We had a line on our RSVP cards asking “What song will get you on the dance floor?” We had one friend who left the M_______ blank and requested “Straight Out Of Compton” LOL! Turns out it was fiance’s best man being silly.

My favorite was the friend who filled in the song request with “Alcohol… only lots & lots of alcohol will get me on the dance floor!”

None of ours were as entertaining as some of yours, but here’s what we got:

-Lots of no names.  Luckily I put numbers on the back to figure out who they are.

-Lots of people checking the “yes” box, but not indicating how many are attending (___of___ guests part was left blank)

-One of FI’s old colleagues wrote his name and his brand new girlfriend, even though we clearly indicated the invitation was for him only.  He thinks that our wedding would be the perfect time to debut themselves as a new couple.  Fantastic.  By The Way no one has ever heard of her ever, or even known he had a Girlfriend.

-Quite a few super cute notes on the back, like how they didn’t want to send the RSVP back because it was too cute, or funny little inside jokes and stories.

I haven’t had any crazy ones like you guys, just people who where only invited themselves and RSVPed for two people. Then you have to tell them have the awkward conversation to why they can’t bring a guest. ugh.

@starfish0116:  My mom’s friend is doing this.  Bringing another one of my mom’s girlfriends as her date.  I am so annoyed by it.  But, I figure we have the space and factored her in as bringing a date, so whatever.

One of FH’s friend wrote, “Just me, but I can eat for 4” on the M______.  No name haha.  Also, a family friend sent their RSVP to our venue!  They literally peeled off the label that had our address on it & handwrote the venue’s address haha.  WTF?!

We received two pretty good ones:

– My mom had me invite a 3rd or 4th cousin from my Dad’s side of family that I don’t know. Her RSVP had specified that 2 spots would be reserved for her should she attend. She took white out and put it on the “2,” wrote in the number 3, wrote the names of the other people she intended to bring, and then checked the “regretfully decline” box!!!  (What was the point of that?!)

– A member of my fiance’s family also decided to add two other people’s names to their RSVP card and wrote in that “3 of 1 will be attending.” Fiance has no idea who the other people are.

 

Also, of all the invites we sent out, only about 5 of the RSVPs came back filled out correctly. Drives me crazy!
