Soooo I will be in a wedding in a few weeks and I received my invitation to said wedding yesterday. It was addressed to Ms. PennyBlossom2311....and that was it. I know this bride is on The Knot because she says she has learned so much from reading and talking to you ladies on here. (Well, maybe she just lurked and only read certain boards becasue I think she missed the part where you should invite significant others, especially since we will be married by your wedding) It just irked me...like really irked me.
I called and said, "Hey, I saw that FI wasn't listed on the invitation. Just wanted to confirm that he is ok to come." "Oh, I couldn't think of your FI's name, so I figured I would just send it to you. Besides, you'll be too busy being in the wedding and getting ready with us to really spend time with him, but if you really want him there, you can bring him along"......... UMMMMMM WTF. Number one, I am in your wedding. You were honestly too busy to grab your phone and ask what FI's name was? (FI and I are not on FB) You also received the invitation from us with BOTH of our names printed on the front. Number two, how do you not know FI's name? We talk about him pretty often. Number three, if you want me to be included in your wedding, FI should be invited, we kind of come as a pair. I am not spending the entire day stuck up your butt. I also do not intend to sit through an entire reception without him there. Number four, what part of you thought it was ok to determine that FI would be bored or that we wouldn't spend time together? The list goes on..... I was just irked that so little thought was put into it. I wonder how other guests fared?
