Hi! I got engaged June 2019. I wanted a small wedding in Vegas or Florida and my fiancé wanted a big wedding at home. So I said that's fine but not inviting people we don't know! We have been together for 13 years. Sorry but If I never met you, your the problem not me.
Fast Forward to now had all parents over to help address STDs. I gave them a list of people I thought they would invite and also with them adding to it over the past year and told them to get their addresses for STDs. If I don't have it for STDs then they are not getting invited to the wedding because I have none of his families address. I bought a hard cover address book to put everything in so invites it can just be my fiancé and I.
His dads girlfriend asked months ago to invite her mom. Yes that's fine. She asked a few months back can she invite her siblings. Sure? After the parent get together I looked and she added all these people I have no idea! HER cousins from another state and today she is still texting me names and address!!!!! I even flat out said if I don't know these people they aren't invited. "Well i dont want them mad at me for not inviting them" IM SORRY i dont know these people and with covid im trying to stop from having a 300 guest wedding. We are at 220! (My venue fits 600 so cant use that as an excuse).
His mom shows up with ZERO addresses and tells me she's been "busy". Okay - we've been engaged for a year and half. I asked a month notice. I told you what today was about why do you not have any addresses. Cant complain to much as she called everyone and got the addresses that night! but asked on the phone "well were doing STDs would you want to come"? okay no that sounds rude as for a simple address!
Then I have my family who is moving out of state next week and my mom googled everyone's addresses and put it on the envelopes and not on her sheet of paper... lol OKAY if its not in the hard address book then how the heck are they getting an invite. so I had to go threw her stack of envelopes. Hope the address are correct...…
Then I had one of my bridesmaids(cousin) sneak her besties address in my envelopes.. Again how are you going to sneak that if Its not in the hard book she's not getting an invite..
OMG why me. ON TOP of all this my fiancé ditched and went to the casino with his dad. I'm ready to scream at him for not being there and his family has added to our guest list. and tons of people I don't know. I've wasted stamps now and its a big ugly mess.
