I’m so curious to know the outcome of this! I can’t believe your name wouldn’t be on the invitations after you’ve all gone out together. The whole situations is just so strange!

This seems like a really bitchy thing to do. Fiance is his best man?! Has anything been said to indicate that you were not invited?

Not putting your name on both envelopes makes it definitely look like she has intentionally not invited you. That being said Fiance should definitely bring it up with the groom. Chances are he doesnt know anything about this.

I’d love to hear how this turns out! Terrible situation to be in. I’ve had something similar happen between my long-time bf and his godsister. I used to be very close friends with his godsister, and now i’m left out of everything their family does. It really hurts my feelings, so I can only imagine how you must feel as a fiancee!

@HockeyGirl:  We’re all dying to know.  Did he talk to the groom over the weekend?  Did you RSVP for 1?  Don’t leave us hanging like this!!

If it were me, I’d call the groom myself and ask him.

I’m sorry; the bride knew exactly what she was doing.  Hopefully she’ll also learn what a _____ she is as well.

I’m torn about this situation.  It definitely could have been intentional and I can see how as the groom’s Bridesmaid or Best Man anyone helping to address envelopes should have known….on the flip side I went to a wedding of my FI’s coworkers and while talking to a fellow coworker/guest we asked where his new wife was.  He said her name wasn’t on the invite and since they had just been through a wedding themselves didn’t want to make waves.  When the bride later asked where this guest’s wife was there was an awkward, “Well, she wasn’t on the invite” conversation that resulted in genuiune shock and embarassment from the bride.  Turns out the bride & groom had both thought the other one was getting the correct spelling of their mutual coworkers new wife and in an oversight neither did and she accidently got left off when someone helped address their invites.  Here’s hoping it’s just an oversight!  Hope to get an update soon!

Hello? Outcome? We’d like to meet your acquaintance. 

I am in the camp that you were not invited. I am curious, based on your statement of not being crazy about her, if she knows? And like you, for the sake of important relationships, just smiles and goes on? 

Technically, she doesn’t have to invite you. I notice your Fiance didn’t get a “plus 1″… That was intentional, because naturally he would bring you. It sounds like some very hard conversation needs to be had. I’m not implying you are playing any games but it seems she’s in a similiar league. 

I admire your excellent taste in etiquette (it appears to have disappeared these days) and sincerely wish you the best outcome. You don’t deserve this and I’m sorry. Mistakes happen once. After that its intentional. 

 

Hugs.

I really hope OP comes back with an update – I’m so curious as to whether this was a mistake and how it panned out!
