Who invites themselves to a wedding?
Posted 04 August 2008 - 12:57 AM
One of FI's friends has a new gf (like 2 months or so and he goes thru them like tissues lol). We all travelled together on Saturday to a race for my FI. I had met her once before, but only had said hi to her and went on my way. Well, first second we're alone together she tells me about a friend of hers who's FI called her up and cancelled the wedding 3 days before. Great story for a btb to hear. lol Then her bf comes over and says something about what he's planning to wear at the wedding and she says "I'm going to wear this dress... blah blah blah" I'm thinking, Where the ef are you going? I ignore it because I don't want to get into wedding talk with someone who is soooo not invited. Then, later in the night she tells me how she recently cancelled a trip so she has a credit with the airline she is going to use for Mexico and how she's so excited for my wedding.
I really don't get how people think its ok to just invite themselves. Its not a freakin vacation. ITS MY WEDDING!!! I have not sent out invites yet and I'm a pretty blunt person, so I don't forsee this being a real problem. I will tell her she's not invited and I will tell her bf the same. I have good friends that I didn't invite because we want something small and intimate. We specifically chose a certain group so that the vibe will be what we want, kwim? Its amazing how many people just don't get it. I'm not going to look back at pictures from all of our events in ten years and have to try to remember who the hell that girl is...
Ok, that's my bridezilla moment of the day!
Thanks for listening, even tho the story is a familiar one.

Once they get that message, the tissue girlfriends won't be sharing stories of what they will (or won't! Ha!) be wearing to your wedding.
Happily married since 2008

Well, dear, as you know, weddings make everyone insane and LOTS of people ASSUME they are coming to DWs, whether they know you or not.
Stick to your guns.
My cousin asked me if she could invite the friend of a friend of hers that I had NEVER met before. I said, F*CK, no!
The thing that kills me repeatedly is why anyone would assume they can invite anyone to YOUR wedding? People are truly insane.
Let her keep thinking she's invited and when the invitations go out, voila. Who knows, that guy may not even be dating her by then.
But I will add on this one thing: Sometimes the people you MOST expect to be at you wedding, don't come. And the ones you least expect, are totally there. It's pretty fun.
Still, don't feel you need to invite her out of pity or cause she decided what she is going to wear to the wedding she isn't even invited to.
