Foul! Which guest deserves a flag on the play?

Which of your guests has committed a “flaggable” offense? Are they walking on thin ice for RSVPing for plus five, asking you to change your wedding date or time, or did they throw you a total curveball with bizarre complaints or requests?

    I am Jewish and FH is Catholic so we decided on a non-denominational wedding. FH’s grandma is constantly trying to get us to switch our officiant from our ordained friend to a priest. She doesn’t understand why that isn’t an option.

    The few guests who RSVP’d “yes” but then didn’t show up because they were “too busy.” 🤬

    Hi Alexandra! I can totally relate to this! My SO and I come from different denominations, and both of our families have opinions on our future in terms of religion. It's such a tough situation, but as long as you and your FH are comfortable and happy with your ceremony, then don't let others opinions get ya down!

    Oh no, that would make me upset as well!

    Right?! I didn’t but I really wanted to send them a bill for $100/plate. 😁

    Same boat! I’m Jewish and he’s catholic. We are still having his priest marry us, but it will be at our venue in a garden rather than a church, so there will not be a mass. That was something my grandma was bugging me about before the venue was picked. She was very against it being in a church because most of my side is Jewish.

    None so far! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my luck in this category continues.

    I sure hope all of your guests continue to be supportive! It's great that they have been so far!

    My dad offered to buy me a new car (which he can’t even afford to do) if I started going to Catholic Church again, got FH to convert, and got married in the church. Pretty sure he was drunk when he called me to say that but still it was pathetic. He keeps talking about how my wedding isn’t actually real if it’s not in the church and how I’m making him look bad and disobeying him

    My grandma keeps making her little comments. First about the wedding date, then about having assigned tables.

    This is so true! Grandmas can be really cool but then they get all old school on you. :-D

    Exactly! They have a certain way they like things to get done!

    My FSIL (and bridesmaid) asked us to invite her terrible, horrible, no good, very bad in-laws. (I'm going to because I love her - but ugh!!)

    I'm already having people try to invite themselves.

    We only just got engaged, and these are people I see *maybe* once a year.

    I've had two fouls that have irked me! One is FH's parents neighbors dropping hints every time we visit his family that they "will see us at the wedding" and "can't wait to get their invitation," but we aren't inviting them. The biggest foul of all time was getting randomly texted a list of "unacceptable dates" that we were not allowed to choose for our wedding date from FH's dads third wife.
