- Wedding: September 2010
This is more just to vent because I’m really letting it get to me and I told FI it was his call, but I’m still irritated. One of the groomsman is driving me nuts. He lives in Boston and is flying here for the wedding, but he used to live here. He calls my FI yesterday and asks if he can bring an old girl friend from when he lived here to the wedding. Ok, that’s fine because we did invite him, a guest, and his kids. He decided to come alone since his girlfriend just had their baby. First, he never sent his RSVP back, just told my FI he’d be there. I stamped and addressed it for you, how hard is it to send back? Second, I already have my table plans and place cards done. I am not changing it so he can sit by some girl I don’t know. Third, the wedding is in a week and a half. You didn’t think about this earlier? If maybe he would have let us know, say by sending his RSVP back, then it wouldn’t be that big of a deal, but sheesh.
My FI made the call and he told him he could bring the girl, but we had the table plans done and unfortunately, she would not be able to sit with him as I would have to rearrange everyone to do so and don’t have the time for that. So what does the guy do? Nothing, doesn’t respond, answer, nothing. I hope that wasn’t rude of us to say, but we can’t be changing things for last minute add ons, especially for some girl I nor has my FI ever met. I have a table with open spaces for last minute add ons, so that’s where she would go.
This guy also was supposed to come in next Tuesday night and my FI is picking him up at the airport. He had told my FI weeks ago that he had an airline ticket to come in Tuesday night. We have a scheduled boat for the Wednesday to go out into the Gulf for the entire wedding party and that was to leave at 9. What flight does he really get? He gets it for the day of the boat and he comes in at 8:40 am. So now he is inconveniencing the rest of the bridal party because FI has to pick him up at the airport and we have to delay the boat.
I’m just irritated. This groomsman has been married 3 times and now doesn’t believe in marriage, so I’m thinking he just isn’t taking this very seriously. I needed to let all that out, thank you for reading. Back to being happy and not caring what this guy does.
