Advice to bees who are still in the planning process: Please don’t meticulously hand craft your invitations, give a box to your mother to mail for you along with your guest list of names and addresses (she wanted to make personalized labels for them) and leave her to her own devices. They may not make it to YOUR intended destinations.

Oh no 🙁
What’d your mom have to say for herself?

I would be wondering who didn’t get their invitations!?!
Also, I would make her call them in front me so she can personally apologize and uninvite each one if there isn’t room for them. I think that is one of the few instances where I might go fuill on homicidal maniac, not just brideszilla, on someone.

Oh my goodness. Was this intentional subterfuge? A mix-up? Who was supposed to receive those 4 invitations?

@beachbride1216: +1. I might kill somebody.
I second all the q’s about who she chose to nix from your list. And also second that you should make her call, apologize and uninvite them in front of you. Ain’t nobody got time fo’ dat!

Wow. I’m with @beachbride1216. It’s tacky to uninvite, but if you can’t make room, I would make her call those people up and explain her mistake herself. Did some of them at least RSVP “no”?
And…oh God…how many more uninvited replies might come?!

Ohhhh MY Gosh !!
Lol, I’d be tempted to tell Dear Old Mom, that it will sad to not have her at the Wedding… as she has so “generously” given away her seat to someone else
What a frickin disaster !!
Lol, and you only have 4 RSVPs in hand so far… cannot imagine WHAT she did with your Original List or if there are more Surprises still to come in the mail.
I’d be livid… I’d be homicidal for sure.
And I’d be having her FIX IT… or I’d be telling her you’ve decided to Elope and SHE can tell everyone why … family discourse over the Wedding Planning.
*Excuse me… I gotta go lie down now… my blood pressure is thru the roof, and I’m not even you*

I don’t know who did/didn’t receive one. I made 60 (just used up the materials). That’s pretty much accurate for the amount of addresses on the list I gave her. There couldn’t have been that many extras, if any, which is irrelevant because if she wanted to invite more people she should have ok’d it with me first. The respond by date isn’t until May 4 so I guess I’ll find out then if I don’t hear from certain people. My concern is the amount of room we’ll need. Every single response we’ve received (about 1/2 our guest list) has accepted to attend with pleasure. That includes the people, from both my family and his, who will be FLYING from out of state (we were pretty confident they’d decline). Yikes!
