Has anyone ever made an unexpected friend and had to invite them after the wedding invites have all been sent out? OR fallen out with someone or lost contact with someone and had to take them off the guest list after the invites were sent?

I have been bumping into people recently who I have known for years but don't see them often . And luckily we r just having buffet for day guests then just party/reception in evening so I am inviting them to that...i have told them to come for 7.30 so hoping they will eat before they come....

My best friend and I fell out last year for 10 months, I didn't receive an invite to her wedding as we weren't talking, we made up a few weeks before her wedding and she gave me an invite for the evening as the day had no more spaces left
Slightly different but I was just greatful she wanted me there, lots of people will understand that weddings can be a tricky numbers game, especially for the day time part, the evenings tend to be a bit more flexible xx

I'm having this!! I'm wondering if I've missed anyone because our groups are so small. I'm hoping everything will be OK but who knows!! All the best for you 🤞🤞

I had a friend who decided a festival was more important than my wedding.... who told me via Facebook messenger....! Needless to say she didn't come and I haven't spoken to her since. We've been married 3 years in September. Xx

I have a couple of people I gave a save the date to who I have fallen out with so won't be sending them an invitation. And on the flip side people I have made friends with more recently that I will be inviting

I am expecting this might happen with my wedding being a few years away yet x

We had this, we ended up having space as some guests couldn't attend. So this meant we could invite a couple who we've become very close friends with, It didn't feel right not having them there!

We re-wrote our gueast list a million times before sending out the invites, we sent our invites 5 months before (was meant to be 6 bit we had problems with the invites) we had one more look through before sending them out making final changes. Unfortunately it does happen, you make new friends and fall out with people, just keep looking and adjusting your guest list as you go. Ours changed loads before the final list. Good luck.

Me and one my best friends fell out a couple of months ago. I get married in 3 weeks so have already sent my invites out! I've had to rewrite the seating plans and change numbers with the venue. It's a sad fact but sometimes people just fall out or in our case grow apart and then have a bust up over something silly! If it so happens that we do start talking again then there's only room at the evening reception xx

I'm so glad I'm having afternoon tea no seating arrangements to worry about and basically a free for all my family and friends xx no stress wedding
