Répondez s’il vous plaît!

I think one of the most stressful and, at the same time, most laugh trip-filled part of our wedding preparation is when we started to message people about their attendance. I compiled some funny RSVP answers we received on this post. Don’t get angry ha if your response is here. Trip-trip lang ‘to! 😀

Funny Wedding Invitation Responses

Daddy A: Hi! I would like to confirm if you will make it on our wedding on October 12?
Friend: Congrats!

Daddy A: Bok, punta kayo sa wedding namin sa October 12! [Obviously, isa ito sa mga 09. As promised, I won’t name names. Haha!]
Friend: Yung dati pa rin ba yan, bok? [Isang proof na chick boy ang mga ‘to! Maging alerto, 09 wives! :))]

Daddy A: Tol pupunta ka ba sa wedding sa October 12?
Friend: Confirm ko sa’yo sa October 11 ha?

Me: Makakapunta po ba kayo sa wedding?
Guest: Ano isusuot ko? Saan namin iiwan mga bata? [Pati ba ‘to problema namin? Haha!]

Me: Will you be able to attend our wedding?
Guest: Depende… [Saan?! Depende saan?!]

Coordinator: I’m calling to confirm your attendance on Kim and Arjay’s wedding…
Friend: May emergency eh… [Pero wag ka, pagbukas namin ni Daddy A ng Instagram nakikipag-inuman lang. Haha! Huli ka!]

Hindi kami makatawa ni Daddy A during this time. At some point, nainis kami sa ibang relatives and friends namin bilang pakiramdam namin hindi kami importante sa kanila (to think that we invited them–not other people–because they are important to us). BUT, we decided to just let it go. Sabi nga namin, kung ayaw pumunta… edi ‘wag!

To all who responded with clear answers, to all who came despite the rain, and to all who still attended even with very short notice… thank you so much! We really appreciate the effort!

    Oh, I’m not keen on attending parties which is the reason why I don’t usually host parties too. 🙂

    oh, i can relate to most of the responses. haha, it reminds me of how stressed we were over RSVPs when we were preparing for the wedding. which is why sineseryoso ko talaga ang RSVP sa invites. if i can’t come, i say so immediately, para hindi na mastress ang nag-invite.
    hey, i gave you a sunshine award on my blog. check it out ha! http://www.pinkandmints.com/2013/10/good-vibes-sunshine-award.html

      Oh! Wow! Thanks, Ays! 🙂 We take RSVPs seriously, too. We know how it feels kasi pag ininvite mo tapos hindi pupunta without advising you.

    Riiight, confirm on the 11th for an event on the 12th. I can totally relate to this post! Gives me flashes of our own wedding preps.

      Diba? Sana kung hindi makakapunta, sabihin na lang. Some guests naman told us to our face that they’re coming, but when the coordinators followed up on their attendance a few days later, biglang di na pupunta. Kaya nga sabi namin ni Daddy A pag nainvite kami sa wedding, pupunta talaga kami. Kawawa rin kasi yung couple.

    Awww. When that happened to a friend. I took weddings very seriously na. At first, di ko naiintindihan kasi di ako ‘wedding’ person. Pero yung tipong out of 150 people na iinvite, e isinama ka. Malaking privilege pala sya. Na may mga drinop na people sa list, para ikaw ang magtake ng slot.

    1. Mom On Duty

      That’s very true! Couples can only invite a limited number of guests so people should be nice enough to at least inform the couple if they can’t come so they can invite other people. We paid for 250 guests, our caterer only served 171 people. Imagine all the left over food! But anyway- we’re just glad that those who came, came. 🙂

    Haha! Fuma-Fashion Pulis at may blind items. Uhm, pwede ko bang bukingin na isa ako sa nandiyan? 😀 Ganda ng wedding mo muther, especially the bride. Sad that I’ve missed it.

    1. Mom On Duty

      Sino ka dyan, girl?! Buti nga ikaw agad nagsabi na hindi pwede. Compared naman dun sa 11th pa nagconfirm.

  6. TheMudrabelle

    I know how you feel. Ganyan din ako noong birthday ni Y saka nung kasal namin. 🙁

    1. Mom On Duty

      Natuwa kami muther nung nakapunta kayo. At least may representative ang bloggers haha.

    Masama loob ko di umattend wedding niyo. Nakahanda pa naman na ang isusuot ko nun at anu look ng make up ko!

    Pero alert sa “dati pa ba?” na tanong ha. Haha! Kulit lang!

    1. Mom On Duty

      It’s okay, muther! 🙂 Yes- alerto dapat!
