@aviatorbry:  Man this is a tough one. It is your mom’s responsiblity.

Do you have a Day of Coordinator? Or a friend who is willing to calling them?

Maybe you could say someting like “I’m sorry my mother sent you this website but it was an accident. Please do not be any at the mother. Howver our venue and guest list has been decided and I’m sorry my mother has inconvienced you”.

But hey, if you don’t want the wedding anyway, go ahead and cancel it!! Do what YOU want to do!!! Especially if a lot of people are RSVPing that your mother invited

You need to put your foot down

I’d cancel the online RSVP thing or at least password protect it. Contact the people she invited directly and say that it’s a very intimate wedding and you don’t have the space in the venue.

Your mom is the one who must deal with this. She needs to personally call and speak with every single person she mistakingly invited and explain her error. This si not your fault. I will say, however, that this is why I would never consider an online RSVP at all, but especially not one that let anyone in to RSVP. I’d only use a service for which the person had to be listed as a guest before he/she could RSVP.

Take down the website immediately!  It’s your mom’s responsibility but if she won’t do it, you need to call.

Yes, take down the site ASAP, and email your guests to let them know that if they haven’t RSVP’d yet, they should RSVP via phone or email instead.

And don’t tell your mom any more info about the wedding!!!

🙁  What a tough place to be in.  I agree that it is your mom’s responsibility to contact each person individually and also to take down the website and create a new one that only you have access of inviting people to.

This is horrible, take the site down ASAP. Then have your mother call them and let them know it was by accident
