Planning your perfect day is extremely exciting, but it’s also extremely stressful. There are so many details that make up your wedding day, and these details need their own planning process, while also working perfectly with every other aspect of your big day. Of course, a wedding isn’t a wedding without guests, but what do you do when your guests don’t RSVP to your wedding?
First of all, it’s important to leave the panic at the door. Wedding planning is stressful enough without adding even more panic and stress into the mix, so try to avoid it entirely. We know that’s easier said than done, but keeping a clear head and being open to these changes is one of the best ways to cope with the struggle of invitations and RSVPs.
Give Them A Call
If your guests still haven’t responded to your RSVP by the date you asked them to, then it’s time to give them a call. At the end of the day, you have a wedding to plan, and that’s what you need to focus on. Instead of calling them with an accusatory tone in your voice, ask them politely whether they have received your invite. There’s every possibility that it was lost in the mail, and this phone call gives your guests the perfect opportunity to give you a straight answer.
Send Them An Email
Of course, not everyone answers their phone. If you can’t reach your guests, simply send them an email instead. Outline the fact that you need to have the answer, and give them an ultimatum. Let them know that they need to provide you with an answer before a specific date. Otherwise, you will assume that they are a “No.”
Now, it’s time to put your plan into action.
40+ Husbands Who Disappointed Their Wives In Ways They Didn’t Know Were Possible
Sometimes in a relationship, you have to divide up the duties and tasks. This is all part of a good relationship, but these tasks don’t always go as planned. The wives of the world know this very well. Sometimes these fails are pretty hilarious. So we thought we would share with you some moments where husbands have disappointed their wives in ways they didn’t even know were possible.
A Girl Never Tells Her Age
We all know that one of the biggest blunders you can make, no matter if you are a friend or a significant other, is to make a mistake with how old the woman is. Though if it is in her favor, that is acceptable.
But this poor husband went the other way and aged his wife a year. At least it was on a lovely bouquet of flowers. Even still, we are pretty sure he spent the night on the couch!
How nice would it be if your man took the time to pack your lunch? This would take one thing off your plate and free up a little coffee-sipping time in the morning. Who would be disappointed by that?
Well, this wife might be a little disappointed as her man packed her some moldy cheese and not the good kind! Maybe he thought it was still okay? Still, it isn’t an exciting thing to open up and see in your lunch.
Mistakes Were Made
We try to teach our kids about being careful when handling delicate things. But maybe we should concentrate on teaching husbands that very same lesson. If this wife had, she wouldn’t be looking at some destroyed biscuits.
When this husband started putting groceries up, the wife was for sure excited. That is until she saw this and had to rework her dinner plans. I hope everyone likes biscuits and gravy!
Free Range Fruit
Common sense seems to have abandoned husbands across the globe at some point or the other. At this moment, this husband thought that simply stacking the pineapple slices in the fridge without storing them in a container or bag was a good idea.
Clearly, this was his moment of common sense lapse. The pineapple might be dried out, but at least the fridge will smell good, though! Looking for the bright side!
New Mayo Needed
It is one thing to open up a new jar when the other is low. This can almost be excused…maybe you didn’t know. But opening up a brand new one when only a knife or two had been removed from the jar – that’s not on!
We wish we could have heard the husband’s reasoning when he had to answer to the scowl of his loving significant other. It needed to be really good to escape the wrath.
We can all understand why someone may want to evacuate the area when they look up and see something like this hanging from the ceiling. It is a valid response. Where we think this wife got a little disappointed was that her man left her behind.
Whatever happened to no one left behind? Clearly, this husband doesn’t subscribe to that theory! This is why he may be in the dog house for the rest of the day.
Birth Announcement Cancelled
When you are expecting a baby, it is an exhausting and exciting part of your relationship. So it is understandable why you would ask for some help from your significant other. Things like birth announcements and grocery runs are among the most common.
To this wife’s dismay of the two things, she asked if the most important one didn’t get done. Now she has to wonder if everyone knows she has given birth to her beautiful bundle of joy.
A cover helps keep the microwave clean and also helps heat up food more evenly. That is why most of us have one in this household appliance. So when something happens to it, you best be sure that everyone will eventually know.
So why wouldn’t this husband say something instead of sticking it in the microwave for his wife to find it? How disappointed she must have been when she saw this!
Doing Things the Hard Way
There is a clear spot for where the roll goes on the holder. It is a round cardboard opening that cannot be missed by anyone. Well, that is except for this husband. How could he get it so wrong?
Let’s hope he was doing this in the middle of the night in the dark and not just testing his lady’s patience. If that’s not the case, he will have to explain his thought process to her.
Hanging in There
The dog’s face, we are sure, is exactly what the face of this woman right now. We have a stinking suspicion that her husband did this on purpose so she wouldn’t ask him to do the laundry again.
After all, “hang the wash” and “hang the washer” are clearly two different sentences. He undoubtedly needs to get his hearing checked or his mental capacity because it seems crazy to disappoint his wife like this.
One of the most challenging things to do is put groceries away and do it so the fridge doesn’t look like a hot mess. It takes patience and a good eye for the use of space. Unfortunately for this woman, these don’t seem to be something her husband has.
We are sure she was pretty surprised when she opened the fridge to grab a snack and had to pull everything out just to find one. What a disappointing way to spend her day off!
Ripping It Up
So when you work for yourself, you still have to keep track of your paychecks and money that come in. so many people have a personal and business account where they move money between as a way to do just that.
Apparently, this man was very unhappy with what he had made last week and thought he would show his boss. His wife was a little disappointed too – not only with the money but also the fact he wasted a perfectly good check.
We understand you are very busy in the morning and that an extra step like taking the trash out could disrupt your morning routine. But you couldn’t just walk this trash bag down to the curb? That is pretty lazy!
Getting to the gas station and getting out to realize you had forgotten to do that is kind of karma. Now you have to find a place to drop it off. Maybe this will teach the husband a lesson.
Many ladies appreciate it when their husband or significant other do something special for them. Maybe that special something was making them dinner. That’s a nice surprise, but so is coming home to find this on the counter.
Heat and plastic don’t pair well together. We are sure that this woman may have been a little disappointed with this but loved the meal. But it was a learning moment for her fella, and so next time, he won’t set the cookbook on fire.
Some people are concerned with counting calories but still want a treat every now and then. So when this couple decides to eat out, we are sure this young lady asked for a small fries.
What she got back was a kid serving and a whole lot of attitude, we are sure. This is a big disappointment and one we are sure her partner quickly rectified. At least he was smart!
Where Is the Rest?
Just a quick tip from us to the husbands or partners out there…If your significant other asks you to bring them a snack from the kitchen, bringing them this would be inadvisable. They may think you are trying to say something.
This wife was very disappointed when she got her cookie and milk plate. The only way this guy would be saved was if this was all that was left, and then he better be putting his shoes on to make a grocery store run.
Always Check the Pockets
Most of us carry our phones in our pockets. That makes looking in pockets before doing the wash even more important than it was in the past. This gentleman clearly didn’t get the update to the rules of engagement.
The disappointment of the wife, though, was probably short-lived. After all, how long did it take her to realize now she could get an upgrade on him!
Careful With That
It takes a long time to knit a sweater and even longer to make sure it is just perfect for giving as a gift. This is one of those thoughtful gifts and one that needs to be taken care of with a little extra care.
Unfortunately, his guy didn’t know that. We just hope he shared the news with his lady and didn’t wait for her to find this shrunken sweater in his drawers. That would be very disappointing.
There are many types of paper towels available now. They come in multiple sizes and are perforated for different uses. But even with that, this woman clearly doesn’t feel the roll should be left like this, that is, unless her man is turning into someone who cares about the environment.
If this isn’t the case, then maybe he should be prepared for a little bit of a talking-to, especially if she has a touch of OCD.
One of the worst things any significant other can comment on is the weight of the other person in the relationship. This could set off a third world war that the husband may never make it out of.
But if you are clever and fast, you can keep from poking the bear and getting that disappointed look. This guy is clearly king at this! Check out how he bounces back from an autocorrect mishap.
This was a purposeful attack on the sanctity of cakes all over the world. What barbarian cut this cake? All good questions, but unfortunately, this woman knows exactly who the culprit was, and she is very disappointed.
Not only will it take some clever cuts to fix the problem, but she now has to have a talk with the light of her life where she puts the fear of God in him so that something like this never happens again.
At Least He Knew
Rings are a sign of the love and devotion that a couple commits to at that very special ceremony. That is why they are so precious, and when one is lost or misplaced, it can lead to some disappointing feelings.
This guy already knew that he was in the dog house, and the wife hadn’t even found out yet. It shows this guy’s pretty smart, but we don’t think it will save him from the conversation he will have when he gets home.
What Is Wrong With This Picture?
So many things are wrong with this! Not only did her man leave her barely a spoonful of chocolate ice cream, but it looks like he ate the other part with a fork. What kind of savagery is this!?
Sometimes we just need chocolate and to find an ice cream carton like this is quite a disappointment. We hope he has a good excuse and a solution to the problem!
Jokes on Him
Have you ever had a relationship where the other person thinks they’re funny, but in truth, they are not? This is what this person is going through right now. There probably was an initial disappointment, but…
Then that emotion moved to something even more dangerous for the husband’s annoyance. So maybe this husband should take a second next time to think about if he wants to sleep on the couch.
We can all appreciate someone who is trying to cut costs. Maybe it is so you can stash away more money for that vacation. Or perhaps it is so they can buy you a great anniversary gift. There are, however, things that should not be sacrificed!
One of these is toilet paper. Going with a single-ply isn’t going to save money; all it is going to do is make this person agitated when they sit down.
Sure I’ll Clean It Up!
It was so nice of this husband to put some sodas in to get cold for him and his lady; however, you have to keep an eye on them, otherwise, they will explode and make a big mess. This husband clearly got busy doing something else.
Not only is the woman cleaning it up, but she has to wait for her cold soda too. Two disappointments rolled into one situation.
That Is Not Right
All-day, this woman was thinking about her husband’s deviled eggs. It was why she skipped the other half of her sandwich. But he lost track of time and, in order to get back on track, tried something outside the box.
But the idea backfired, and the boiled eggs did this. So now the woman is let down and doesn’t get any of those delicious, deviled eggs.
Stacking It Up
The lesson learned here is to be very specific when you ask him to put the toilet paper up in the bathroom. He was just doing what he thought was right, but it is disappointing that now there will need to be double work done.
We are sorry for this woman and think that her husband should have realized something wasn’t right when he didn’t see any other TP in this corner.
It Just Dawned on Me
There are different soaps for different things, and unless you are in the kitchen a lot, you may think they are interchangeable. So we might be on the side of the husband on this one. After all, it is an honest mistake.
On the other hand, most soaps that are for dishwashers say dishwasher on them, so maybe he should take the time to read the products next time to ensure he is using the right one.
This Is Why Pints Were Invented
Things like this are why married couples around the globe should rather buy Ben & Jerry’s. If it wasn’t for these geniuses, things like this might happen every day. That would be tragic and disappointing.
Though this woman is clearly upset and for good reason, maybe it’s her fault for buying Neapolitan ice cream. Who does that!? Nobody who is a full-grown adult or that doesn’t have children, that’s who!
We have all struggled with the fitted sheet when we were folding our laundry; it is a challenge, and unless you have worked in a bedding store or are a super homemaker, you have to give this husband a little credit for even trying.
Though this woman may be disappointed when they got home, at least they can get a little chuckle from the note! Then you can try to fold it yourself.
When you find things, and no one will claim responsibility for it can be pretty frustrating. This is really true when there are only two people in the house, and you know you didn’t do it! So did a ghost need some ice for their drink?
This woman seems to be disappointed because her husband won’t claim this unique piece of artwork. Not only that, but how did he not smell the plastic right away?
It was sweet that this dad was super excited to place his daughter’s candles on her birthday cake. But maybe there should have been some supervision so that there wasn’t a 3-alarm fire on the poor girl’s cake.
The best thing about this disappointing turn is the look on the little girls’ face. She is not sure whether to be excited or frightened.
Something Isn’t Right!
This may be the problem with one store for everything. It confuses people when they are putting the groceries up. So don’t be mad at your man; it might just be a little challenging to know where things go.
Although we are pretty sure that he should know where the feminine hygiene products go, and it is not in the kitchen pantry. So we can see this woman’s frustration.
We are sure that this wife sent her husband to get a new mattress that would cover both sides. But this is what he brought home, and because of this, someone will be disappointed tonight.
We guess it won’t be here as she clearly is getting the left side of the bed from now on. So if he wants more room, he better get this situation fixed!
Jelly Sandwich Anyone
Remember in school when you did the exercise on giving instructions. You know, the one where you have to walk someone step by step through making a PB&J. This husband clearly was absent that day.
We would be disappointed if we were his wife; after all, who wants to eat a jelly sandwich? That is just crazy and might be a crime against humanity! We urge her to look into that…
Your wedding day, night, and honeymoon may well be the happiest time of your life. Most people would want to document it so that they could look back on those memories. That is why this bride had one favor to ask her husband to be.
But he only snapped this one pic. So the first thing she needs to work on, so she is not consistently disappointed, is to make sure he understands what she means when she asks him to do something.
A for Effort?
You know this is a hard one for us. He did get the card, and he did use some clever crafting to make it work for the occasion. In fact, he put more work into this than he would have if he had just bought a card.
So maybe don’t be super disappointed in him. Give him some credit and then explain why he will be paying for this kid’s first birthday party.
Once again, maybe this isn’t his fault; after all, he doesn’t know Spanish. Ignore the fact that there are pictures of pots and pans or the fact this product has scrub buddies written on it… It does say tampons! So he did get what you asked for!
At the time, it may seem like you should be disappointed, but maybe you should take a few minutes. You may not be in the best mind right now to explain to him why you threw the box at him!
A Little to the Left
No one wants to clean the litter box. It is not a fun task, but when you have a fluffy friend, it is a necessity. So taking turns is a great idea when you are a couple. This way, no one gets the short end of the stick.
But we are sure this woman when she saw this thought to herself “I should have just done it myself”. Worst yet, this guy just left it and didn’t make any effort to clean it up.
Making a Mess
Plastic melts when exposed to heat. That is why using plastic utensils is not advised when cooking. This seems like a piece of common sense every adult human should have. But it apparently isn’t!
Because of this, this poor wife spent a disappointing few hours trying to get the mess cleaned up. She clearly loves the guy a lot to deal with this. She would have to!
Arachnophobia is common, and so when you marry someone with it, you sign an unwritten contract to deal with any of these creepy crawlies. Typically that means ushering them to the great outdoors or into the next world (if you get what we mean).
However, this guy assumes it is handled by letting people know about it so they can be careful when using the toilet. Is this really the best plan he could come up with?
Many people out there are serious when it comes to stacking dishes in the dishwasher. In fact, it can be so serious that walking in to find something like this could cause a physical reaction. But we would hope this man knew that before he said, “I do.”
This makes this crime even worse. Maybe this is something she can bring up in therapy because we are sure she will need to vent to someone.
Maybe he is not a good speller, but he is all yours. So the disappointment you feel when you see this banner should not last long. Otherwise, the whole party will be ruined, and no one wants to be a party pooper, right.
Once everyone leaves, you can say something and then wonder how many people realized that there was something off about the banner. And you can use it as a way to get him to do other things for you.
I’ll Give You Finger
Use what you have at hand! This seems to be this husband’s mantra. So when his wife needed her drink stirred, he did just that. Unfortunately, that literally meant what was at hand, and that was not what she had expected.
The fact he was in the kitchen next to the silverware drawer makes this action pretty disappointing and a little annoying. Plus, who knows where his fingers have been!
