Haha, you tell’em girl! People don’t get it. They really don’t. This is not a time for people to parade their ‘hurt’ feelings around, it’s YOUR time!

@Polaris:  Haha seriously, that’s the way to do it. People are OBLIVIOUS and they assume just ONE more person won’t do anything to your budget. Hey, they’ll even chip in $50! …. *eyeroll*..

So, my youngest brother is 19. He was apalled that he couldn’t bring a date to my wedding. He said that “everyone should be allowed to bring a date, it’s a freaking wedding! I don’t want to be the only single one there!” Oh, dear brother. He’s never been to a wedding (apart from my dad’s when he was 7), so he has no clue. I got no shortage of messages on FB and texts cursing me out for now allowing him to bring a date (or joking that he’d do it anyway).

At the end of it all, my mom helped reel him in. It would’ve been one thing if he was in long term relationship, but this kid doesn’t date anyone past 3 weeks, so we didn’t feel it was necessary 😉

@Polaris:  people are so rude.  Multiple people have asked fi and myself why they are not invited, or will get intoxicated and get upset that they are not invited and cause a scene.

I blame TV/Movies…characters are always looking for dates to weddings! If you don’t go to a lot of weddings, and don’t know how invites work, you just assume you get a date! I know that’s what I thought when I was younger…but I also went to a wedding without RSVPing AND didn’t go to a wedding that I said I would…the only other weddings I had been to at that point  were ones I was in, so I didn’t know any of the etiquette involved. You live, you learn.
