- Wedding: July 2013
So I always considered myself to have it relatively easy when it came to the guest list since we increased from 150 to 200 I thought it was great, everyone got whoever they wanted.
Guestlist was finalized a few months ago, everyone had their 5th revision and was happy. Mom, Dad and I finished off making the invites (SO MUCH WORK) yesterday, well, 85 of them, the last 20 to be completed this evening. I was then going to take them all, stuff them and mail them out as per the guest list. (minus the 8 addresses, Fiance is still trying to get)
I asked FI’s parents to stop by today since they were dropping his cousin at the airport and I wanted to give them a thank you card for the early wedding gift since they couldn’t attend.
Great! Then all heck broke loose. “We have to add two people” “We have to remove X, and Y because we’re not atalking to them anymore” then my Fiance: “Oh and I”m adding at least 2 more people too”
………excuse me? its 9 weeks to the wedding, the RSVP date is June 14th and I told you I was mailing out today. Why are you making revisions… TODAY. In the end I had no choice… I emailed their half of the list and they promised to get them to me tomorrow.
No one understands that we have 106 invites made (successfully) and need to mail out 106 invites. Originally we had 94 to make when we ordered the supplies and tried to make 120. 6 already went out which means we managed to successfully make 112 of the 120, not bad IMO but with the ever growing list its now an issue and no one wants to listen to me 🙁 It took us weeks to make the other invites and to make more is going to be a pain in the butt, not to mention the $$$
