Wedding guest's insanely rude RSVP infuriates bride

It’s no secret that weddings aren’t cheap so many people are forced to cut plus ones from their guest list.

However, despite one bride and groom-to-be sending out an invite which specifically gave their guest a plus one for the big day, the guest replied, accepting the invitation for 21 people.

The bride got such a shock at the response that she took a photo of it and posted it to Reddit, where people were obviously outraged on her behalf.

“Yeah let me just RSVP for TWENTY ONE+ MORE PEOPLE,” she wrote online.

In the picture, the guest has written that there will be 16 adults and three kids attending, alongside her and her plus one, with all the names blurred out for their privacy.


The guest even put down the ages of the children, with all of them under the age of six.

On the invitation, the guest was asked to provide the name of a song that they promise they will get up and dance to at the reception and of course, they gave two.

“Please tell me this is a joke!! Right...?!?” one person commented on the Reddit thread.

“I would circle ‘decline’ and send it back,” another said.

Another commented: “That’s when you call them and say ‘sorry you couldn’t make it!’”

A third shared: “The next thing this person would receive would be a call telling them to not bother.

“Sure, you could just clarify that the others can’t come, but then you risk them sulking about it the whole wedding.

“Better to just avoid this mess altogether.”

And a fourth added: “I'm so shocked, that's all I have. Just...the audacity of some people. Why would they think this is ok??”

It is unclear whether the bride accepted their RSVP or not...
