Yikes! I am so glad I am having only about 10 people at my wedding!

I advise my friends to do the seating chart 2 days before the wedding, because people do this kind of stuff!  Until you have planned a wedding, you don’t realize what a PIA it is to cancel or add someone.  It is kind of annoying, but it will be easier if you just wait till the last minute and then put things together.  And for grandpa to even be bringing a +1 when they’ve been dating 2 weeks is unrealistic of him to expect, IMO, for a small wedding.  Yes, I agree, this stuff is super annoying.  I think most people just don’t realize what a PIA it is.  And plus things just do change at the last minute for a lot of people 🙁

Can you redirect the money from the dinner of guests not coming anymore to add in more hor deuvres or more late night food?  That’s what we did.

@Sonya1976:  what I find especially annoying is that 2 of our guests who haven’t offically RSVP’d and are still a “maybe” just got married in December….surely they know what a PIA it is not to have a yes or a no by now for a wedding that is 3 weeks away….

I feel the same way you all do.

 

1. My step sister tried to bring her cousin ON HER MOMS SIDE that i dont know and have never met, I had to give the one a F-NO

 

2. A friend that isnt close anymore that i really didnt want to invite in the first place text me the other day asking if she can bring a girl she knows i dont like incase she needs a “backup” if her EX Boyfriend or Best Friend cant go with her…I told her she doesnt need to bring anyone, SHE WILL KNOW PEOPLE

 

3. A cousin of mine with a family of 5 told me they were coming 12 days before the wedding.

 

4. A girl a used to work with sent her RSVP two weeks late, i wanted to send it back and say TOO LATE YOU CANT COME.

 

Thanks for letting me vent about the guests that made me the maddest…

 

10 days to go

Wow, this stuff makes me scared.  I am so nervous now about my guest list.  I hope I don’t have any no-shows.  I would literally cry.
