Would you be upset???

I am throwing a Baptism party for my son in 2 weeks.. I had sent out all the invitations and put my number for the RSVP.. My husband's family called my MIL to RSVP... No where on the invitation has her number... It bugs me that they cant call me.. Also in January my mother had a baby shower for me and they once again called my MIL.. Would you ladies be mad or am I mad for no reason???

  • I would wonder why? It is a bit off to me that they don't call you directly. Maybe have a talk with your MIL about it.

  • Don't know that I'd be mad but its wierd for sure. Maybe call them directly and say I haven't heard from you - Are you coming? And if they say we called your MIL say "Oh well I was keeping track of the guest lists and I was pretty sure I put my number on the invite, but I'm glad you are coming" Keep it light and gloss over it quickly, but they should get the point for the future and there won't be any hard feelings.

  • at least they called someone....instead of leaving you holding extra places/food/etc for people that just didn't show.

  • I think I agree with Traleelai's idea. I don't know that I would be mad, exactly, but aggravated for sure and I'd have to wonder why.

  • i would be very frustrated. How are you supposed to plan for the number of guests attending if they dont let YOU Know. Have a talk with your MIL and ask why they are rsvping to her then make sure there is only enough cake for those who called YOU to rsvp LOL j/k thats not a good thing to do at a baptism but maybe you could have your hubby mention to his family that that is rather frustrating for you and even a little hurtful
