I’m not sure to reply to people but Yes, all of the RSVP’s have already come in. They were due the day of the shower.
I have never met these people and never knew they existed though so that is why they weren’t on the invite list to begin with! She told me at the shower that her daughter was found recently in a homeless shelter and she just recently took her into her home along with the boyfriend. If I had met these people before, they more than likely would have been originally invited, but I didn’t even know she had a daughter until that day she asked.

Did you get the chance to talk to her?

I sent her a text and haven’t heard back yet. I basically told her sorry, but we were maxed out on RSVP’s but we would let her know if anyone cancels in the next 2 weeks.

Weddings are about family, but they are NOT family reunions. If she wants to develop better family bonds among her family, that is her responsibility. She shouldn’t be foisting that responsibility on to your wedding.

UPDATE… She just wrote back to my text. She said, “thanks for checking and we are looking forward to the wedding and excited for it…. and then some random stuff about her neck hurting and her staying at the hotel for the wedding.”
Huge sigh of relief that is dealt with!
Thank you all for talking me through this!!!

+1 Especially since she’s never met them.
We haven’t invited all our aunts/uncles/cousins, because there are some that we don’t communicate with.

smh, some people act as though a wedding is just a gathering of people! You can kindly explain to her that each person there means something to you both. So unforntunately these 2 dont make that list.
