Guy pleads for advice after her best friend doesn’t invite her FOUR-YEAR boyfriend to her wedding – so who do you think is wrong?
- A woman slapped her best friend for not inviting her partner to her wedding
- The disappointed woman said she had been with her partner for four years
- She added that her best friend is friends with her longtime boyfriend
An Australian woman is devastated after her lifelong best friend decided not to invite her four-year-old boyfriend to her wedding.
The disappointed girlfriend revealed she was ‘devastated’ by the decision and thinks it could ruin their friendship.
“I’ve been so excited about the wedding since the day she announced her engagement,” she said.
The wedding would have been the first she’d attended with her four-year-old boyfriend, and that was something she was excited about.

‘I am absolutely heartbroken. I know it’s her day and she’ll have the final say, but we’ve been together for four years and they’re friends too, ”she cried.
She then asked for advice on how to handle the situation.
Most readers were sympathetic, but agreed that the woman should ask her best friend, not strangers on the Internet.
‘She’s your best friend. Just ask her if there’s room for him, ”someone said before asking if the woman was part of the bridal party.
“I would take it as a hint that you are neglecting friendships because of your relationship and that she is making sure you are present right now. That’s very fair, ”she said.
“If she was your best friend, as you say, you could talk about anything. You would have already asked her why he’s not invited or if he can come if you pay for him, ”added another.
One woman said if she can’t bear to go without her boyfriend, she shouldn’t go.
Another said she should ask, but only if she happily accepted the answer.
“If there is a specific reason such as Covid restrictions, budget issues, try to understand her decision as well,” she said.
Another said not to be surprised if the bride could not afford his seat.

Some said he could be invited and the plus could be implied.
Couples usually go to weddings together, so maybe she assumed he would be there? You won’t know unless you ask and hopefully it will be resolved soon. I really hope he gets invited, otherwise it could lead to awkwardness after the wedding. ‘
‘It’s a wedding, you get a plus, who else would you bring? He doesn’t need to be explicitly invited, does he? one asked.
Another woman said the bride is sending a clear signal that she no longer wants to be best friends.
One of them suggested that she ask the other girls in the friendship group if their partners were invited.
“She would like to have you all at a girl’s table,” she said.
Others said she is an adult and can go on her own so shouldn’t make a fuss.
Traditionally, partners are expected to be invited if they’ve been together for more than a year, but wedding etiquette has changed due to the global pandemic.
