Unless they’ve put your invite somewhere ‘safe’ and now can’t remember where that place was?? I understand your frustration, give them the postcode and tell them to google it 😛

That is really annoying, but I think it’s pretty normal. We had people calling right up to the day of asking about timing, location, etc, etc…even though we had all of that information on the invitations, and also had a wedding website.

I just gave them the info, and usually threw in a line at the beginning like “the information is on the wedding invitation, we’re having the ceremony at 4:30…”. I guess I was telling myself that by saying that they’ll see the value of holding onto future wedding invites they receive, so I wouldn’t get too annoyed over it ll the time.

lol, inappropriate, but you could just screen your calls, and have your phone message be “Sorry we’re not here right now. If you’re calling about the wedding, it’s being held at …”

Hang in there, it’s normal but there are plenty of more enjoyable things to think about.

Do you have a wedding web-site? If people did that to ours I would tell them to get on our site and see all the info there. You shouldn’t be bothered with this when you’ve so much else to do!

I like the idea of the wedding website and voicemail combo – just put a message on your phone saying: If you need details please visit http://www.mywedding.com – Hope to see you there.  Then just enjoy it as things roll to voicemail.

dude.  seriously, people are clueless.  i had people calling me THE MORNING of the wedding with questions about time, place, what they should wear!!!!  After 3 calls I gave my phone to my Maid/Matron of Honor and told her to only pick up for hubby to be and vendors.  I totally understand your frustration, especially with people who have gone through this same process within the last 5 years.  Dont call me about stuff that you can readily access yourself if you werent so lazy!!!!  I have very little patience so when people called the weeks before the wedding I told them to refer to the invitation or website.  Then they started calling my Fiance and he has even less patience than me.  Serves them right…

That is so annoying! Could you create a general email with the info and if they call, you can just send it to them? I know that is not what you want to be doing or have the time for right now, but people sometimes just don’t get it or think the world revolves around them!

Yeah, I’m with you too.  What is wrong with looking at the info I gave you?  FI’s aunt called to RSVP 2 weeks after the invites were sent (6 weeks BEFORE our requested deadline) and left a message that she was planning to come but she hoped it wasn’t too late to RSVP.  Hello, you obviously have the invitation in front of you if you’re calling me.  Then, last week, she emailed Future Mother-In-Law to ask if she could bring her son (age 18, in college).  Yes, his name was on the invitation, he is invited.  Then she emails again to ask if she can also bring her son’s girlfriend.  Rude.  Sorry, had to vent 🙂

I think some people would rather talk to you directly even if they are aware that the information is on the invitation or a website. It’s a little more social and they’re about to spend their whole day or weekend coming to see you so they want to connect a little beforehand.

To those that had people calling you the day of – that’s awful!! I want to say “I wouldn’t answer my phone”, but I know I probably would thinking it was the photographer or something. Wow!

Oh my goodness. That is so irritating. But I really do think a lot of people toss stuff in piles and forget where they put it. They figure it’s easier just to call you, but don’t realize how irritating it is.
