DH and I got married back in September, and we were surprised that many of the guests we invited from Boston (where we both attended school) came to our wedding in Chicago.
Fast forward to now, one of the guests that made the trip is getting married later this month. While DH and I would love to attend, I am starting a new job the Monday after the wedding AND we are in the process of house-hunting. Not to mention, we are already committed to a 3-day wedding "event" the week before. All-in-all, it is just not the best time for us to be flying across the country for a wedding.
However, I understand that everyone has their lives to live, and this couple made the effort to be there for our day. Am I being rude by not putting forth the same effort?
