I just received this Facebook message this morning. It's a little rambly, so I cut out the unimportant stuff.
"Serious question. We set our wedding date for March 23, 2012 (yes, quick, for health insurance and benefits purposes). It's gonna be in New Jersey, which is a hike, and it's on a Friday night, which would require folks to both a hotel room and taking time off work. I have you on the invite list, but I know it would be asking a lot to make the trip, shell out hotel and take vacation days. It's no offense to me if you can't make the trip or would just like to be home that weekend, depending on schedules. I didn't want you to feel obligated to go, but I didn't want to say 'it's too much of a hassle for people to come that far for a few hour shindig' and not give you the choice. Totally up to you. (---)'s in the bridal party, and (---)i is invited. I'm extending the same email to (---), as I don't want her to feel obligated to make the trek from afar if she doesn't want to. Choice is yours. Just get back to me when you can. Thanks "
Um. What do I say? I'm glad to be invited, and I might actually go. But, I have no idea. We're not really all that close (even though she did say "I BETTER BE INVITED" when I said I was engaged, so um, she's invited to my wedding), but I like her. We run a lot of events together, but I've never been to her house or anything.
I just don't know how to reply.
