Due to the restraints at my venue, my final payment and guest count was due already. We had our invites due back by end of July so we could have enough time to call people. Now 2 weeks out I get back RSVPs from the BRIDAL PARTY adding a date. We have asked them time and time again, they knew when our deadline was. There’s nothing I can do but now I feel like a jerk because they are the bridal party and should be able to have a date. Why do people not understand deadlines??

That’s a crappy position to put you in. Honestly, if you expressed to them the venue restraints and aksed them repeatedly to RSVP, I would feel comfortable telling them they can’t have dates. I know it might be an awkward situation, but you gave them plenty of warning and they didn’t respect that. Good luck! 🙂

I’m tempted to try to contact my venue but I know the coordinator is out of town this week. I feel terrible we called everyone and double checked even before I started doing the seating chart. Part of me wants to say go for it because I know there will probably be guests that aren’t going to show up, but I don’t want to be put in an awkward position being over guests.
