    Crazy! I can't believe she had the audacity to ask you to MC and presented you with an invite that clearly makes it known that you wouldn't have been invited in the first place. I totally agree with what Jersey said. Tactfully decline to MC.

      Yeah, I would be put off if I was in your shoes. But as everyone said, just respectfully decline and be done with it.

        Im not sure i could cancel here without letting her know that i have noticed the rsvp was over a week ago.I think id tell her i wasnt comfortable in stepping up and that id laid awake worrying, wish her well with her wedding and say we must get together once the wedding festivities are over for you both,in other words bugger off theres no DW invite coming your way mrs.

          lol...I told my sister this story and she said she would have mc'ed and wrote a long, comemmorative speech on how blessed they are to be able to pull off a wedding on such short notice given that they sent her invite a mere 3 weeks before the date. I was cracking up! She's bold to ask you to do that, if she asked someone like my sister, she would be so shamed she'd wish she'd eloped!

            yeah I'm in agreement too - don't do it!

            Weddings should be about those closest to you - but not who's the most convenient.

            to be perfectly honest, I would probably be in EXACTLY the same situation as you as I would have said yes, and then regretted it after!

            you don't need her, and she'll have to do without you.

            be strong, keep it brief but make it nice and heartfelt lol just to cover yourself!

            Katie.

              I agree with everyone also. (although I love SSNM's post with the long speech about planning a wedding so quickly - priceless!). The sooner the better also, so she can find someone else (Like a DJ - I too have never seen an MC at a wedding other than the DJ).

              I hope it goes well! Good Luck!

I could be completely wrong, but I would feel like she was asking me just because she doesn't know who else to ask, and that asking me was a last resort type of thing. I wouldn't want to do it either and would probably call her and just tell her that on such short notice I unfortunately can't take on this responsibility.

                  I completely agree here! I would feel the same way. When I was reading the story, I was like, wait a minute - I'm your second choice and you didn't even want me as a guest?

                    I have to say my evil streak would crop in a bit - I'd leave her a couple of weeks and then say you're really sorry, but something important for my own DW has come up and now there's no way you can make the day. Or I'd wear soemthing *totally* inappropriate! *evil grin*
