would you be offended?
Maybe I’m being extra sensitive about this, but we just went to a wedding. My husband and the groom know each other through a mutual friend. And we all tend to get together every few months, 4 couples all together. My husband and the mutual friend are close friends/work together. And we kind of entered this “group of friends” within the last couple of years. Soooo what I’m saying is that we were likely invited out of niceties. We are very aware of this fact and did not expect to be invited, and would not care if werent. I promise you, this isn’t a “I feel left out” kind of drama 😂. We were invited. We went, it was fun.. my husband is a little tipsy and extra gregarious so as we leave, and out of respect for letting them share their special day with us, he gets the bride to come off the dance floor and says we would like to take a photo with them before we leave. We walk halfway to the outdoor area where the groom is, realize he’s taking other group photos, and it’s hectic, and the bride pretends to look for the groom and is telling her bridesmaid something and it’s obvious she’s talking about us. The bridesmaid whisks her away and even an elderly family member tries to deflect the situation and ask us “are you looking for someone?.... you guys are a handsome couple”. The latter part is to show you how she was trying hard to distract us from the fact that the bride literAlly left us hanging. I know my husband probably shouldn’t have asked for a photo at that time as the festivities were clearly getting fun (we had to get home before baby’s bedtime), and they have a huge family, but I’m thinking, not even 1 photo? Am I being extra sensitive? I’ve been in situations like this before, I think I’ve even on the receiving end of her actions but NEVER acted like that at my own wedding (or any social setting where I’m the focus lol)! Am I just but hurt from being on the receiving end or am I having legitimate feelings like “WTF”? Granted, this couple is a little weird about some things, as I’ve heard... the group went on a camping trip together one time (we were not present) and the couple slept in until 1pm (and did not tell anyone) and then was UPSET that the others went to the lake without them, as they had planned.
