Your invitations are lovely! Don’t listen to them! My invites don’t have our last names either. They’re coming to your wedding they know who you are for cryin’ out loud! And if you dont have anything nice to say, you shouldn’t say it at all!

I agree with the “button it up” policy! Our invitations were adorable and a surprise to all. Do not ask for input or you are asking for trouble, in my opinion. BTW, your invitations are lovely.

Your invitations are totally beautiful and sweet.
Just ignore what others have said about them.
I know how hurt we can get though at the smallest comment anybody says about our wedding. Planning a wedding has been the hardest thing I’ve done in my life so far; so stressful and time consuming and we put alot of energy into thinking about every little crazy detail. So when others complain or say something negative about what we did, it hurts. I’ve also sent out my invitations last week and I’ve already gotten three back. Its so much fun to look in the mailbox and see someone has responded to the RSVP so quickly. The only one I’m surprised I haven’t heard from is from a friend of 33 years. I think something is fishy. I’m surprised she hasn’t called to say something negative about my invitations and even more surprised she hasn’t sent the RSVP yet. I think she’s rushing to get married before I do!

sugarpea: My SO does stuff like this to me all the time about little stuff. Example: We’ll order pizza and he’ll say “whatever you want” and so I’ll pick something, and we’ll be in the middle of eating it and he’ll go “I really wish we had gotten pepperoni”. I laugh at him now that I’m used to it, because he just sincerely doesn’t realize he wanted it until he doesn’t have it, but in this case that really stinks.
I love your invites. They look beautiful! 🙂

If loved them that’s all that matters. Plus the invites already went out, don’t cry over spilt milk.

- Wedding: September 2013 - The Gables at Chadds Ford
There are always people who will point out the negative in everything! I LOVE them and think just having first names is completely fine! Some people are just really traditional, and *ahem* RUDE! Why would someone complain about a beautiful wedding invitation? Sorry lady! But they are beautiful so forget the negativity!

ohnatto: Ugh yeah my Future In-Laws are definitely the type of people who have to try to bring you down if you’re happy or excited.. or pretty much any time they can sneak in a passive aggressive hurtful comment 😉 We don’t visit them often aha.
Mademoiselle-G: Thank you!! I feel so much better knowing that I’m not alone (or wrong) in how we worded things.
boogiewoogies: Aww thank you!!! ♥
Lauraine: I’m dealing with that too… one of my close friends of 9 years (which is a pretty long time when you’re 23 aha) is totally ignoring everything about the wedding and acts like it isn’t happening. I’m not confident she’ll send the RSVP back because she’s told me she doesn’t see the point of them and isn’t sure if she’ll be able to fit our wedding into her life (she’s known about the date for two years!). Weddings bring out the strangeness in people.
reynaweddingbee: mrsjordan53014: Thank you so much for your kind words and reassurance! 🙂

I remember spending quite a lot of time getting the wording of our invitations “just right”. And the funny thing is that seven months after the wedding I cannot for the life of me remember what it said! For example, I know it featured my first name and middole name but I can’t remember if we put his middle name or not.
What I do remember is that they were very pretty and stylish and I was very happy with them.
As long as you like them, it really doesn’t matter what everyone else thinks (especially as you put time and energy into working out what they wanted).

Sugarpea, you are so right, weddings do bring strangeness in people. The minute I told this friend that I was getting married, four days later she called me and said “Sorry to blow your bubble, but we are getting married too in March or April” !! Boy was I angry when I heard that. First, she has been with her SO much longer than I have and even though she did mention to me a couple of times she wanted to get married, she also said they couldn’t afford it. But now, isn’t it funny that just when I tell her I’m getting married, she finds the money to do it. Although I’ve been very close to this person for a long time, over the years I’ve kind of distanced myself a little bit from her cuz of so many things she has done and said to me that has hurt me. Everybody has asked me over and over again why I’m still friends with her. I keep telling everybody its cuz she’s like a sister to me and you don’t always get along with your sister, but that doesn’t mean you don’t love them or still want them in your life. Oh also, she has told me that if she gets married, I won’t be invited cuz it will only be her, her spouse, her children and sister in law. I told her if I wasn’t invited, that wouldn’t flly well with me! We’ll see. Good luck with your friend.

sugarpea: cute invitations. If one of these people are paying for the wedding or invitations they really should shut up about it. I would tell them “the invites are real and final. I did not send you a draft for comment. So please review and respond. Thanks.”

Vent away my sweet!! Your invites look stunning! Try and block out what people are saying about them! You should love them as much now as you did when you picked them 🙂

MrsBuesleBee: I agree. This wedding is for the OP and her fiance. Why should anyone else have even seen the proofs? It seems like these others are being given too much power and once you open that feedback door, it’s hard to close…
