inquire about to his BFF?

Oh goodness, I didn’t see that this was posted two weeks ago!  I’d follow the advice of PPs.  Go out, have fun and take your mind off of it!!

This happened to me in August. His friend said they were only inviting +1s if the couple was engaged. My SO and I have been together for 4 years and we’ve lived together for quite some time. It really hurt my feelings, because engagement isn’t the only way a relationship is serious.

Sounds like you’ll be having more fun than you would if you were at the wedding!


Roll Tide!  😉
