Wedding guest

OK so on Saturday I'm attending the wedding of a friend from middle/high school. We haven't been close in several years but I'm touched she invited me :) My husband just started a new job and now will not be available to go with me. only other date is another one of my friends from high school. She also knew and got along with the bride, but was not invited because, probably just because they were never close and it's been years since high school. Would it be tacky to bring her? Should I ask the bride first? Problem is, the only way I have to contact her is through Facebook and I think that might just be a little weird lol. What should I do? I want to go but I don't want to attend alone :(

  • Did you receive a written invitation? Was it addressed to you and your husband, or you and a guest. If it wasn't a written delivered invite I wouldn't go at all, and if it was addressed specifically to you and your husband I would not bring a friend. I wouldn't go regardless...she's just looking for gifts and or money.

  • What did the invite say? Mr and Mrs, or You Plus 1?
    If it's Mr and Mrs, YES ask first, and actually I would just assume no and not ask.
    If it's plus one she is giving you more of a playing field. As long as you don't think there is any reason that she wouldn't like her, it should be OK.

  • Contact the bride and explain that your DH has to work that day if she wouldn;t mind you bringing a friend along for company..I'm assuming you already RSVP'd for you and a guest right? so she;s expecting that. Why would it be weird sending her a PM through FB?

  • If she thinks you are bringing a + 1 why would she mind if it's a friend from high school? I don't think she'll mind.

  • Oh no I receieved an actual invitation lol. I was OFFICIALLY invited! It was addressed just to me, with an option to bring a guest but nothing was ever in my husbands name. I just RSVPed for me plus one.

  • I just don't know if it'd be weird because I'm bringing someone she knows but who was not invited. She never had anything against the friend I want to bring or anything, they just weren't as close as I was with either one of them. Friend triangle I guess you could say lol. I just didn't want to make anything awkward on her wedding day...maybe I'm overrthinking this lol.
