Soooooooooooo I got this friendly message in my FB inbox
Hi Tasha, I have not received my wedding invitation yet. Did you put me off the list (lol). Love ya girl, I am having problems getting mail at my place. I’m sure to get if you send it to my Chattanooga address ************* Hope you allare having a good week!
Ok nevermind said message sender was never invited. She self invited when our engagement announcement was put in the paper — ok whatever. I didn’t respond. THEN 2.5 days later:
Hi Tasha, I still did not get an invitation, just wanted to let you know so you can track it. Have a great week!
By now I’m like… ok fine. I’ll invite her so I did. You’d think with all this excitement about getting invited she’d RSVP by now????!?!??!??!!?!??! Nope. Nothing… Meanwhile, FI’s family has yet to RSVP either. I know they technically still have 11 days to do it but dagnabit if you’re coming just SAY so already. Gosh.
P.S. I don’t even want to get on how RUDE it is to assume you’re invited, self invite, or just ignore the RSVP and/or no children policy all together.

Wow, I wouldn’t have invited her. That’s really rude and pushy.

@abbie017: Agreed. That would have solidified my resolve to NOT invite her. With my personality, though, I’d have replied “your invite didn’t arrive because I didn’t send you one.”

I love you ladies… LOL
I’m normally curt and straight to the point but with this wedding I’ve just had an “eff it” attitude towards the end. I don’t care if anyone other than the groom and Pastor show up at this point.

I just never would have invited her. I probably would have said something like, its a small wedding. But if I was being tactless me I would have said you aren’t invited. Either way, just forget about her, and if she doesn’t reply by the cut off, don’t count her in.

Oh snap! That’s a little assumptive! People are rude.
I feel you on the 11 days deadline. We are still missing about 1/2 of our rsvps. We had zero come back yesterday. *le sigh* Please send them in people!

@LadySand: While I agree that it’s very rude of this person to invite herself, I also am totally feeling your eff it attitude. FI’s Dad came out with a list of 7 couples to invite including some people neither of us had ever met (which was one of my “rules”) and I let it go. I’ve gotten used to spending money on things to make this less stressful for me, so this is similar right?
If I were you I would totally fb harrass this person every other day about the RSVP so she can see how annoying it is.
