  • Wedding: April 2012

I’m swinging back and forth between amped and worried! My deadline was yesterday and I still have about 10 of 50 RSVPs not returned (mostly people my Future Mother-In-Law invited – hah!) So much to take care of and the fact that I don’t even know how much food is gonna end up costing is so not helping. Also, why did I plan on getting married during tax month?

  • Wedding: April 2012

I had to follow up with 8 couples (10% of the invited guests) – and I am still following up with them.  Most of them are people that my mom wanted to be invited, so I assumed that she would follow up with them.  Evidently she wants me to do it, but doesn’t have anyone’s phone numbers.   I don’t mind doing it, but I really am so upset that in a 6 week time span these people can’t have the courtesy to put the rsvp card back in the mail.  

Also, I had one great-aunt that I’ve never met who my parents figured ‘would never come but would like an invitation’ – oh yeah, you can see where this is going.  On her RSVP, she indicates that she wants to bring along both of her 50-something daughters and their husbands even though I only gave her a +1…not a +4.  Also, my parents don’t seem to have her actual phone number, so now I have to write her a letter telling her that I can only reserve a spot for one person in addition to her.  Nice.  I have a feeling they won’t even come in the end which will frustrate me even more.

If anything drives me to crazy obsessive mode, it will be these stragglers and drama queens.

@lmoss78:  i can’t believe someone would include so many more guests on their rsvp.  that is so rude.  it’s amazing how many times i have heard this happening.

@mypinkshoes:  If they actually come – I won’t worry about it.  My parents were very generous in helping out with the wedding, so I have no problem inviting people that they want to see.  If they bail after I have to give final headcount though…I won’t be so nice about it!

Only 2.5 weeks to go!  After that, I won’t have to deal with this ridiculousness….

@lmoss78:  that’s a good attitude towards it.  why dwell on it, right?  i know, only 18 days away.  i just sent my venue our final numbers, our seating plan and the meal selections/guest.  just going over my checklist.  things seem to be falling into place. 

it is getting very real.
