Are we total jagoffs?
A young man of my and my fiance's acquaintance, who is part of a larger group of friends, moved away some time ago. We were relieved, as this meant, we decided, that we could leave him off the invitation list. He's not our favorite person, and we haven't seen or heard from him in many months, now.
He recently emailed saying that a friend of ours had mentioned our wedding date and asking for some clarity so that he could make plans. Are we total jagoffs who deserve to be outcast from all good society? Should we just invite the guy and smile nicely, or can we say something like, sorry, dude, due to the size of my crazy family, we've had to limit friends (which is only partially true, as we are inviting several out of town friends, who he knows).
Unappreciative of Free Love, I Guess.
You haven't heard from him in months, and suddenly he's emailing you to get the dets on the free booze? Fuck that.
You should only ever invite your favorite people to your wedding.
