You have to make some tough decisions when you're planning a wedding. You want to include all the important people in your life, your family and loved ones, to share in this special occasion with you. But you've also got a budget to keep. There's no easy way to get around the hard truth that you can't invite everyone and that you'll have to trim some people from the guest list.
There are graceful ways of doing this. And then there's the way one socially adroit bride broke the news: Via her Facebook-posted list of reasons why you're not invited to the wedding. And just looking through the list, I've gotta say, you probably don't want to go to this wedding.
One of the bride's Facebook friends reposted her "why your [sic] not invited" list on Reddit. We're guessing an invitation is not in the mail for this person. Congratulations!
Nice, right? I'm so glad she was concerned about no one getting "butt hurt" over the guest list. You can tell she really gives a damn. I mean, she probably could have left it at "we have only so much room at the church and the reception." But no! Why miss an opportunity to list a series of past offenses and vendettas?
Your wedding isn't just an opportunity for people to get boozed up and fed. It's also a rite of passage into adulthood. Looks like this lady is a glowing example of maturity. Not holding any grudges here. Nope!
I have to admire the way she seems to assume her wedding and reception will be the PARTY OF THE SEASON, something people will be heartbroken to miss. Especially all those presumptuous work acquaintances who were expecting to attend. What will they do with their Sunday afternoon now? Hang out with their REAL friends?!?

Bottom line is, you have your own reasons for inviting, or not inviting, certain people to your wedding. You don't have to explain anything unless someone asks. But announcing your upcoming nuptials with so much ill will is a terrible way to start your marriage.
Also, the correct spelling for the bride's usage is "you're," not "your." You're welcome!
How did you handle the awkwardness of not inviting everyone you'd like to at your wedding?
