I posted a few weeks ago about this. My friend, we are not super close, but she thinks we are. My FI and I were invited to her posh wedding a year ago, the entire time though she complained about the cost of things, I was supportive and listened. So I invite her and her husband to my wedding which is in a month. She is preggo and was due the week before my wedding, but she still RSVP Yes. So I was pretty surprised and a little confused. She was invited to my shower, and RSVP Yes, knew it was a surprise but still text me the night before asking for directions. ( I had found out a week before about the shower, but I had no idea the location) My FI was beyond pissed, she ruined the only surprise of the shower. Well the day of the shower comes, and she doesn’t show. So I am worried thinking something happened, so later that night I text her, and she just responds Oh you had a great day for your shower, I got held up with my GF doing things. Never said she was sorry for missing it or anything. My mom had to pay the $40 for her plate even though she was a no show.
So now, her due date just got pushed up a week, so it’s now 2 weeks before my wedding. I emailed her kind of fishing around to get an idea if her response changed. We have to have final numbers in in a week. So she writes back that, if she goes on her due date then she will come for an hour or 2. So I write back to the ceremony you mean? and she goes no to the reception!
She isn’t due until August 15, I have to have numbers in August 9..now what do I do. Our min is 150, and we are over and at 160, so we have to pay for her even if she doesn’t come. If we were under it wouldn’t be a big deal as we would still have to pay for 150, but I just don’t know what to say back to her. I mean why come for an hour and have us pay $300 for you, but then again if she doesn’t go on her due date and she doesn’t tell me until the week before my wedding, we are still paying for her!
