Just go quietly and don’t relay how much fun it was at length or anything. It’s not really your problem!

Unfortunately that’s just a part of life. I was just invited to a former coworker’s wedding and it appears that some other coworkers who she was also close with aren’t invited–I wouldn’t dream of not being there for her because she chose for whatever reason not to invite someone else. I’m not going to go on and on about it or anything, but I’m definitely going to go and enjoy myself.

I’d go.  Not every person can get invited to every wedding; hopefully your roommate can understand that.

I wouldn’t worry. They are grown ups. Maybe they aren’t that close? Or the Bride feels like they aren’t that close

I would go but don’t make a big deal about it infront of your roommate. Who knows what the dynamics of their relationship is, maybe there’s a reason they weren’t invited. Does your roommate know you have been invited?

penguinbride89:  Yep, just go without making a big fuss about it.  Is it possible that wedding friend doesn’t realize roommate friend is staying with you?  Therefore the invite went astray?  I’m not sure I’d look into that b/c it’ll look like fishing, but just a thought.

I woulnd’t even bring it up unless your roommate does, and if she does, just say that you’re going and if she’s upset to take it up with the bride.
