I con­sider a good friend is get­ting mar­ried and didn’t in­vite me, even af­ter talk­ing to me about the plans. I’m hurt. Is there any way I can crack an in­vite? NL, Seaton A It al­ways stings to be re­jected, but the short an­swer is no, you can’t just “crack an in­vite” to a wed­ding. You re­ally don’t want to be the in­ter­loper who only goes to the cer­e­mony. A bri­dal guest list is a dizzy­ing bal­anc­ing act and the red pen usu­ally has to slice through work col­leagues and newer friends in lieu of par­ents’ busi­ness part­ners or drunk relatives from Queens­land. Think of those poor hang­ers-on who will be left off the in­vite list to Kate and Will’s wed­ding! Your friend might have spared you a clanger evening, any­way. Dull speeches, bad wine, awk­ward danc­ing, bind­ing fash­ions. I guess what you’re re­ally up­set about is that your friend­ship isn’t as strong as you thought it was. The only way to change this is to see more of each other, so don’t get bit­ter about be­ing dissed. Per­haps you can get to­gether af­ter the wed­ding and flick through the photo al­bum?
