Honestly… I have no words for this, but my face was all sorts of contorted reading it.   I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this!!

 I wouldnt stress out about this at all, I would just say sweetly say no its too late for her to come. You have given the final count to the caterers and have completed the escort cards, what more can they expect from you. Just stand your ground and say no

I would just write “and guest” under your uncle’s name on his escort card.  Smile

 

Try not to stress out about it.

It’s really OK if he comes with someone and there is no escort card for her — I’m sure your mom can just let him know “greeneyedmoon already  had the escort cards done when you invited x, but you’ll be at the same table.”  it’s really ok!

eta: or ditto PP that said to just write “and guest” on the card.

While your situation IS extremely frustrating, and it’s maddening that everyone keeps changing the count AFTER EVERYTHING IS DONE…why can’t YOU call your uncle and ask for his date’s name? As the bride, it’s your job to track down RSVPs, not your mother’s — especially when your mom has already proven that she doesn’t have the guts to do it.

Why can’t you call him yourself and ask her name?

@GreenEyedMoon: Hand-write it. Print out “and guest” in the proper font on a regular sheet of paper, scribble on the back with a pencil (make sure you’ve got a nice dark grey layer of graphite), and then trace the words onto the escort card & darken it to the proper colour with a felt pen afterwards.

@GreenEyedMoon: Just put an extra seat beside your uncle and call it a day. Her food is already paid for, your uncle is depressed and you are loosing it over your uncle’s rebound girl:0) Leave it alone, put an extra chair and call it a day. I would not go buy new escort cards and all that.
