Hey everyone! I’m new to this site and I wish I had known about it a looong time ago! I’m getting married in 7 weeks and am finally more excited then stressed!!! Of course we all know the stress won’t go away until the actual wedding day. Right now it’s the fun of getting rsvp’s back and having people saying they are bringing a guest who weren’t invited with one. It is so hard to call them and tell them they are invited alone! Anyone else have to do this? Also trying to get just that one more person invited even though we are already over our numbers is very frustrating!

Welcome!! I am so glad you finally found this site and it is never too late! We’re getting married September 12, 2009 so we just got through the whole chaos of RSVPs…we didn’t have anyone that asked to bring an extra person, however when I expressed frustration to my FMIL about not getting some RSVP’s back she told those persons to just send it in with a question mark! What?? We did have to make some last minute phone calls, which were awkward, but in the end your budget will thank you!!

McG, in addition to being date twins, I also share your desire to have found this site earlier in the wedding process! Good luck with your plus one calls! We’ve only had one person do this, so far we have space to accomodate the extra person. I’m just getting anxious waiting for all the RSVPs. I feel like I get less mail now than before just because I’m waiting. I swear my mailman is playing tricks on me.

Hey Kelly, I totally agree with you on the mail slowing down! I rush home from work every day to find maybe 1 response a day. I wish they would all just come at once! Also, did you notice, we are engagement date twins as well…haha

Welcome McG817!! Isn’t this site WONDERFUL!! Congrats on getting married in a couple of weeks!! As for your RSVPs, it’s pretty rude for others to invite whomever they want, you should call (or get your BMs or mother) and let them know nicely that it wasn’t meant for a plus 1 and that youre already over on the guestlist and can’t accomodate their plus 1. And if they get upset with you, hey thats just another person not coming!
