Just as the title says - one of my best friends wants me to be part of her wedding party, but my husband isn't invited at all. As in, she doesn't want him there for some reason (she hasn't said why). Everybody else is allowed to bring a date.
We've been together for nearly 4 years, but we got married almost 3 months ago so he is my *new* husband and she knows this. I'm pretty sure she's being a total bridezilla about the whole thing and it hurts my feelings that he's not allowed to be there. Funnily enough, my invite says I am allowed a plus 1. So I can bring a date, it just better not be my husband.
I'm not really sure what to do. It's a question of social etiquette for sure. Do I go without him and be alone the whole time? Do I decline and potentially ruin a friendship that has lasted since high school? Do i just bring him anyways? She was at my wedding with her fiance and I invited both of them.

That's pretty petty of her considering she won't really have too much to do with him the entire day. Its not like he would be in the forefront or anything and him being there is going to ruin her day or anything?
I would say she is not a very good friend then, if she puts you in that kind of position where you have to ask your husband to stay home.
If you feel you must attend then I would go, but go alone... and only go if you and your husband have worked it out and he is okay with it.
On another note... you are only obligated to fulfill staying for certain parts of your friends wedding though... so once the vows, reception and first dance are done, if I were you, I would call your husband and go out the rest of the evening with him :) Your dressed up and beautiful, there is no reason why he can't get dressed-up to, and pick you up so you can enjoy the rest of the evening with him!
Just be sure all the wedding pictures are taken and then split... hahaha0
