So I am under 60 days out and I am getting really excited and can’t wait to see all my family and friends.. but honestly the last 3 days have been the MOST stressful so far.
All b/c of people who are NOT invited to the wedding. Never in a million years did I think that would be an issue but it’s starting to make me not enjoy my planning anymore… 🙁
First I had a family member ask if they can bring an additional guest whom I’ve never met before but that is old news now. Today I got a message from my college roommate—-mind you we graduated in 1999 and the last time I saw her was in 2001!!!! Damn facebook! Its the only reason we are in contact now. But she sent me a message saying how sad she was she isn’t invited to my wedding…. Really? If the roles were reversed I wouldn’t be shocked at all to not be invited to her wedding. I am just shocked about how people act regarding weddings. Obviously I’ve never dealt with this so I am just utterly shocked! It’s been 10 years and even on fb we don’t even communicate at all. You know how they say that winning the lottery brings out the crazies.. well I think it should be changed to “getting married brings out the crazies!!!”
I seriously feel like I am the only one going through this crap…. please tell me I’m not….

I’ve gotten lucky in this respect but I know you’re not alone. I’ve seen many similar horror stories on the ‘Bee.
Hang in there, girl! You’re in the home stretch!

Getting married does bring out the crazy in people. I wish someone told me that before I started planning.

It’s FaceBook? … You know my favorite part about FaceBook? – You can ignore messages and just pretend you never saw them/they never appeared… especially if you don’t ever talk to the person in “real” life. 🙂 (But I may be a passive agressive hermit…)
Sorry you have crazies appearing. You are not alone. Watch out for invited people to start driving you up the wall soon too… (I don’t know if it’s them or me, but – eek! – everyone seems to be really high strung this week!)
It seems that as we get closer many of the bees seem to be counting down days to the morning after the wedding! 😉

@sn2bmrsmntgmry: You’re not the only one. Every bride has a horrible couple of weeks of RSVP’s gone wrong! You’ll make it through soon enough! good luck!

I totally get it – I had two women completely turn on me because they hate the fact that I even found someone to marry. They’re both miserable people and literally told me they hope I fall down the aisle. They told me I’m a brat because I have a 2ct wedding ring (my friend told them) and that they hope everything goes wrong.
I think this just means that Karma will bite them in the ass and everything will go PERFECTLY RIGHT.

I am in the same EXACT BOAT! i get married Sept 29th at a winery 🙂 so excited! except for the fact that i have so many people asking “where is my invitation” I have a restricted number of guests. We had to pay by the number of people. So I have 100 people that will be attending. Its a very intimate ceremony with just close family and friends invited. People are coming from everywhere asking me about their invite. One girl (facebook friend) passes me in Wal-Mart and doesn’t speak but gets on facebook and posts on my wall about an invite… uumm no honey! I think people see weddings as free food and a free night out!
