Our new colleague revealed that he is getting married next summer. Some of our colleagues offered to sing as a choir in his wedding mass. When he left the staffroom, they realised their blunder. He did not even mention whether we are going to be invited or not! Did you ever invite yourself at a party?

I don't think I have. My older sister has a few times. She has went to birthday parties she wasn't invited to just because I was invited. Maybe when he get to know you he will invite everyone..

No, I've never invited myself to a party. I really don't like parties - I don't drink, and don't feel happy around drunk people who are not in control of themselves. I'd rather have an early night at home with a good book any day!

I never did, I was taught it wasn't polite. However, a couple of times friends were discussing parties around me and I would join in and make suggestions. Then they were hurt that I didn't show up, thinking I would assume I was invited! You just can't win these days.

Hi there ronaldinu I can't say that I have ever invited myself anywhere where I was not invited! People are always quite happy to assume I am coming!!! You're story is quite funny though!!

No I haven't I think it would be rude and if the people concerned wanted me to be there then they would of asked me in the first place...littleowl

LOL well I would have been a wallflower with that conversation,being no party goer I would have kept my jaws firmly clamped together.I can remember years ago being quite keen on weddings and the receptions,the wedding ceremony was always emotional,the exchange of vows was tear jerking,the exchange of wedding rings made me smile,and the couples first kiss as newlyweds was wonderful.But as time has gone on we have been to far fewer weddings,the last two being our own daughters,which of course were fabulous days!But the whole hype of the thing tires me out lol,the never ending arrangements etc,but although this reply makes me sound a killjoy lol I am not,I have just been to so many weddings that I am not too worried about attending any more lolol

I have never done that. I sing in the choir of my church and when I got married, there were a few people in the choir that my husband and I were friendly with, and we invited them to the wedding. Everyone in the church was invited to the church ceremony, but there was one lady in the choir who figured because other's in the choir were invited, (With an actual mailed invitation) she was too. You guess it, she showed up at the ceremony and the reception. I let it go and didn't say anything about it, because it was already done.
