there was no table with the wedding party. She is mad because of being “alone” for our 7 minute ceremony. Hahah.
brother also thought it was ridiculous she asked me that. DH and brother and her all are the same age/graduated together so DH and them all have mutual friends, which is how it came around to being heard by me. DH dislikes her a lot and feels sad for my brother.
she is younger…23. I know I knew etiquitte at that age though. She had the mentality of a spoiled child. She doesn’t “work” but babysits for her mom and makes about $200 a week and my brother has to foot the rest of the bill money. Pisses me off. HHAHAHA
Oh well! He will have to learn on his own, I don’t think anything I could say would make him leave her. It’s his high school girlfriend and he has low self esteem. 🙁

HAHAHAH! I laughed when I typed it out. I literally was screaming that. I asked my make up girl, “If you were a plus one, WOULDN’T YOU KNOW YOU CAN’T HAVE A PLUS ONE? Aw, no….it’s cool….go ahead and tell your plus ones they can have a plus one and that plus one can have a plus one too. I don’t mind, my wedding will only havguests guests that neither BRIDE OR GROOM know or care about!” Oi vey!

Dude, I am 22, I know quite how extremely rude this is… This is not age, this is just manners.

@heathuhhhhwebbbb: This girl is crazy and seems very dependent on people. DH has been in two weddings where I was his guest. I was fine sitting by myself, enjoying cocktails while the wedding party was taking pictures, and socializing with others. Oh well. You can’t win all the time.

ugh she sounds like a peach. i hope your brother has a change of heart about her in his own time.

lol even I have to draw the line at plus ones having their own plus ones.
She sounds oblivious.

Oh Pshaw! The utter cheek of her! Clearly you had the misfortune to encounter Guestzilla!

Haha wtf!? That girl is crazy. Who thinks that way? Maybe she hasn’t been to any weddings and literally does NOT understand how the whole thing works. My brother bitched and moaned for weeks leading up to the wedding that I wouldn’t let him have a plus one. He was 19 at the time, and had no serious girlfriend (he couldn’t even stay with the same person for more than 2 weeks … still can’t). We weren’t about to let him bring some flavor of the week. I think my wedding was the first one he’s been to since he was like, 7… so he doesn’t have any kind of understanding of how it all works, what it costs, etc. Sounds like this girl is really similar.
Hope she’s an ex-girlfriend soon!

@heathuhhhhwebbbb: Whoooaaa what the effing a…. Seriously so far out of line the line is on a different planet!!! Obviously Ms. “I want a plus one” is minus one brain.. and a whole lot of manners and common sense.

@heathuhhhhwebbbb: I’m sitting at the airport waiting for my Fiance and literally laughed at “PLUS ONES AREN’T ALLOWED TO HAVE PLUS ONES”. I’m getting strange looks now.
I’d be annoyed that she’s going around calling me names.. Really though, she’s just embarrassing herself. I mean, image telling someone that your annoyed at your boyfriends sister cos she wouldn’t let your friend come to her wedding the day of the wedding…. Anyone that hears that is going to think she’s an absolute weirdo.
Congrats on youda wedding day! I’m glad you had an awesome one 🙂

I don’t know the whole story, but your post brought to mind a similar situation. My fiance’s family wasn’t welcoming to me AT ALL for the first year and a half of our relationship. We are about to attend his sister’s wedding, and although they have finally started to accept us as partners, I am concerned that I will have to sit by myself at his sister’s wedding because I’m not “technically” family yet.
I understand that it was your big day. With that in mind, however, if you could see it from her point-of-view, perhaps you can understand her side of things. You never know, she may wind up being your sister-in-law someday. How would you have felt if your husband’s sister made you sit by yourself at her wedding? If that happens at my future sister-in-law’s upcoming wedding, that will make a bad situation worse between a brother and his sister.
Instead of wasting precious time (and causing unwanted wrinkles!) being upset, why not try to understand her point-of-view and then let it go? Be happy that you had a beautiful wedding. My fiance’ and I probably won’t get one and will wind up just going to the courthouse due to lack of financial resources for the big day. Congrats on your marriage, and I wish you all the best of times ahead!

I shit you not, I am 100% expecting that FI’s uncle does this. He has a history of showing up with extra guests (strangers to us!) and expecting them to be accommodated. He showed up to FI’s cousin’s wedding, three hours from where we live, with his daughter and a friend of hers (who was NOT invited) and called the groom ‘s dad (his brother) if she could come! They had no way to say no (because what was the friend going to do?), so she annoyed everyone there all night. Recently, he called Future Father-In-Law to say that he was coming over (surprise) and Future Father-In-Law was like, “Oh, okay. I guess we have stuff to grill out.” So he shows up with his daughter and TWO of her rando friends! WTF! Like, we’re literally sitting around, I’m helping FSMIL work on little brother’s grad party invites and Future Father-In-Law was doing yard work. I told Fiance that under NO circumstances will that be happening. Someone will have to tell him no, and if that has to be me because no one else will stand up to him, so be it. We are giving our caterer exact numbers, and there will NOT be room/a seat for extras.
I feel bad for your brother–he obviously doesn’t deserve this. Kinda sounds like my Fiance and his ex, actually. : And really? She was pissed that she had to be alone for a <10 minute ceremony? Ughhhh.
