Our AHR was this weekend & I have to vent....

Our AHR was this past Saturday. We had over 150 RSVP's. We made food for 150. Guess how many DID NOT show up? 70.
YES - 70 freakin people did not show up. Half of the people who said they would be there showed up..the others didn't. I am mad because we paid for ALL OF THAT FOOD! MY GOD - we threw food away and it was so wasteful because we had no more room in our vehicles to put the stuff. It was insane!
The majority of the people were from my dad's family. I knew ahead of time that they can not be counted on but we gave them the benefit of the doubt and still got screwed. It was disgusting the amount of food that was left over. We froze a lot and gave a lot away, but the thought that people were so freakin rude that they couldn't show up just burns me.
I know where we stand with them and they have been permanantely moved off of any future invite lists we have. We worked so hard and spent hundreds of $$$'s and people dont even have the decency to call to say they couldn't make it or their plans changed.
I'm glad our wedding is over and having an AHR is my biggest regret. My dad's family had a party the night before for one of my aunts - I almost feel like they did it on purpose as an excuse not to wake up and go to our brunch on Saturday. Screw them - they can all go to hell as far as I'm concerned!

If you ever have another party, just invite the BDW gals! I hope that the BDW community can cheer you up if nothing else..
