As a faithful helpmebubby.com reader and a good girlfriend to one of your granddaughters (who, by the way, shares your fantastic sense of humor!), I can assure your readers that you are real! What a blessing you are to your family.
So, here's where I get to borrow you for some wise advice:
I was recently invited to a wedding of a male friend whom I was very close to. We had our falling out and attempted to renew our friendship. However, this has been very difficult and we only barely talk to each other now. The problem is that I found out, through a mutual friend, that the wedding invitations were sent out TWO WEEKS before he asked me for my mailing address.
I felt that the only reason why I received an invitation was because his "original" list of invites had already responded. My question is, should I got to this wedding knowing that I was invited as a "filler" or should I decline the invitation? I am really torn and would love to hear what you think.
Dear Filler Friend,
I can tell you from experience that one of the first nerve wracking problems in preparing for a wedding is "who shall I invite". The list goes on and on.
If you would like to resume the friendship with the person and you would like to go to the wedding and maybe meet some new friends, by all means GO. In all probability someone else can't be present and you were next to be invited. You are not crashing at all and you should remember that a gift is important whether you go or not.
So, GO and have a good time.
