As it's wedding night...

An ex-colleague of the DH has sent us an evening only invite. I think that's really nice, given he's never met me and he hasn't worked with the DH for a wee while.

However, here's my AIBU: is there a point sending an evening invite when the wedding is over 3 hours away? Is the groom just being polite? Surely he doesn't really expect us to come?

He's probably being polite that's nice, three hours though no way would I go x

I wouldn't go. It may not be out of politeness though. Some people think their wedding is the most important event on the earth ever.

There was almost a wedding I was going to. The bride thought it was perfectly acceptable to invite half the grooms family to the evening only, they lived 5 hours away. The were actually downgraded, understandably things kicked off!

We did this - it was sort of out of politeness. We really didn't expect people to come all that way but would have been very happy if they had (in the end nobody came a long distance just for the evening, as was expected). smile

For old work colleague that don't keep in touch with much I think is nice gesture but woulnt feel pressured into going unless I really wanted too and could afford expenses. Still need outfits hotel petrol/train gifts!

He's probably being polite, however, it isn't necessarily a given that you wouldn't go.
