My invites were sent out on Friday and I came home last night to find 6 responses already. (Big gold stars to these very prompt friends and family members!) However, I must admit that when I opened 2 of the 6 and found that they had declined the invite, I was a little ticked. My inner bridezilla screamed "Hey, we thought enough of you to invite you and you are declining?!". The feeling only lasted a few seconds and it was over. Just wondering if anyone else is having those shameful little bridezilla moments.

Pretty much every other day. Okay, maybe every day. It is stunning to me that my imminent marriage has not taken over the life and mind every living being the way it has mine. What is truly annoying are all those people (friends, I think we call them) who think I should have time to do anything not somehow related to the wedding, or the associated huge household move, which is taking over every spare moment (sleeping and waking) not already devoted to the wedding. I actually caught myself the other day being thankful for my sister’s new baby, not because she is the world’s most adorable niece, but primarily because of her very useful function in distracting my mom from nagging me about the parts of the planning she doesn’t think are going properly. So you see, everything really is about me.

I can’t believe the nerve of some people. Not being able to make it to MY wedding! Don’t they know how much time and money I put into this thing! That’s it, if they get married I’m not going. Why did I even ask them? LOL

I know what you mean! Especially since I spent all that time and effort DIY-ing my invitations! If they weren’t going to come, why did I waste an invitation on them? 😉

LOL! I think we’re all guilty of having ‘bridezilla-ish’ thoughts…just make sure you don’t act upon them! I find I get a little fed up when my attendants expect me to drop everything and help them out but haven’t offered to help out at all with wedding related stuff. Ditto for my family. Usually taking deep, calming breaths and remembering that I only really care because…well…it’s my wedding usually helps! The worse though for invites are people who’ve previously said that they would come….and then decline the rsvp! Or those who seem totally non-commital to attending…like they’ve received the invite, but will wait until the absolute last moment to rsvp, just in case something better comes along! argh!

I totally hear all of you. What gets me are people who say to us "what do you MEAN you’re not inviting so-and-so"…uhh… yeah we haven’t had any type of communication with that individual since we graduated college FIVE years ago. Now all the sudden they should snag an invite? I don’t think so. Then I get this "look" when I explain to them that unfortunately we have to keep the guest list small…

I get those moments, but shoot if people don’t want to bother to come at least they are declining so it saves me $$. I rather them RSVP with a no than to say they’ll come and don’t show up in the end and I waste my money.
