A friend has become very religious very quickly and is now getting married soon to a man she's only known for about 4 months. I am invited to the wedding
I don't particularly like her as a person anymore since she converted, shes changed in a number of ways and if I had met her as the person she is now, we would not be friends.
Despite also being seriously strapped for cash I don't agree with the way the marriage has been arranged and rushed into, I'd feel very uncomfortable attending as I have never met the groom before either and for all I know he's a totally b******.
How can I decline the invitation tactfully?

Boycotting a friends wedding = friendship over, basically.
I dealt with my wedding phobia by not turning up and consequently I do not speak to the person in question anymore.
If you want to keep the peace, go and grin and bear it.

Say you're on holiday then avoid them for a week and have a good story to tell when you 'get back'.

Ham22 basically hit the nail on the donkey's arse. If you don't go then you're no longer friends.
You've said you don't like her anymore though... so I don't see what the issue is.
If it's about being polite, then just send a message back saying "Sorry, I will not be attending." You needn't give a reason at all if you don't wish to - though it's always polite to RSVP.
