- Wedding: June 2009
Do people really not RSVP to a wedding, then just show up expecting food? Also, do people just show up uninvited?
I was talking to my FMIL. I’m *really* annoyed that people are not calling to rsvp to ME even though that is what was dictated on the invite. They are calling her to see if they can bring their daughter (who was not invited) or bring a guest (who was not invited), etc, and she says yes, then calls to ask me if that was ok. Her brother actually called to ask if he can bring this lady he’s dating. I asked FMIL what her last name was (you know, for escort cards). SHE DOESN’T KNOW. So, why is she coming? Ugh. I said no more we’re over-budget. I got so annoyed I finally told her that people need to read their darn invitation and call ME up for questions regarding our wedding. How stupid are they? Ugh. Since when does the groom’s mother ever have the right to add-on guests when the bride and groom are paying?! Like my parents said, "who is she to do that?" right??
That being said, she actually suggested I order extra food in case people just show up. I commented how ridiculous of an idea that is and i thought everyone knew not to do that. I then told her we’re having a seated, PLATED dinner. NOT a buffet, seat-yourself kind of shindig. If you don’t rsvp, you don’t get food and you’ll look silly looking for a place card that doesn’t exist. I’m only paying for the people that are coming.
Seriously, do i really need to worry about people just SHOWING UP UNINVITED?! Or not RSVPing, then just showing up the day of? I’m so peeved about this. It’s all so *un-classy* as a friend of mine stated. Grrrrr.
