So, this isn't really a big issue, but I fancied a chat about it, to garnish opinion other than mine and DH's grin

DH got a wedding invitation through the other day. It's from a girl he knows from school, has seen once in the past year (by chance) and hasn't really kept in touch with, other than on facebook.

She's invited him all day to his wedding. No mention of me, at all.

Is this odd? I don't know her, we've never met, but surely you don't invite a married person to a wedding alone? Not all day.

He isn't going, for many reasons (he thinks it is weird he was even invited, thinks it's weird I wasn't, and it's a week before our baby is due) but isn't this odd? Like, they expect a married couple to fork out to attend a wedding and buy a gift (they've included a link to the gift list) but only one of them is actually going?

Or, is this totally fine and we are weird to think it is weird?

is the wedding soon ish?? Were you (or dh really) on the runners up list?

So Bridezilla has had a few cancellations and wants to get her present count bums on seats on her side of the church.

Well, we assume that, because yes it is fairly soon.

Even still, bit odd, no?

Particularly if he was totally non invited (hadn't had an evening invite) and then to become a full day guest.. odd!

perhaps they don't have very many friends and they don't actually realise you are together?

If she knows you exist then I do think that's a bit unusual. Both because it is common to invite someone with a plus one but also because your DH doesn't seem to know her very well at all. Who knows?!

JunoMacGuff Tue 18-Feb-14 19:11:36

Oh, she knows I exist!

She actually congratulated him on facebook when we annoucned my current pregnancy. So, yeah she knows about me grin

JunoMacGuff Tue 18-Feb-14 19:12:47

Glad the consensus is with us, that it is odd.

In addition, none of their other school friends (who DH is still in contact with) have been invited.

He thinks it's even more odd that they are just expecting him to entirely go alone?!

Very rude should definitely be invited.

Supercosy Tue 18-Feb-14 19:14:19

Yes, that is rather strange!

JunoMacGuff Tue 18-Feb-14 19:17:13

Good. We thought so too wink

Wonder what it is about.. well, we he won't be going anyway so it doesn't matter.

People are strange.

Panzee Tue 18-Feb-14 19:18:33

Is he being lined up to be the groom? grin

WooWooOwl Tue 18-Feb-14 19:21:40

Yeah, it's odd.

I generally think it's rude to invite people to celebrate a marriage without extending that invite to the person they are married to, but this time it does just sound odd.

sooperdooper Tue 18-Feb-14 19:21:43

Odd because it sounds like he hardly knows her, and it's last minute but I've been invited to weddings without my DH when it's been old school friends and they've invited the group of friends but not partners, gave us an excuse for a catch up and none of our partners really knew the couple

Supercosy Tue 18-Feb-14 19:23:45

Is slightly madly intriguing though isn't it?!

Hassled Tue 18-Feb-14 19:49:25

Yup, that's bloody odd.

I think your DH should go though, so he can report back on the oddness.

Littleen Tue 18-Feb-14 19:50:51

very strange! could it be they assume when inviting him that you are included? also perhaps they're inviting him just to fill up the seats :P Very odd!

JunoMacGuff Tue 18-Feb-14 20:06:22

Yes! It is intriguing... we just can't work out why...

They certainly don't seem to have invited me. Envelope addressed to him only, fine, but invitation only has his name.

He won't go, though I wish he would and report back grin

Now I am wondering if it was meant to be assumed for both of us? Surely not? He says he won't ask as he barely knows her!
