‘Nothing I can do now’: Bride calls out wedding guest’s ‘ridiculous’ RSVP

A fuming bride expressed her grievances about a controversial RSVP from a wedding guest who added another person to the form without asking the soon-to-be newlyweds.

Frustrated, the bride uploaded an image of the RSVP form to a Facebook bridal group, revealing the guest’s actions.

“Anyone else deal with ridiculous RSVPS?” she captioned the post, as reported by The New York Post.

“I guess I should have been more clear but for a backstory, this is a family friend on my fiance’s side.”

Her fiance’s family friend marked “joyfully accepts” but revised the number of people in her family that were invited to the event, increasing her allotted four seats to “4 + baby” on the form.

Aside from the infant interloper, the guest also made a special note about dietary restrictions.

“Don’t worry about (my husband) with his celiac (sic) disease. He’ll eat before the wedding – and baby will eat from my plate,” they wrote.

The bride, already in distress, tried to be understanding about the large family.

“She has kids from three different men including her current husband. So I asked her how many she thinks are coming and she told me four – including her one-year-old baby,” the bride explained.

Despite the bride’s thorough efforts, the guest later decided four wasn’t enough for the family, so they added another member to the RSVP invite.

“She included her husband’s child from a previous relationship and like I don’t even know her husband well enough to have HIS child from someone else come,” the bride said.

“She never told me that the child was coming with them. I’m just annoyed.”

Although the newlyweds understood most venues don’t designate seats for children under two, the bride said she wished the family friend would have asked for an additional guest instead of assuming it wouldn’t be an issue.

“Nothing I can do now,” she said.

While a few Facebook group members agreed with the bride – urging her to mitigate tension by reaching out to the guest in question to confirm seat count – others backed the actions of the family friend.

“Yikes, if you invite the family then you invite the whole family,” one wrote.

“If you didn’t want kids there, you should have said so.”

“It’s not a child-free wedding, and it would be very unkind to welcome all but one of the children in that family. Seriously unkind,” another said.
