Weirdest Wedding Invite?

Okay, in need of some feedback here, and I’m inquiring for a friend.

Sometimes I gauge social situations incorrectly and want a frame of normalcy here. Let me also explain that I enjoy weddings, think they are beautiful, and love that they are celebrations of two soulmates unifying their undying love for another.

With that, what happens if a friend invited you to her friend’s wedding, but you aren’t on that level of friendship, nor have you met the friend’s friend? What is the intent behind such an invite? And yes, there’s more to the story that I can’t fully divulge, but nonetheless, it’s still an interesting predicament.

Through this situation, I try to consider viewing things from the other perspective. I try to ask myself the questions that help me better understand the decision-making without judgement. I don’t always win the mental battle, but it doesn’t stop me from trying to make the best choice, take the right next step, or be considerate of the other person involved.

In the end, I suppose I could have advised my friend to consider it as a nice gesture and send a gift, as doing the right thing is always the best thing.

  1. Are you coming as your friend’s “plus 1”? Maybe she is not looking forward to the wedding and wants someone to keep her company. This happened to me once, and I had a great time with my friend. I didn’t know the bride or groom, but that was OK. My friend’s husband couldn’t go, and she didn’t want to go alone. I didn’t feel obliged to take a gift as my friend was already doing that.
