Umm…just noticed on my cousin’s FB page that she invited a friend to my wedding! And that’s just after getting the Save the Date!!! Really?! I mean…my mom just told me that my aunt and uncle (her parents) can’t make it back from Germany so it’s not that I’m worried about space, but…REALLY?!!! I didn’t think we’d run into this until at least invitation time! WTH!

Eekkkkk! Maybe she just assumes she’ll get a +1?

I guess so…it’s just weird because she’s a cousin I haven’t spoken to in like 5 years or so lol. It’s family so I’m not so upset, but it was just shocking to see!

Well, too bad for her when she get’s the invite with no plus 1 on it. You are not obligated to invite her and give her a plus 1. You know what they say about assuming? you make an Ass-out- of u-and me hehehe

I think we have to remember sometimes that people outside of the wedding world don’t think about cost and space constrictions and are used to being allowed to bring a guest to a wedding. It wasn’t until after I was engaged that I even realized there were some people that didn’t let friends bring a guest. I completely understand the reasoning behind it… and am debating how I’ll handle the situation still… but I wouldn’t be so hard on her.

Forreal? how can she just invite people to your wedding without running it by you first? i am going to be so super mad if people do that to me. I am already going crazy about the guest list already if it happens and certain people show up without telling me I will become Bridezilla and let them have it!

Yeah….I’m hearing this through the grapevine about guests that I’ve invited, so I’m spreading back through the same grapevine, that unless your invite had two names or a “name and guest” you’re going to be coming solo. I think there a couple of people who are offended and aren’t coming, but I’m not sure what else to do! If they just show up with a guest, there’s not a lot I can do, but if I hear about it beforehand, I’m going to try to inform them that it’s not ok. I made rules about plus ones, trying to keep things reasonable, and I’m going to stick by them darnit! Maybe you could mention this to your cousin in a “joking, but I’m totally serious” kind of way?

*sigh* Wow. Well maybe she’ll forget about it by the time the invite gets there. Or maybe someone will bring +2 without telling you. Common-sense wedding ettiquette isn’t so common anymore!
