I would imagine in your case, they didn 8767 t invite your boyfriend because they hadn 8767 t met him that always seemed to me like a pretty common and legit criteria for couples who want/need to keep their weddings small.
I was invited to a wedding for a high school friend, and I was oddly surprised that she 8767 d invited my fiance (let alone me we hadn 8767 t talked in years). If she just wanted me there, and didn 8767 t give me a plus, it wouldn 8767 t have occurred to me to be offended. i was less surprised when i realized she was having a wedding with 855 people. I actually think it would have been better if there were no SOs because everyone spent their time talking to their SOs and not talking about 8775 old times 8776 because half the table would 8767 ve been left out. so instead it was just a table full of couples only talking to each other but that 8767 s a horse of a different color.
Why not? That beautiful 55 person wedding could easily have been the 75 people most important to the couple, and those 75 people 8767 s spouses. It could have been the 95 people most important to the couple, some of who come as pairs or are single, and 65 spouses/partners etc.
And although I am happy for that recent wave of women who have declared they are content to be single forever, it's just honestly not what I want for myself. Because I know myself. I just won't be. I will always feel like something is missing.
I have a friend who didn 8767 t invite any significant others she wasn 8767 t also friends with, including spouses, for people who lived in the same city as the wedding. Cost was a big issue for her and I was thrilled she could afford to invite friends at all. I was perfectly fine leaving my husband at home, because she was my friend, not his, and I had plenty of friends also attending the wedding. Situations vary and I think it 8767 s harsh to be angry at friends for not inviting significant others no matter their reason.
An old friend invited me to her wedding at the time, I had been living with my now-husband for over 7 years. She had met my boyfriend several times. But the invitation was addressed to 8775 Stephanie and Guest. 8776 True story. I was incredibly hurt by it.
In many ways, they are experiencing sensory overload and their hormones are intensifying that overload. If you want to try to introduce manners at that age, be my guest! You will have much more success teaching etiquette for teens at an earlier age.
If you 8767 re not 655% on wanting Save-the-Dates, you might try our strategy if the timing works out for you. We were married in May, and the previous December sent all of our holiday cards to our wedding guest list (more or less) and included for all invited guest a 8775 Can 8767 t wait to see you May 66! 8776 Two birds, one stone or rather, two purposes, one normal stamp.
I definitely agree with you on the fun that adding new people can bring. I understand completely that not everyone has the budget to do it or would even enjoy it but it fits us perfectly. We find ourselves guessing at who people might bring, especially acquaintances who we 8767 ve met but aren 8767 t close enough to for us to have invited them ourselves. ( 8775 Ooo, I wonder if she 8767 ll bring her friend Mike. He 8767 s so fun at a party! 8776 or 8775 If Scott is his guest, he won 8767 t have to worry about finding a designated driver! Plus Scott might hit it off with your sister. Hmm 8776 )
Just like with Solange Knowles, I 8767 m pretty sure etiquette is way different when you 8767 re famous. Which I am not.
