Yeah, my great aunt is a real peach. She rarely says things that aren’t critical. She and my late grandmother always had this theory that my dad only married my mom because she was pregnant. This great aunt would always tell me that my curly hair was “tacky”, and that I needed to straighten it. Guess who else has naturally curly hair? my mother, and it’s beautiful. Well, here my parents are now, happily married for 26 years πŸ™‚ I sometimes wish my family were as close-knit as my DH’s, but then I realize that his family is my family now πŸ™‚

@MadameTussaud: Oh, of course. Considering I have yet to meet anyone on that side of his family, that should have been an easy one. lol. There have been a number of times during the course of wedding planning that all I can do is shake my head…

Luckily we haven’t received any crazy rsvp’s. But we have received about 10 no names, thank goodness I wrote their names in black light ink.

We got an RSVP from one of FI’s friends; he and his wife have two kids. There was a corner ripped off, and they drew an arrow pointing to it and wrote “sorry, the baby was hungry!” They RSVPd yes πŸ™‚

ETA: we, too, have received two RSVPS just listing “2” on the Attendees line, no names. That will be a fun treasure hunt after our RSVP deadline!

@Crindy:  LOL!! That’s too cute and funny, about the hungry baby! 

Yeah, those no-name RSVPs were a pain!

I received a reply on which the person had checked the “will attend” line but did not write his or her name on the M._________________ line.

I was a fairly good detective as I struggled to determine who may have send it.  I first looked at the post mark to indicate the general area from which it had been mailed, and I also noticed that the check mark was made backwards.  I theorized that the person may have been left-handed. I’m thankful that, based on those two clues, I was able to make a guess, and it turns out that I was correct.

I had to resort to checking post marks on a few…(uncle/cousin, same name!)

@MsMindle:  Haha! The “f*ck yeah” one’s pretty awesome!

That is so sad for your bestie πŸ™ I was essentially doing the same thing, and it backfired terribly. In retrospect, I don’t think my aunt would have had a good time, and being her choice to say what she did, at least I have the satisfaction that I invited her because I truly wanted her there, as family. It blows my mind how rude a person can be!

Love the f*ck yeah one!!

 

We got one back that beside the picture of chicken for the meal choice the female guest who is notorious for her penis comments had crossed out the chicken and scrawled “make mine a cock” …I randomly laughed for the next two days.

I got a directions card back in the RSVP envelope.  It was covered in pink glittery lipstick. Turns out it was a friend of mine’s daughter who was playing mail man with her grandma, and her grandma thought the rsvp was filled out by my friend and that she already put it in the mailbox. Too funny.

My FI’s aunt (whom I’ve never met since she’s kind of estranged from the family) did not RSVP by the deadline. He facebook messaged her (since we don’t have her phone number) to confirm whether she was coming or not and she just responded “Oh thanks so much for the invitation.” WTF does that mean? Are you coming or not lady?  She still has yet to respond to his follow-up message. It may just be a surprise wether they show up or not…

We invited FI’s aunt and gave her five seats. She sent back in the RSVP card with the “5” crossed out and replaced with an “8”! Turns out she was also replying for her grown son and his wife and kid. The son and his family don’t live with FI’s aunt and had gotten their own invite anyway! The weirdest part of all this was that FI’s aunt asked us if she should RSVP for her son, we told her no, then she did it anyway. Odd…

@dkacerek:  The “happy notes” on the RSVPs are my favorite part. I never even thought to write a note to the bride and groom on past RSVPs I’ve sent it. From now on, I’m always including a “happy note”! πŸ™‚

@gardenroses:  Seriously, you are the bigger, better person in all of it. And I’m glad that you are being welcomed into the fold of a family that isn’t critical of you!! I’ve always wanted curly hair…the grass is always greener, right?!!
