    What if you run late anyway? Don’t open this can of worms.

    No and no. If you’re invited to a wedding and you can make it you RSVP yes. If you can’t make it you RSVP no. It’s not that difficult.

    3/3:30 already seems really early to me.

    h00per :  you need to be prepared to be asked all kinds of stupid rude things by guests. It’s part of the package of having a wedding. You say yes to one request and suddenly you’ve said yes to a bunch and now your either trying to do too much the day of. I agreed to do my nieces hair and nails before my makeup artist arrived. It took longer and I didn’t have as much time for myself. My friend didn’t rent a car and I could tell she was angling for me and my fiancé to chaufer her around all weekend. I shut that expectation down real fast. There were so many things to do and I got so many random requests from people. Trust me it adds up and will stress you out. 
    everyone is a grown adult capable of figuring things out for themselves. Remember, people take vacations all the time and on their own have to figure out how to get themselves from point a to b on time. People like to play dumb when it comes to a wedding. Focus on yourself and your fiancé. Make plans that work best for you two. Everyone else will be fine.
