We got an RSVP from one of FI’s cousins and on the M_____ line it just had the last name and that they were declining. Well great, but have no clue which cousin it is, because they didn’t list a first name. WTF?
Fiance has a couple on his list that he works with the husband. We don’t hang out with them, but since so many other coworkers were invited, they got invited too. They RSVPed that just the wife is attending. That was another one that had me all WTF, because we’re not really friends. We speak to each other when we see each other out, but that’s it. If he couldn’t come, you’d think they’d both decline.
So what are some of your WTF RSVPs?

One from my VERY OWN great aunt, it has been years since our family has gotten together and I was hoping to see her at my wedding. Well, she sent an RSVP of No…and on the back of the card: “I have no idea why you invited me, I haven’t seen you in several years. Gift grabbing, perhaps???” Yes, THREE question marks. I cried that day, but then I got over it. She isn’t the nicest person, anyway :/

@gardenroses: wow that’s so sad.
On our RSVP cards we provided FOUR meal options: beef stroganoff, grilled chicken, grilled salmon in lemon sauce and a vegetarian pasta with roasted veggies. We had one quest RSVP yes with a note on the card that she didn’t like any of the meal options and that she would have a filet mignon instead. WTF?!

@Meowkers: Lol, shut up! Really!?
That makes me really sad. Something very similar happened to my bestie when she got married. She received a handwritten note from an aunt (someone estranged from her father). She had thought that by inviting estranged family, she could bring them back together (an olive branch mentality…). That didn’t work. The aunt wrote a horrible note telling her how selfish and self-absorbed she was to think she would come anywhere near her wedding. It was appalling.
I don’t have any crazy RSVPs (yet) but our friends are pretty funny. One of our friends crossed off “graciously accepts” and wrote in “F**K YEAH!” It made my day! 🙂

we got one back from FI’s aunt who put down a name we’d never heard before. For some reason she used a name no one in the family calls her. Good thing they were numbered!

@Meowkers: OMG, that’s awesome. The nerve of some people. This isn’t Burger King. You don’t get to have it your way!
Ugh, that’s horrible. Some people are just so negative.

The only WTF RSVP I’ve received so far was for my cousin and it’s a 2 parter. We only addressed the invite to her but she RSVPed 4 people. WTF? Then on the line that says M_______ she just wrote her name. So I have no idea who the other 3 people are. I’m guessing 2 are 2 of her 3 kids, but I don’t know if the 4th person is her date, one of the kids’ dates (I thought it was her son’s Fiance, but according to FB, they broke up), or if it’s her 3rd kid. WTF!?
I also recieved an RSVP from a climbing buddy who declined, but to make up for it, drew a bunch of stick figures climbing all over the RSVP card.

I got an RSVP from a former colleague of mine who I knew wouldn’t attend anyway, but she was still working when the invites went out, and I was already inviting everyone I workee with, so I didn’t want her to feel left out. Anyway, she declined, and I got this long note on the back that said she just mo Ed and was too busy planning her own wedding. Um, thanks?
I also got a lot without names on them, I didn’t know I was supposed to put numbers on the back of them. One of them was from our flower girl, the mom thought the husband sent it, he thought she sent it. Turns out the flower girl was so excited, sh just sent it back in the envelope without writing who it was or how many they were.

Some of these are cracking me up!
I haven’t gotten any yet, but my aunt did email me to tell me that my 29 year old cousin threw away my invitation because he thought that he didn’t have to RSVP if he wasn’t coming. He’s an A$$hole anyway, so i’m not heartbroken. I’m more annoyed that I waisted a stamp.

@gardenroses: Gosh, so sad. And here you were trying to be nice.
That is pretty funny. What did you select for her?
My FI’s aunt and uncle RSVPed for themselves, their son “and guest” (his girlfriend, apparently). Now, we didn’t give anyone open-ended +1s, but it’s actually ok numbers-wise for us if she comes. But I think it’s silly that they wrote “And Guest.” How am I supposed to make her placecard with that?!

@Fairy Penguin: Uh, you use your ESP to figure out the guest’s name… DUH! =op
