I am sooo grateful that I have had relatively little RSVP drama. There is only 1 thing that came up, that I thought I’d share.
So, FI’s mom has many, many cousins. For one of them, we sent an invite to her, her husband, and her 2 kids. We didn’t give a +1 to the children of his mom’s cousins, unless they were married, because we just didn’t have enough space, and we don’t even know them well enough to know whether they’re in a relationship or not. I understand that this is etiquette taboo in some opinions.
So this cousin asked Fiance if her daughter (college) can bring her bf. He told her that we were currently over the limit that the venue could handle, but we would let her know if any space opened up. It turned out we did have 6 extra spots after we got all the RSVPs back, so Fiance let her know that this bf is welcome to come. She emails back and says, great! He will probably miss the ceremony, but he would love to be at the reception.
Of course he would love the be at the reception! It’s free food and drinks! And of course he doesn’t care about the ceremony…he doesn’t even know us!
Honestly, I am not even that mad about it. This family is really sweet, and I’m sure they don’t realize this is kind of irksome. I was actually just excited to get a small dose of drama that I could share with you guys :o) Also, interesting how the etiquette tables have turned on me!
