I wasn’t going to do this but… reading through this thread makes me want to get a few of the LAME excuses I got off my chest.
What is LAME and RUDE is when guests don’t RSVP at all. They don’t send the card back, they don’t email you, fb message you, call or text. I would say about a third of my guest list did this!
Two of the lamest excuses were from my college friend and the groom’s brother.
My college friend told me she probably wouldn’t be able to make it because she was a bridesmaid in our other college friend’s wedding and “she has us doing all kinds of stuff for her.” Why is this a lame excuse? The mutual friend’s wedding is several months after mine. Not to mention a simple “no” or “no but I wish I could make it” would have sufficed. I don’t want to know the reason why you cant make it to my wedding is because our other friend is more important to you. The truth is the truth…but geez it sure did hurt my feelings!
The other lame excuse came from the groom’s brother and best man. Four days before the wedding, he texts him saying he wouldn’t be able to make it to the wedding because of military radius recall his unit was on. Why is that lame? His unit is always on that radius recall, our wedding was within the radius, and he told him via text! How do you tell your brother I won’t be at your wedding via text. YOU ARE THE BEST MAN!! It was like he wasn’t even trying. Also his wife didn’t come either. She sent us a text 2 days before the wedding saying sorry they couldn’t make it. And she couldn’t come because of…what exactly? No card, no can I see the pictures, no nothing. It’s like the wedding never happened as far as they are concerned. All in all I am glad they or rather he “couldn’t” make it because the step in best man, my husband and I agree was awesome!
