My MIL makes wedding cakes for a living. She recently received an invite to a wedding reception, and stated she had already received an invitation to the actual wedding. I asked what she meant, like 2 separate invitations? And she said yes, because...
Turns out, the bride is inviting anyone and everyone to the wedding, but only a few are invited to the reception. I guess MIL made the cut since she's doing their cake.
How awkward is that conversation going to be?
"Thanks for coming!"
"We'll see you at the reception!"
"Actually... no you weren't invited to that part. Thanks again byyyyeeee"
