Need some expert advice.. to invite or not?

Recommended Posts

What are the reasons you don't want her there? Is it simply because you've grown apart, or was there some big falling out? If it's the former, why not send the invite? Besides, you guys might find some new things in common at J's wedding and really want her at yours anyway. If it's the latter, though, don't bother.

Thanks for all your feedback ladies! I guess the reason why I wasn't going to invite her was because we aren't really friends - have really been for 5 years - but - that being said - I am tight with the other girls so I might as well just invite her!

 

You ladies rock!

Ditto, it's a sacred day so I say surround yourselves with the people who matter. Good luck!

If you havent spoken to her in almost 3 years is she technically your friend? Don't waste the invite. If someone whom I havent spoken to in years sends me an invitation, I would feel as if I have to go ONLY because I got an invitation and well, if its a destination wedding and I have to spend money to get there then I certainly wouldnt go. I think I would go out my way and spend money to go to a wedding if it was my close friend or family member. So dont worry I dont think you will cause problems. If your friends ask you why you didnt invite her, just tell them that you two havent talked for over 3 years.

Yes I totally agree. I purposely chose a destination wedding for that reason. You want to be around people that make you 100 percent happy!

Heck yeah! I even had people ask to be invited that I told no. Maybe that makes me evil (?) but we wanted it intimate and to be with people who have been present in our lives to know us, our stories, and how special the day was for us. We didn't want voyeurs (so to speak).

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
