- Wedding: June 2013
this is literally the email RSVP I just got from FH’s extended family. Wow.
Okay. Wedding planning has taught me a lot. Especially how rude or thoughtless some people can be, how little anyone cares about your wedding (other than you) and how incredibly fast I will now reply to RSVP invitations. Oh, and always say no to the potentially awkward plus one requests.
I just thought the response was a little, well…NOT heartfelt but at least they RSVP’d. It sends shudders down my spine to think my handcrafted caligraphy-written invitations would be shoved under a pile of ‘crap’.
Regardless. I’ve been a little put out by how awkward some things have been for me in the wedding process. Honestly, this response falls by the wayside of having to clean up at my own shower….having to get on my hands and knees in front of awkward plus-one guests and pick up wrapping paper from under tables as guest filed out bearing arm-fulls of food and goodies they took with them. Having zero response from Future Sister-In-Law when I decided to share pictures of my dress with her. Having the pitying looks from girls with megahuge diamonds when they saw my .5 carat lovely. And worst of all having disinterested people reply to the invites or come to the shower and look completely miserable.
Sorry i’m venting. I just cannot believe some people would feel the need to decline an invitation or simply not RSVP at all without any reason as if it were a dentist appointment. Please, guests, the bride and groom put a lot of time and effort into making the day special for YOU as well. They really don’t need any extra hassle or rudeness regarding RSVP-ing on time, showing up without being invited, or simply being rude in person.
:/ Etiquette is there for a reason. So as people won’t assume you just don’t care and are honestly as disinterested as your responses make you seem. Whatever happened to manners?
