Some people completely lack etiquette...

Too bad you already sent the invites otherwise i would let his side throw their own shower because they are being so difficult. I feel sorry for your friend, she's gotta deal with this for the rest of her life.

Wow that is so tacky! I'm sorry that you have been burdened with it but I like your idea of leaving a few openings for the non-RSVPers and whatever that is downright rude for the mom to be so uncooperative! I don't know if the bride has said it but I will...thank you for being so nice and taking care of her hot mess family!

Thank you guys for listening. Her sisters, mother, and I have been stressing over this for weeks. Hopefully they will get their sh*t together and pick up the damn phone. I know its stupid to be worried about paying the extra $, but when 95 people are sent an invitation, the difference between who may show and who actually shows can be huge! 50 favors vs 95 favors is a difference of $100 right there. Forget about doubling the food, adding the extra tableware, etc.

Unfortunately, I think a lot of people no longer think it's necessary to RSVP which sucks! If I actually planned our AHR based on RSVPs, I'd probably cancel it due to lack of attendance, but I KNOW that most of the people we invited will come. Some of our closest friends haven't even RSVP'd. They just seem to think we'll expect them to show up. Oh well ...

Are you having trouble planning? Maybe I am making too much of this, but it seems like a big deal to me. My best friend and I planned our weddings a week apart, so her honeymoon would be my wedding. She has 3 kids, so there is no way she would have been able to have her honeymoon, then go away for my wedding within the same year. It has been hard on us both, since we need to pay for our own weddings, plus dresses to be in each others wedding. On top of that, I have her shower to pay for, the hotel the night of her wedding, hair and makeup for her wedding, etc. Thats why I think I'm so bent out of shape about it. Any other time i would say oh well if I spent extra. But at this point, a couple hundred dollars that gets wasted on the extra stuff is a pretty big deal.

Estella - it is a huge deal when that many people don't rsvp - you have every right to be pulling your hair out. I hope things are going better since your last post.

Thanks guys! Its so nice to have a safe place to vent. Unfortunately things actually got worse! The future MIL had it out with the groom yesterday and is threatening not to go to the wedding. Who know where that leaves us all with the shower now. I feel like the drama never stops. What a day...

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
