So I couldn't get to sleep last night because of the dreaded wedding worries. (by 2:30, i popped in the rundown and was asleep in no time. why do we have it? well, in our defense, it's not ours and it was forced on us ;-)
So what was it last night? Why guest list issues of course. Now, I know I would be having the same problems if I was in charge, but as someone who likes to have control, I am of course having trouble with not having too much control. Sure, I have some control, but nothing is in front of me, I don't have all the information, so I have a hard time answering questions. Plus..WHY OH WHY when there is only one name on the invitation and no one has even hinted to you that you can bring a guest, would you RSVP for two? Wouldn't you at least think to call first? Or email? As well, why do you RSVP for three when there are only two names on the invite? My goal was to make the invitations dummy proof but I knew before they were even out that they weren't...but that's just the way it was going to work.
I know, it's crappy and confusing for everyone...but we have such limited space in the reception room. And I'm NO GOOD at saying no. I want everyone to be able to come. I feel guilty when people don't get invited...I hate telling people that we don't have room for their kids or their boyfriend of a week or their friend or....
But I guess I'll have to suck it up and do it (or get someone else to) because there are two people that were left off the list that really should be invited.
Sorry for the rant. I'll try not to let it happen again.
The sad thing is, we may have two extra spaces because it's possible that my grandparents won't be able to fly in. My grandfather has been in the hospital (still is? I don't know the updated information) and no one is sure if he'll be in good enough health to come. Does anyone have a video camera so that we can at least send them a copy?
