- Wedding: June 2013
We sent out the invitations earlier this week, and it seems everybody has received them, but I’ve gotten some messages from my fiance’s siblings about plus ones. We only extended a plus one to the sibling who was living together with their partner. Well, I just found out one sibling has gotten back together with her long time boyfriend of many years, and the other sibling has apparently been dating someone for like 6 months. If they’d told me this in advance, I’d have cut someone else from the list in order to invite their +1’s, but now I’m kind of stuck. If we get two no’s, then for sure they can come, but at this point I can’t add people. We have a max number and we’ve sent out that number of invites.
Now, on top of that, somehow people seem to think if I send the invite to John and Jane, that Jane if she doesn’t want to bring John, can bring someone else. Am I in the wrong for thinking that shouldn’t be the case? Because if only Jane comes, I have room for a siblings plus one…
And… at that.. if we invited Sally and Tom (who lived on the same street as fiance growing up), what makes them think if they can’t come they can send Jill and Jack (different family) who also lived on the same street as fiance growing up instead?!? Seriously… if your name is not on the invite, and it doesn’t say guest, why would you assume you can replace yourself with someone else?!?
People have only had their invites for 3 days and already we have issues!
