What was your worst experience with guests at your wedding (or before or after)? I love to hear these, they make me laugh!
I have three...
- One just no-showed. No apology, no text or call. Liked all our wedding pictures, didn't say anything about not coming? He also didn't send in his RSVP so we had to reach out TWICE to which he said "Oh yeah! Of course I'm coming"....What???
- An entire family left BEFORE THE RECEPTION. We are talking 5 adults and 2 kids. Over $700 worth of food & drinks & dessert & linens & china. So crazy! The mom sent me a half-a** apology the next day (none of the other 4 adults said anything) saying her husband has type 2 diabetes and got hungry so they had to leave. What????? Our cocktail hour started at 6:15 and we had 4 passed appetizers & a stationary appetizer (plenty of meat, carbs, cheese, veggies, fruit, etc.). Guests sat at 7 to a plated salad on the table, and ate by 7:30? What were they expecting? It was two older adults (60s or so) and their 3 adult children. The older adults gave us a card & some cash, nothing from the 3 adult kids even though they are all over 30 and two have children of their own. I am still super offended and have no interest in future contact with them. Also, we had two other adults with type 1 diabetes, they managed to bring insulin AND eat before the wedding AND bring a small snack (like they always do because they obviously KNOW THEY HAVE DIABETES).
- A woman invited to my shower, said she was attending, told my mom the morning of she couldn't go. She bought a Shark Steam Vac ($70 or so), never gave it to us. Said several times she would drop it off at my house or my moms, never did. Bought us a wedding present, came to our wedding. No Steam Vac....so I texted her asking about it almost 4 weeks post wedding (we bought the rest of our Amazon registry after the wedding) and she said "I'm so sorry, I gave it away. I actually bought one for myself too. Your wedding was beautiful though." So she straight up just kept the vacuum for herself and is currently using it! What the...! Her buying it & not giving it to us made it so no one else bought it for us. Our registry had an option to ship it to our house, and she lives 30 minutes from us. INSANE.
I can't wait to hear your stories!
