Just a vent bee’s….
My RSVP’s say the whole “we have specially reserved ___ places in your honor. Please indicate how many of ___ will attend. ____”
I’ve filled in the number of people in the blanks and the front of the invitation has the names of the invited. I get a few rsvp’s yesterday and frickin FIL’s friends have filled in an EXTRA name and left the number of people attending blank…..PROBABLY because they knew it was going to look STUPID writing 3 when I’ve indicated 2!!
ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We told IL’s no kids

Somehow this type of thing never fails. I don’t know what it is! Good luck dealing with all of that though! 🙁

@Gemstone: thanks lol, I need it. My FIL’s don’t understand the concept that even though its an under 1 year old who wont be eating…. its the fact that all the other parents we told “no kids” are gonna get pissed! “why couldnt MINE come?”
Drama from parents is not something the B&G needs to deal with on their wedidng day!

@shanbp: PP is right, this never fails. People are dumb. I had people purposely mark down that they wanted a kids meal when they’re adults because they thought it was funny.

Seriously, the audacity of people boggles my mind. Way no one every taught manners growing up?

@shanbp: I did similar RSVP’s. We’re getting a bunch back where people can’t figure out how to write the number of people that are coming in. Just giving me your name doesn’t tell me if you are coming or not! Also, to the genius who didn’t write their name on it at all… really? REALLY?

We’re gonna talk to them this weekend about it…. The thing is there are sooooo many people invited that have small kids/babies that if we had them all it would be too much to handle.
The main reasons we don’t want kids are a) The venue only has a handfull of highchairs and via my mock up table seating theres no empty chairs for people to put like a portable car seat or whatever on. The catering manager said they prefer not to have a bunch of those baby seats on the floor next to the parents chairs as Ive seen frequently before…. as b) we are having a very formal 7 course meal, so its kind of a hazzard for the staff trying to walk around them with hot food. So the only choice would be for one of the parents to c) hold the kid for over 2 hours until dinner is over lol…… and if the kid isnt like a newborn? then I dont see that going over well. Also d) we’re having an open bar and the majority of the wedding is gonna be coming to party harty, so we think it could be a liability to have kids running around.

@emelee: HAHA, yes I have had the blank named ones as well. I guess once they all come in it will be process of elimination and a snarky phone call lol….jk on the snarky phone call…maybe…haha

I’ve only gotten a few back (bridal party and close family, mostly), but my cousin forgot to fill in the first blank. Thankfully I knew it would be all three of them. I forgot to fill in the second number for one of FI’s groomsmen, so they filled it in as “two of us attending” lmao.

@vorpalette: LOL! That’s an RSVP I’d save.

@letigre: I’m probably going to save some of these just for laughs and good memories. FFIL’s RSVP (done by his wife) came back with doodles on it.

@vorpalette: I have doodles/or personal messages on about 90% of them so far, its so priceless!

People are super dumb.
We did check boxes:
Guest(s) will be attending
Guest(s) are unable to attend
One of our guests (single guy, no +1, envelope addressed only to him) checked off “Guest(s) are unable to attend” even though he is coming. But he isn’t bringing a guest so thats what he picked.
