- Wedding: August 2012
I knew FI’s guest list was going to be an issue, I just knew it from the beginning. My list = solid! His list = flakier than a pillsbury crescent roll.
Mind you the wedding is less than a week away, final payments have been made to the venue along with counts, placecards and seating assignments have been made. The placecards were done in calligraphy as a favor by someone I won’t see until way after the wedding, so they CAN’T be changed. Also FI’s friends are about a 6 hour drive away.
I get a text yesterday that one of the BM’s asked if he could bring his gf and Fiance said yes. GF whom Fiance didn’t know anything about until yesterday. I was like uh no final arrangements have been made so no changes. Fiance was like “we didn’t pad the numbers?” Uh no not at what we’re paying a plate. The money tree in my backyard is suffering through a drought. Fiance says okay I’ll tell him. I find out today that Fiance explained this to the Bridesmaid or Best Man, that basically this Girlfriend wouldn’t have a plate. Bridesmaid or Best Man said “Oh that’s okay we can share!” And Fiance was okay with this rationale. REALLY?!?!?!?!?!? SHARE?!?!?!?! This isn’t your Aunt’s Susan’s potluck BBQ, this is a freakin wedding.
But wait there’s more: Apparently two of his friends may not be coming and Fiance has yet to hear a word of this even though he just saw that friend this weekend and spoke to the other friend 2 weeks ago!!! He heard it from the other Bridesmaid or Best Man. Uh were they just not going to show up? Bad enough we had to chase them down for the RSVP but then they just weren’t going to come? So $150 down the drain like that?? Fiance is calling them tomorrow.
So if those two people don’t show up then the +1 situation of the Bridesmaid or Best Man is taken care of. Chicky won’t have a placecard like everyone else it will be really obvious that she was a last minute addition. If those two people do come, then there’s a problem.
I told Fiance “Have these people never been to a wedding?” Then had the nerve to get pissy with me. I was like “uh don’t get an attitude with me it’s YOUR friends causing the problems not me!!”
THEY’RE SO FREAKIN RUDE!!!!
