Well today is the day, our RSVP deadline! We have had about 92% of our guests have sent us their RSVP, we have contacted the rest and have given them till the end of the day. Out of the ones that have sent their RSVP we have only received 8 no's! For the longest time we were at 100% yes and I can't lie I was kinda excited to see that first no, not because I didn't want them to attend but because I hate being the centre of attention so less people the better for me.
I am so glad that it is the deadline, RSVP's have been extremely stressful especially this past week because we still had a lot of guests not send them. A few guests had actually got me pretty PO'd. A few didn't bother to actually tell us they would not be attending until I asked them yesterday..makes me wonder if I hadn't asked if they would have just completely avoided telling me?? Earlier on we also had a situation like this. A family friend of my FH said he wasn't sure if he would be able to attend as his cousin is getting married the same day but he hadn't received in invite or anything. Eventually he did get in touch with his cousin and was actually standing in the wedding, that's fine but he tells my FH's mom and she never told us. We asked her about him and right away she says, No, he wont be there he is standing in a wedding in Miami.....okay but how long had she known about this and did she plan to tell us?? These are just little things and I'm not losing sleep over it but it is still extremely annoying it takes less than a minute to send the email and say, Sorry, I can't attend the wedding.
But now we can put all that nonsense behind us because its our deadline and now I can focus on the seating plan.
As of Wednesday May 1st we will be 1 month from the big day and I feel so overwhelmed and so excited! Planning is pretty much done, there isn't really much else to do until we get to Ontario next month. I can't believe its almost done and our wedding is so close!!
