- Wedding: September 2013
i need to vent a bit about the guest situation. i have loved every part of planning this wedding except the rudeness and disrespectful behavoir of some of our invited guests, which im sure every bride encounters.
for example, my great aunt had passed away not too long ago. At the wake/funeral I had several people give me grief about not inviting them, or not inviting their whole families…..not the time to discuss this, we are at a funeral!!! they bombarded me and my mother to ask for more seats, and without asking my own mother told them that they could come.
despite being so angry with my mother, i gave in and turned a party of 1, into a party of 4. But, i made very very very clear that we are not having children at our wedding except my neice bc she is a flower girl and that we are at capacity for our venue- so no more seats!
they never rsvp’d, I had my father call them. they are coming, and coming with their 3 children. arhhhhhhhhh! the frustration.
oh and her sister which is also a party of 1, is now coming with someone. So just add another guest on without asking me its fine.
my frustration continues bc me and fiance are funding our whole wedding. and my parents are uninvolved/uninterested/incapable of helping us with anything including finances. all i asked my father to do was confirm the attendence of a few people, and this is what he tells me….and then laughs, not understanding how stressful and unfair this is.
oh well. thanks for reading
