Friend upset with me for asking her for financial help - now what?

I pissed off/offended one of my oldest friends recently and I'm at a loss as to how I should proceed. I asked her for a favor I've never really asked of any of my friends before: if she had the means to loan me around $200, though I made it clear that a lesser amount would help just as much right now. I told her I'd be able to repay it in approximately six weeks. She didn't take any of this well. [more inside]

tl;dr: Friend likes friend's sister. Friend is very socially awkward and sister is very scared of him for his "creepy" demeanor (according to her words) and the sister needs to know how to make him stop liking her. Ideas discussed include outright rejection, fake boyfriend, fake pictures, which I had mostly disagreed with, and need advice to sort this out. [more inside]

Should I invite friends to our wedding I'm not that close to?

Should I invite friends to our wedding that I'm not that close to and/or haven't really stayed in touch with? Do people think of wedding invitations as obligations to give gifts? Would it be really awkward? Or am I over-thinking this and I should just invite whoever I want to invite? [more inside]

I'm not sure if I'm invited to a private birthday party. How do I tell?

A friend invited me to a private birthday hangout about a month and a half ago, but hasn't brought it up since. I think she may have forgotten, and I'm fine either way - how do I check and see if I'm still invited without making her feel like she has to have me over? [more inside]
