My best friend is getting married in about a month. Him and his girlfriend are both from the east coast, but have lived here in Oregon for a few years now. They're going back east to have a big wedding. I would say that I am pretty good friends with his girlfriend also.
I didn't get invited. Let me be honest, I didn't want to go, nor could I afford to. I don't like weddings and I don't like traveling. And I don't know anybody else over there.
But it still bothers me a WHOLE LOT that I didn't get invited. It's my best friend's wedding. We had a bit of a fight about it, and he said it was because he knew I couldn't afford the plane ticket. I didn't like that answer but I accepted it. Shouldn't he have invited me anyway?
Come to find out, he invited several other friends that live over here. Even worse I find out the plane ticket he is talking about is only about $350. Do I have $350 laying around? No. Would I come up with it if my best friend wanted me at his wedding? Abso-fucking-lutely. These other friends he invited might be doing a little better than me financially, but they aren't rich either.
I thought he considered me his best friend also, but after this I have a lot of trouble believing that anymore. We've gone through a lot of serious shit together, we are more than just friends. I don't ever plan on having a wedding but I'd like to think if I wanted him at some big life event he would be there, without even having to ask.
Would you be upset about this? Am I over reacting? Would you get him a gift anyway? I heard there was going to be some kind of party here afterwards for the friends who didn't get to go, but I don't think I want to go. As of yet, I haven't been invited to that either....
