My mom called me just this afternoon to tell me that she has a couple of orders from people telling her what they wanted to eat at the reception. Great! I think, more work getting done. But no, not so great. She invited a friend of hers that she has asked me if she could invite about a week or two ago and I said no because we’re really cutting it close on the number of people coming. I don’t want more than 50 because if we have more, then the table arrangements are totally changed which mucks up the centerpieces which I’ve already paid for… Either way, we can’t have more than 55 people total. If everyone still on the maybe list says yes, we’re at 53. So yeah, I told my mom I didn’t want her to invite her friend because I don’t even know this lady and I was trying to have a smaller wedding with only people we’re close to. I know my mom is helping pay for the wedding so I don’t have a much of a choice, but it’s just so frustrating! She said if we go over she will call my aunt and tell her that my cousin can’t bring his date (granted, they’ve only been boyfriend and girlfriend for maybe 2 months by the time the wedding comes around). But still. And she wants to bring a date of her own and she keeps telling me she found a date, then she’ll go back on it cause things aren’t working out with her and the guy, but then she’ll find someone else. We’re currently back to "maybe" for that and I don’t even want her to bring a date either because she’ll be at the head table and her date most definitely will not be. It’s not like she doesn’t know anyone else at the wedding…My brother plans on bringing a date as well, a girl he dated in high school whom he still loves, but she broke up with him quite a few years ago. They still talk, but absolutely nobody in my family likes her except for him and he keeps INSISTING there will be room for her next to him, at the head table! I’m sorry, but there is just no way this girl is going to be at the head table with us. It’s supposed to be an honor and the girl herself didn’t even like me or my family when the two of them were going out! My brother said "she won’t go if she’s not sitting next to me" and my fiance and I are just thinking "good riddance!" It’s not my brother’s wedding, it’s my fiance’s and mine. If she doesn’t want to be there to celebrate with us and only with my brother, imo, she doesn’t need to be there! I’m trying to keep the peace since he’s one of my fiance’s two best men, but there is just no way, no how that she will be at the head table and if she doesn’t want to go because she’s not next to my brother, I would be thrilled. I don’t think I’m being a bridezilla about this stuff, but maybe I am, idk. It’s just so irritating and frustrating. Sigh. Only 29 days to go!
