I would be very nice and tell her that the numbers have been turned into the caterer, there is absolutely nothing you can do.

I would just try to ignore her talking about her Son’s wedding. My Future Mother-In-Law won’t shut up about FSIL’s wedding that was last year. I get that she is excited but shut it! Hahaha.

I have an aunt and cousin that talked about my cousin’s wedding at every family event for 2 years before the wedding (even though 2 of us got married and one had a baby before her wedding) and a year after (they even had a wedding album set out at her sister’s graduation party). It is super annoying, but it all you can do shake your head and know how rude they are.

I would also tell her that you have already turned in your numbers and can’t accommodate the extra guest.

UGHHH I can’t stand these posts.  They make me so afraid for my own RSVPs.

Stand your ground and tell her that nope, the final numbers are in to the caterer and there’s no way to add anyone now.

Oh that RSVP thing is obnoxious.  My cousin texted me asking if her nephew could come a few days before the wedding.  I called the caterer and arranged it so he could. Then he no-showed.  I almost killed her.  I was *thisclose* to sending her an invoice for his dinner.

@b00kbug:  Good! I would keep on saying it if she keeps on asking. I would even say that I called the caterer and they said that they already purchased the food, rented the linens, rented the tableware, there is nothing they can do. Stand your ground, and have a WONDERFUL day on Saturday!!!

How frustrating!

Perhaps she will be on her best behavior on Saturday.  I had a few guests who I worried about, but they actually were pretty good; and the one who talked a little too much got enough sideways glances and was reigned in by her date so it never got out of hand to bother me.

I think that most people know to keep the comparison to a minimum during a wedding – and those who don’t are usually shut down pretty quickly by everyone else.  (But, in this [nut]case, I wouldn’t be surprised of she starts up again after your wedding!  Sigh, family.)

@abbie017:  Seriously. I have a very strong feeling that this will happen to us with one person in particular, especially because they did it with FI’s cousin’s wedding. I’m not sure if they even asked (or if they asked and were told NO), but one of the uncles showed up with his daughter and a friend of hers (who was really weird) because the friend “loves weddings” and they didn’t want the daughter to be alone. Um…they have a HUGE family with tons of cousins, and younger Future Sister-In-Law was really looking forward to her being there and spending time with her. That didn’t happen. Now this girl has a boyfriend, so if they make it to next year, I’ll see if we get asked or if they just show up with him.

What a pest.  I’d designate someone to run interference day off.  Dont even let her get on your radar.

In my opinion, that is exceedingly rude! No extra uninivited people, especially on such short notice! And especially if this is a NEW girlfriend!

Bleh, I agree with a PP who noted that posts like these make her worry about what will happen with guests coming to her wedding. . . my wedding is a looong way off (not engaged yet) but I actually worry about this already!

I’m sorry those relatives are being so rude. . . it’s your wedding, you get to say what goes and what doesn’t!
