Our final head count was due last week. Since then, about SEVEN people have let us know that they won't be able to make it. It is so f'ing frustrating and thank god we are doing consumption bar so I haven't already paid these people's booze. But not only have I paid for these people's food, 7 people is almost an entire extra table. I could have rented an entire table less.
The last straw was the email I got just now.
The excuse: Wife now can't make it, because they decided to get soccor tickets for the next day, which for some reason now means they need to bring their kids with them on this trip to our wedding, and since we are having a no kids wedding, she'll need to stay in the hotel with the kids during our reception. So basically, hey, I RSVPed a couple weeks ago, but decided now that it would be more fun to instead go to a soccor game.
The BEST part of the email was this: "Just wanted to let you know ASAP so if there was someone you wanted to invite in her place, you'd have time."
OUR WEDDING IS IN NINE DAYS. ALSO, WHAT?
I can't take it with these people. Also, every single person who has flaked in the past week is from FIs side, which makes me even angrier. I realize I am being completely insane right now, but I am so frustrated and want to punch things.
