- Wedding: June 2012
I accidentally invited the girlfriend of one of FI’s cousins, not knowing she wasn’t already invited and accounted for on our guest list. They’ve been together like 3 years, and have a kid together. Why oh why Fiance was she not a part of our guest list? But I digress. Anyways, we’re not super close to them at all, in fact I just met them all in March! But as we were leaving the restaurant that day, I said ‘see you at the wedding’
I didn’t think twice about it at all, until I get a text from a number I don’t recognize a few weeks ago. (We put business cards w/ info to our website, as well as both of our phone numbers, in the invites.) I’m the text in italics…
Hi govida and mrgodiva? Its me sue sam smiths gf,sam n i was woundering if i was invited too?
Yeah, can I call you later at this number?
Um can u.just text ill be working.
Hi Sue. Sorry it’s late, I’m just getting home from work. Yes, you are invited; however the wedding is an adult only reception. If you could mail in the RSVP for Sam with both your names, and initial which meal choice you would each like, that’d be great. Thanks!
But y it only said sams name on there not mines 🙁 haha
Ok so just only us no kids right?
I was up overnight getting invites out, so I may have had a few typos :/
And yes, we want it to be adults only. The only children will be the kids that are actually *in* the wedding party.
I sent it today
Awesome! See you soon 😀
Hey what time the wedding
What time the reception over?
Probably around 11 at the latest, is my guess.
K, is there open bar?
Right now it’s a cash bar.
Cash bar means you’ll get wine during dinner and champagne for toasts, but that we aren’t paying for any other alcohol our guests may choose to drink throughout the evening.
O ok koo
If we don’t go cause we have no babysitter?
UGH I don’t know what to say to this! There was no typo, she just hadn’t been invited. There is no cash bar, we’re covering it, I was just flabberghasted that someone would actually ASK that!!! And her current question makes no sense to me. Is she telling me they’re not going, or asking for permission to back out?!?
