i hate your wedding.
fucking shite wedding then, how're you supposed to know who is single then?
I probably wouldn't go
Registry offices aren't that big and nor are some of the cooler venues.
Presumably you're invited because you're a close friend so you have other close friends there?
If you're just a sort of peripheral friend then yes it is pretty bad.
we're friends from uni / lived together for 4+ years - still i'd expect the other half to be invited too. hmph.
You're probably right but with all a wedding involves you could be looking at a lot per head. Maybe they don't like you? Maybe they only got the country house by stomping grapes:
i spose it's not *that* big a deal but i would have expected a plusone invite given that we're good friends and that the other half isn't just some random 2 week bf.
but I've never been to a wedding with a plus one, and I've always had a good time with my friends. It would suck if you only knew the couple getting married though.
although, when my mate got married last year, he didnt invite one of the girls boyfriends, on the basis that he had never met him. i agreed.
if i had a girl id be a bit annoyed. However have you considered they might just not like ur partner?
The only person I'd have known there is my ex. And she just happens to be playing an integral role in the ceremony. Didn't much fancy going and having to make conversation at my table.
"Do you know the groom or the bride then?"
"I was the first person to finger her"
I'd have also been the only southerner there
You know me so well
I was lucky to get invited to the wedding of the only one of my friends to get married.
He was from our school, so Catholic and she was a protestant. Anyway I used to give loads of banter about "our struggle" and "I hope you go to seperate churches". Yeah, apparently she didn't find it as funny as I did. At the bit at the reception where you say how lovely they look as you go through to dinner she full on blanked me.
Also he'd told all his belter mates from uni he went to some scumbag school (true) so they thought we were thieves and thickos. So it gave me plenty of oppotunities for pasting
"I was at uni with Anthony, we were at Warwick, you might have heard of it?" [/smug]
"No, at LSE we only knew the names of the other top 5 unis" sit down pal is it
im gutted im not bridesmaid!! there goes that pact we made when we were 8!!!! GUTTED
She spelt RAUSADIOAUSDSI'S name wrong too! dick
Sometimes difficult decisions have to be made when organising these things. A line has to be drawn somewhere otherwise these things get out of control. I doubt it's anything personal. A bit of a bugger admittedly but sometimes it happens.
They probably just hate her blue-nosed bastard of a boyfriend
I can understand your frustration.
We tried to be consistent with who we invited in terms of plus ones.
this should keep your partner happy.
I'm a party guy.
In fairness I only met the bloke once and I probably insulted him
You ate a pie, you drank guinness, you didn't insult me. You're a winner.
It so incredibly disrespectful that I decided there and then I liked him
I have to say when I ordered a Pukka pie, I wasn't expecting a plate, knife and fork. Harrow Borough=classy
I didn't go.
It was a good friend of mine from halls who'd proposed to his girlfriend at Christmas of her year abroad. Once they were engaged (keeping in mind she was a "no sex before marriage" girl) they figured "why wait" (had it from the horse's mouth that the fact that once they were married they could have sex, so why delay the wedding?) and set the date for last August. The groom knows Tom quite well, yet when I said could he go, the response was "no" because of costs. Fair enough, but to be honest the costs of me going were going to mount up (transport to/from Essex, finding a hotel/Travelinn or somewhere to stay, etc) and I just didn't fancy it. Wedding was a few days after we scattered my nan's ashes so I claimed by some unlucky chance the funeral clashed with his wedding. Not quite the truth, not quite a lie.
which, being mega organised i've already pretty much booked and it's £80. and my other friends will be staying there too. so i'm not going to go off and stay on my own somewhere.
for the wedding I'm going to. And as I have lots of small groups of friends it's always going to be a case of upsetting one friend if I ask the other. Of course all this would be solved if the guy I like would fucking give in and go out with me.
I don't think it would bother me.
because sadpunk might have slept with someone?
Seriously though, I can handle being at a wedding without my partner, same as I can handle going to the pub without her or washing my shins in the bath on my own.
