- Wedding: June 2012
I have never in my life been so amazed by people. I swear people are treating our wedding like it is a free community event. People who should know better.
1. The handful of co-workers who informed me they were bringing their husband or child to the wedding (I invited everyone I work with–30 people, and all of them were to the person only .. not their spouse and children because that is the “norm” where I work–but apparently for my wedding everyone seems to be changing things)
2. The people who write in an extra name, or “guest” on their RSVP card. I mean at least some of them arae naming the extra person–several have just written “guest”–no you don’t give yourself a guest, we give “guest spots”
3. The people who are finding “substitutes” for others. Three people have invited random people to come who nobody (me, my family, my Fiance, his family) know because their husband/wife cannot come. I mean people they work with, neighbors, etc.
I made my guest list knowing I wouldn’t have 100% attendance and I will not. We have many people who cannot come (and have not found “substitutes”). But I swear if people keep adding people who are not invited, or substitutuing someone who is with someone who isn’t I’m going to scream.
Let me also say, the ones who are doing this are ones who know a good amount of people coming. It is isn’t that they will be there “alone”.
I am getting a good deal on food, but I am still paying $12 a person–I can stomach that for people WE have invited, but not for people that our guests are inviting. I’m so angry I cannot think straight.
