Anyone else had the issue with people just inviting themselves on the hen do? I've had 2 acquaintances so far say I can't wait for your hen do but yet I'd never planned to invite them and they aren't people I want to invite to wedding either!
No but I just made a group chat saying who was invited and what we was doing maybe you should try this
Yeah I'm having that and I've not even started planning it yet
More the merrier on a hen do and you can invite ppl to it that you wouldn't want at the wedding ... or hide lol
Sometimes people just say things in passing without really thinking about it, don't read too much into it...they're not really inviting themselves and I'm sure they won't try and join in if they don't receive and invite. Just don't make a thing of it and have who you want...I wouldn't bring it up with them just wait and worry about it if they kick off at you. I've had colleagues and some of my fiances female friends make passing comments about the hen do even though I don't intend on having anyone there but my bridesmaids, I just shrugged it off...it's no biggie,
Yeah I have had that to, everyone I say hi to thinks they are coming 😂
this is why im going on a 4 night trip aboard so no one can invite themselves
I've had a lot of people who aren't in my bridal party, or my wedding try to plan it for me, it's pissing off my MOH haha, bugs me a bit but I'll get over it, they're not coming, end of story haha :)
Yes!!! Although I feel like I'm planning my whole wedding to suit everyone else and not thinking about what I really want and I'm fed up. Planning a wedding is supposed to be fun and it's far from it atm.
I went to Paris, they quickly pulled out of that!
Ive had this from people at my work place that i brarely speak to and never even thought about asking them but its all out of my hands now as my sister in laws have taken over the planning x
I've had random people say similar things about the wedding but not my Hen Night. I just don't take notice safe in the knowledge there not getting invited.
Then don't invite them.
Nope but I have to our wedding.... not happening lol x
It is probably a passing comment rather than them actually inviting themselves. I have people say the same but I am not too worried. Just dont tell them too many details until afterwards x
Don't tell them any details of dates, times etc. If they don't know anything then they can't just show up.
I think its nice that people want to be involved. If you dont want them there than that's fine but I would agree with the other comments that they are just saying it in passing.
I would just tell those invited the date time and location and keep it a need to know x
Have a separate one for acquaintances/colleagues x
By hen do do you mean night out in local town or an actual hen do . My hen do is 230 per head at other end of country so no one can just invite themselves . Whereas if it's a hen night I wouldn't mind anyone else tagging along can't stop people from going out xx
I am going to Dublin so only people who really want to go will be there. Also having a night out in London the week before so that family and friends from Australia can come
