RSVP drama never ends



STILL HAVING ISSUES WITH RSVPING!  I just don't get people.  One girl has been telling me for the last two weeks...every day she tells me "oh I'll know tonite if my date is coming..." and she STILL hasn't updated me.  She's been also asking about the hotel and said she'll book...today she asked me "what's the name of the hotel again?...and what town?"  She's making me nuts!  What was the point of it being on the website and the rsvp card and in an email I sent her last week if she STILL DOESN'T HAVE IT!  It just makes me feel like people don't care to keep track of these details!  I kind of flat out told her she's making me crazy.


I mean she's been to a wedding before so she should understand deadlines and stuff you know?  I mean what if I didn't give myself this buffer and we needed to give the final headcount already? I just don't get people.  I don't think I should be so stressed about this stuff you know?  Either come or don't come.  Either book a hotel or don't but do you really need me to hold your hand through the whole process?!


Another couple just kept putting it off because they were saying they had to find a babysitter...they've know about our reception for 5 months now and now they're scrambling for a babysitter?  I know its hard and I'm not trying to be heartless but come on!  Did you wait to find a sitter until AFTER the RSVP date?


Sorry...I know this should be expected but its like making me nuts!!!!!  Like I don't have enough to worry about?!

Sigh...and now today...we just got a cancellation VIA EMAIL...3 weeks before our reception...that a couple can't make it even though she's been telling me for months...since the save the date went out...that they would be there.


Now she tells me in an email she has to go to some outreach function for a church she's starting with some other people and its on the same day as our reception and she has to be there instead.  I know stuff comes up and everything but its just frustrating.  They wouldn't understand that she has a prior commitment?????????


And not only that but we're short 10 people (now 12) from our min anyways so that sucks that we have to pay that anyways...its always something.

My wedding is 12/21/10 - the week of Christmas so I made sure to tell everyone EARLY and send the STD's 6 months early and my cousin just told me she cant make it even tho she has been saying all along she will come....she cant get off of work....which is the main reason I told everyone early!!


The messed up part is that she got engaged AFTER me and got married last month and of course I dragged my FI there (1.5hrs away) because I wanted her to do the same for us!


People suck. But I feel like whatever, I had fun with family at her wedding and if she really doesnt want to come to mine, I dont want her there!

Yeah I know what you mean!  I'm trying to be whatever about it too but sometimes its hard when so much work goes into planning your day (as I'm sure you know!) and people just kind of blow it off even though they've known about it for so long!! Its like what other people have been telling me..your wedding/reception will be a blast with or without them!

We had RSVP issues, too.  The main one being people inviting more people - that weren't invited!


Then, we had like 10 no-shows - only 2 of which bothered to notify us the morning of the wedding. The other 8 I have still not heard from - two months later! No apology or nutin'.


sheesh!
