I feel snubbed and a bit embarassed that my closest friend didn't invite me to her daughters wedding.
I thought it was just a fairly quiet affair but now she said they had quite a few family friends to it and I feel a bit silly that maybe I am thinking of her as a great family friend whereas she has a lot of other people she invited ahead of me.
I know I'm being silly but its made me feel a bit stupid.

Was she paying for the wedding or something? I'd probably be pretty irritated if my mum started inviting all her mates to my wedding tbh. Perhaps the other family friends were specifically friends of the bride, whose wedding it is...?

Was going to say the same thing, are you friend of the bride?

The "family friends" at my wedding were peeople who I had a lot to do with rather than just my parents.

The invitation may come in the name of the bride's mother (and today it often doesn't) but it is the couple who usually pick the guests.

but it is her daughters wedding, and so, her daughter can invite who she wants to be perfectly frank.

when I got married, my MIL-to-be invited 20 of her friends, and I had 5!!!

bloody unfair if you ask me, and it still ranklesangry (yeah yeah, I know it was my DH's wedding too, but he had 2 of his own friend, the rest on his side were his parents friends)

weddings, oooh.......

sorry, I know it would be lovely for you to go, but ultimately, it is down to the bride to choose who to invite. ((within reason of course, I mean, this could also be one of those weddings where she invites everyone over the age of 5, damning all those with children of ages above and below that to hell, or similarwink)

yes maybe.

I think the bride arranged a lot of it and it musthave been mainly her guest list.

But some of the other friends are more recent than me and not of the bride,more the parents and that is what surprised me.

Its not so much I really expected to be invited,more surprised when I heard who else was invited .
