I only had to read the title to give an audible, “W. T. F.” That is unacceptable. This isn’t a birthday bash, it’s the most important day of your life — and YOU get to call the shots. So call them. Explain that it simply is not his place to invite more people – arrangements have already been made and there isn’t room for any more. I’m so sorry that you have to deal with this!! UNBELIEVEABLY rude.

I feel you.  So far we haven’t had anyone invite someone else but I am knocking on wood because we’re still waiting for a third of our RSVP’s.

Totally understand. People are doing this to my fiance and I days before the wedding and my fiance keeps telling me “We have room.” No we don’t.

Some notice would have been more convenient, and he really should have ran this by you to make sure you were okay with all of this. The wedding is so close, and he could have been bigger about this, in my opinion.

Amen! And I am not at all religious… but I hear ya! Our parents have been adding and adding. FMIL said FFIL did not want to invite coworkers but she actually didn’t ask him until a few wks ago. So now he wants to invite them and I understand! But the rsvp date is in one week! And no addresses yet!

I don’t get how people think its acceptable to go ahead an invite extra people to someone else’s wedding!!  This is not some backyard pool party BBQ in which they are standing around eating a case of hot dogs and drinking soda – this is a wedding that costs (at least) $25+++++ for each person to eat!!

uggghhh. I hate when people do this. And FI and my dad (who is paying the caterer) is just saying ‘oh it’s okay, we have room’ when we definitely DON’T–this is not a block party, people!
