5 days till our wedding and I’ve had
*2 friends call and ask if they can bring a date (one who RSVPed late, and one who didn’t even bother)
*one of my mom’s friends (who I don’t really know) asked to bring her 11 y.o. son (it’s a really small wedding, btw)
*then a friend called to make sure we’re not doing assigned seating, because 2 of our guests don’t get along with his fiance
*and then one of our bulk flower companies called to say they’ll be delivering our flowers a day early, when I won’t have anyone to sign for them…..
I wish I could hire a representative to answer all questions for me – like maybe Amy Pohler and Seth Myers to do their “Really??” segment…oh, that would be nice.

awww so sorry take a deep breath your almost there. stick to your guns about extra guests if you can afford to have them then you can’t have them. everything else will seem small on day of. The flowers sounds like the biggest problem hopefully you can find someone. hugs!

I’m sorry!! I’d just stop answering the phone, that way you don’t have to feel bad for saying no or they just don’t get their question answered and assume its a NO!! Hope it works work, just breathe and remember this is supposed to be your happiest day! Congrats in advance!

I think I’m with jingle96…maybe the phone needs to be shut off so you don’t lose it! I know I would!

I think the answer to all those ques ..would be NO ..no you can’t bring a date , No you can’t bring your son, whom i do not know ..No i am not arranging the seating because Your fiance doesn’t like them…once everyone gets to eating/drinkin /dancing ..noone gong to care about seating , AND no you can’t come early since noones going to be there to sign for them , and it wasn’t mentioned earlier .. That is how i would answer them all ..Now tell them all to leave you the hell alone , so you can relax 🙂

make those extra guests do your bidding with these last minute vendor mix ups – that’ll teach them to not RSVP etc. 😉

Deep breath! You’ll make it… just be sure to delegate/ask for help when you need to – or when you just don’t want to deal.
(hugs and early congrats!)

That’s so annoying! I really think people fail to realize what an inconvenience these things are when you’re already really busy and have a lot to deal with. You’re probably better than me because I’d be like, I don’t care who doesn’t get along wiht your girlfriend, you’re not delivering the flowers earlier than we planned, no your son can’t come and your boyfriends can’t come unless they give a very nice gift lol. Ok, I talk a good game when its anonymous, but in real life I’m a sucker. Hope it all smooths itself out.

I’m sorry to hear that you are having some problems. I too would probably want to say that those extra people couldn’t come but I’m a bit of a pushover and I always want to make others happy so I would probably let them come. I’m sure everything will turn out wonderfully in the end and that you will have a fabulous wedding!! Congratulations!
