This week has been hectic enough with everything leading up to my wedding on Saturday but the rude guests have been my breaking point of being frustrated…
Rude guest #1: I received a facebook message from a girl who I, A) sent the STD to with the wedding website on it, B) Sent an invite, C) talked to her several times in detail about the wedding and sent the link of my wedding website to her again since she asked me a lot of questions that the website could answer for her and her date. She facebooked me to tell me she was coming (commenting on my wall…weird) and that her boyfriend would be coming also. Today, she messages asking if my wedding is on Tuesday the 21st.
Rude guest #2: the best man. He can’t get off work for the rehearsal (we told him about it back in January) but he won’t know what to do if he isn’t there. He called FI cursing him out because FI said that he probably will just have to be a groomsmen if he can’t show up to the rehearsal since there is so much for him to do.
Rude guest #3: sent her RSVP card back…yesterday…with 4 guests attending. The reply date was 4 weeks ago.
Anyone else have rude guests before their wedding day?!?

I have people complaining that we are having a full catholic mass. Already! Our wedding is not until January. We haven’t even sent out invitations yet so how do you know you are invited?
Someone came up to me telling me what there plans were for the wedding; where they were going to stay, etc. Again, how do you know you are invited.
Someone else complainig that we are taking photos after the ceremony. It is only going to take 7-10 minutes. I’m sorry, but I drove 4 hours to your wedding that lasted 1 hour TOTAL and got like NO food to eat mid-day. I think you can wait a few minutes. (we are having a band play while guests wait and then secondlining to the reception venue.) They asked if we were going to have drinks for them and they didn’t have a drink at their wedding.
Someone else complained our wedding was starting at 7pm. Sorry I’m not having a midday wedding. Get over it.
I’m sorry if you don’t like it don’t come. BTW all these people live in different areas of the country than me, but it is still annoying.

Oh I am so over the guest list BS. Everyone keeps adding people and trying to switch things around. Uh, you didn’t get a “and guest” so IT’S JUST YOU. And no your kid can’t come, IT’S JUST YOU. Geez people are clueless.

@xtatic1: Yeah I agree. The and guest thing kills me, esp. when you know there is no “guest”!

personally i think you are in the wrong for dumping a best man because he has a work obligation and will miss the rehearsal – he didnt say he couldnt make the wedding. i for one take my job and career very seriously and sometimes things come up, what a bad way to treat your friend. i totally understand why your best man would be upset

Uh, yeah! Ours isn’t till November and some people are aready becoming problems! Like “I don’t want to sit with so and so” or “ugh, you’re having the ceremony in a church so i gotta drive there too?” or FI family “we can’t afford to pay for tux rentals, so we will find something else to wear.” UM, what? Oh, and here’s a good one, “they’re asking for monetary gifts instead of a registery. How tacky.” DON’T COME THEN!

Oh yeah the kid thing! Your kid is not invited, get a baysitter! Or DON’T COME! i personally am not paying $60 a person for children to whine and run around my wedding even if I am related to them…can’t invite everyone!

I think you were harsh in dumping the best man. He had a legitimate reason for no being able to attend and I can see why he would be upset. I’m sure it would take less than 5 minutes to run through where he has to stand/do before the ceremony starts. I think your the ones being a bit rude and unreasonable in this case.

@TheFutureMrsLamkin: My FI dad is already trying to change the way his tux looks. I’m like REALLY! why do you have to do this? We got the pin stripes like everyone wanted now you want to do more stuff to it like add a colored shirt. NO! leave it as is, PLEASE! For me?

Calm down! After Saturday it will all be over!!
As for the clueless girl, I would just nicely remind her to check her invitation.
For the BM, could he not get the day off or did he just not put it in early enough for it to be approved.
For the last person, did you allow them to come? We have a cut off two weeks before the wedding foir our venue so anyone who sends a card after September 10 will get a phone call saying “Sorry, no seat for you”

I’m soo happy that we’re only having fam and a couple of friends.
Ppl forget that a wedding isn’t a backyard party.

@TheFutureMrsLamkin: I just don’t understand why people think no registry is tacky! I can understand people being apprehensive about that if the bride and groom smoked crack or something.

@Assilem: OMG you just made me laugh so hard! “I can understand being apprehensive about that if the bride and groom smoked crack”

@eloping: I can see how it can come off as it was wrong to tell him to step down but he FI has been contacting him for the past 6 months…they haven’t seen each other in a year now. He’s been a really crappy friend to FI ever since he asked him to be his best man–and the best man said he would probably be late to the wedding. So FI decided on his own that he doesn’t want him as his best man.
@LuvMySailor: Ah, hell no! We couldn’t allow their three extra guests to come but we did tell them we made room on the catering head count in case they wanted to attend without their +3.
@TheFutureMrsLamkin: awwh…what a headache! Come on people!!
