I am getting married in one month from today woohoo! But as RSVP's have been coming in we've experienced a few people either listing a plus one on their RSVP card (without even asking) or a few others who asked if they can bring a friend instead of their boyfriend or for instance I have another friend who got in a new relationship and asked if she can bring him. My fiance and I have been trying to accomodate as best as possible but we both are shocked people don't really have the tact these days.
I was SO irked today when a friend of my fiance RSVP'd and she listed "+1" on the RSVP with meal selection. She didn't even reach out to us and ask. So at this point how do we tactfully tell her? I will say that our wedding is out of town for everyone, but when I was single and invited to weddings I didn't think to just bring a random someone, I would just go or not go. We are offering guests to those with significant others, and then family who are single and wedding party. We've made a couple exceptions as is for a couple of friends but they are good friends, where this guest was former co-worker.
Maybe I just need to vent lol. But I was shocked!! On the other end, it's amazing how people do not RSVP on time. I made our deadline 1 month out on purpose because I knew people would lag. So have a feeling we will have to call those who haven't RSVP'd.
