Had a super amazing day with my bridal party. We got both their dresses and got a killer deal. drove home in bad weather and when I finally get around to checking my phone I hav a message (on FB) from a childhood friend. We been friends since we were 4, she was my MOH in my first wedding but since then we've taken different paths. She's in her 30s lives at home with her parents, parties all the time, has spent prob 3 years in jail (in spurts). I've seen her once in 3 1/2 years. She will always matter to me but I'm at a point in my life I need to distance myself from the negative people who bring me down ya know?
So the message she sent me said "when are WE to expect our invitation to the wedding. We were at the first so its only right we be at the second". By WE she means her, her parents (live together but dad has openly has a girlfriend for the last 5+ yrs), her 3 siblings (all have had trouble with the law/drugs).
I've already told her that we are limiiting or guest list to mostly family as we want a very small affair TWICE yet she keeps asking.
May sound aweful of me but she's my friend but I prefer a distance ya know? We have history but people change, I've changed. Not to mention my FI is a cop so having people there with felony records isn't that bright of an idea to me (our BM is a cop too as are half our guests).
I was so upset over this message I called my friend crying about how I'm tired of ppl trying to invite themselves to the wedding.
I don't even know how to respond so I just haven't!
Thanks for letting me rant! I am so ready for invites to be out in the mail. Guest list is final, they are addressed, stamped and ready to go just waiting for the mailing date to get here.
