Sa akin marami na kong naexperience na horror:
1. Party starts at 3:30PM, pero dahil laging late ang mga guests, nilagay ko 2:30PM sa invitation, so by 3PM may nagdatingan na. Merienda is supposed to be served at 4:30PM pa, pero un isang tita ko, nagwawala na ng 3PM, gutom na gutom na raw siya at hindi pa siya nakakapag-lunch, pilit pinabubukas un buffet para makakakain na raw siya!  ::)
2. Pag upo palang ng guests sa table, napansin namin ng sister ko, yun mga table centerpiece na 3D balloons, nawala na, tinago na sa ilalim ng mesa...
3. While the party is on-going at kumakain pa ang ibang guests, pinabalot na ng isang guest yun entire roast beef with all the gravy sa waiter para i-take-home niya! Pinabawi ko nga sa caterer yun roast beef na binalot, grabe!
4. When the party was almost finished, the guests stood up on their chairs and pulled the decors from the ceiling to take home.
5. While naglilipit yun crew, one of my titas was arguing with them, she wanted to take home the styro backdrop ???

Hindi pa kasama yun nangyari sa wedding ko dyan :-X

yang mga ganyang pangyayari parang normal na sa mga party lalo na sa province. kalimitan pa kamag anak ang nakakasira ng party instead na makatulong..  :(

mahirap maglagay ng magandang centerpieces, makikita mo lang sa picture kapag wala pang bisita. asahan mo na pag upo ng bisita, napangalanan na agad yun :) kaya pag nagbebirthday mga pamangkin ko tama na yung simpleng centerpiece, like yung parang wind mill na carton worth P10 lang, saka lollipops.
ang mga souvenirs konti lang dapat ang display, marami sa bisita dumodoble pa, pati wala sa party ikinukuha. pati nga mga waiters nakikikuha

yung mga take out normal na rin, like yung tita ko nung fiesta, may dalang mga ulam na pang isang linggong ulam na nila. kahit di pa napafry na chicken bitbit na e. nagtatawanan na lang kami. kami namang magkakapatid kanya kanyang tago ng dessert like leche flan kase for sure walang matitira kahit gano karami pa ang ihanda. :)

hays! i attended a wedding last april ata, naawa ako sa bride and groom lalong lalo na dun sa host nila kasi parang nagmamakaawa na sila sa guests nila to stay muna for the picture taking and other activities pa..grabe sa church pa lang, diba usually you'll wait for the bride and groom na lumabas ng church para hagisan sila ng flowers and to congratulate them..naku nawala silang lahaatttt!! nauna na sila sa reception, kami tong di relative eh kami tong naghintay sa kanila. buti na lang nasa amin yung mga flower girls.. then yun na nga pagdating sa reception nagmamadali na kumain mga guests tapos sabi nung host wag muna tatayo kasi mag picture taking per table pa diba tapos yung paghagis pa ng flower..ang daming di nagawa kahit pag cut ng cake nawala din kasi nga nagsi alisan na lahat..naawa talaga ko sa bride..

^kaya dapat inuuna muna ang program at picture taking bago magpakain kase common na yan na pagkakain nag-aalisan na mga bisita na parang pagkain lang ang pinunta nila..

"ok [textspeak!] ba mguuwi ako ng food? Andun sa my gilid yung plastic bag,tinabi ko muna.." when i saw it to my horror,plastic bag ng SM?!

sis kailangan kasi talaga na isa sa di natin nakakalimutan ke me organizer ka o wala ke metaga bantay ka o wala e masabi sa caterer na walang magbibigay ng food sa guests para iuwi unless pinaalam sa inyo. Assign someone na me power to say MAMAYA NA DI KA BA MAKAANTAY ME KAKAIN PA E OK KA LANG? hehe sa relatives or guests na nagbabalot. Could be your mom or dad or someone na me K haha para yun mga waiters di magpabalot. bawal kasi dapat yun while the party is on going di ko alam bakit di nag iisip ang mga waiters na yan na me head counts yun pagkain tapos magpapabalot ng di pa tapos yun party..

We had a wedding nun sa sofitel pa yan ha sosyal na yan ka 2k per head yan ha.
me guest na dumating. well kasi naman yun bread and desserts and soup kasi nasa buffet na actually nagsisimula palang silang iset up yun mga food. etong si guests lumapit dun sa buffet table at kumuha na ng food. di ko maalala if tinakpan pa ng clear plactics yun food meaning di pa sya open at di padin kaya nagsisimula yun program.

so ending nasaway tuloy sya hehe sensya utos lang. na di pa open ang buffet for serving. then same guests again me dala pala plastic nun patapos na reception naghakot uli ng food. di naman nya sinabi sa waiter pabalot sya na kasi nagsandok ng food imbes sa plato ilagay sa plastic so sinaway uli namin na yun food kasi is for the couple whatever me matira. binilin kasi ng couple yun bawal ang balot and me kakain pakasi ayun bingo na si guest hehe

Pasensyosa ako sa guests pero yung bday ng son ko this year is really different. First time namin magcelebrate sa house ng parents ko. we gave out invites pero sinabihan na ko ng mom ko na maghanda kasi yung ibang batang taga labas ng vill pumapasok talaga sa parties. ok lang sabi ko pakainin na lang. come party day dumating nga yung group ng bata so sabi ko ok lang join na rin kayo. Maayos naman sila... until dining time came. one kid took several packed meals plus stuff from the buffet table. I saw na ilalabas nya. Since nasa rooftop kami nahabol sya ng dad ko. Sabi nya pinapakuha daw ng nanay nya. Jusko! So kinuha ng dad ko. Yung candy bar naman ang tinambayan at binalot nya sa panyo nya yung mga candies dun. Galit na galit ang mom ko pero sabi ko hayaan na. Nung nilabas ko na yung major souvenir di ko na sila binigyan kahit nagmamakaawa dahil school stuff yunv giveaway ko. Sabi ko dami mo na kinuhang candy yan yata gusto mo eh yan na souvenir mo :/

I guess horror guests ang nag confirmed ng attendance nila pero at the day of the party, hindi dumating.

Hmm.. sunny weather naman, wala naman emergency..

Banned na sila sa next party ko.

Pag nag confirmed naman, sana naman tuparin ang confirmation na yun. Bow.

Hay naku madame ako niyan mga sis! worst in-laws ko pa. nung una binyag ng anak ko. ang haba ng pila, singit ng singit tas pumapalalpak pa sa waiter and sabi "ikuha mo ako ng kare kare!!! wag mo ko jan ikuha. dun sa loob." as in me baon pang mga microwavable containers! kaloka talaga! nagulat tuloy family ko and other guests. lahat nagtatanong sa akin kung sino sino yung mga yun. ngiti lang ang reply ko sa kanila. pati mother ko nalost! hahaha! nagreklamo pa sa hubby ko na kulang daw yung pagkain. na hindi daw yun for 100pax kasi pang 4 na tao lang daw yung naiuwi nilang food.  sabi ko sa hubby ko nakita ko [textspeak!] inuwi and kasya ang 10pax dun sa mga pagkaing dala nila. start pa lang ng kainan nagpapabalot na kagad.

nung 1st bday naman ng anak ko, talagang pangalawa pa sila sa pila. nanghihingi na kagad ng plastic para magbalot ng pagkain. buti na lang lesson learned from my daughter's christening! nagbigay kagad ako ng instructions sa mga waiters na walang magbabalot hanggang hindi tapos ang party. the nerve talaga! P.G.!

Naku I feel bad, there was a wedding where hindi ako nakapagbigay ng gift  :(
Dapat kasi bibili ako the day of the wedding, kaya lang nakulangan ako ng time, I was planning to give cash though pero nahiya naman ako kung maliit lang ang amount, kaya I prefer buying gift sana. Sana I gave the cash nalang kahit na masabihan ng kuripot hehe...

Ang mga naencouter ko palang sa mga guest na ininvite ko.

1. Magcoconfirm na pupunta, hindi naman sisipot.
2. Ayaw magconfirm agad kasi malayo pa naman. Eh kailangan ko nga ng head count kasi magpapareserve ako.
3. Nung binyag ng baby ko, yung ninong sa kainan na dumating. nagsend na ko ng invitation pero text pa rin ng text during the event kung san ang location at anong oras. kaloka!

Wala pa naman akong naencounter na nagpapabalot sa mga guest ko. Madalas pag kami pumupunta ng party, kami pa yung binibigyan ng pabalot though hindi naman kami humihingi.

Not my own guest, but what i observed lang in the kiddie party i attended...

Yung parent na malakas humakot ng toys sa pinata (pinyata). Ok lang naman to help your kid get some toys lalo na if he is too little pa. Pero sana wag naman sobra sobra to the point na 50% ata ng toys ay nasa arms nung nanay. happy and proud pa sa ginawa nya, sabay sabi pa - malapit na kami maka quota.

Sana she played fair. Like if her daughter was 2 yrs old and babies that age can make agaw 2 toys, then get 2 or even 3 for her. But not naman humakot kasi kawawa ibang mga kids.

Nako, upon reading your posts, pasalamat ako na wala pa kami masyadong naexperience na ganito when hosting parties ( o baka di ko lang alam). Hirap kasi stressed out ka na sa preps, dadagdagan pa ng horror guests.

Grabe din talaga ang ibang guests. Que horror! haha.  Dagdag ko lang:
1) During break/mealtime (and hindi pa tapos ang games), there were some guests na nangungupit ng prizes. Adults and kids alike.
2) In a bring me game, one kid won more than 5 times (consecutively) because his mommy was sitting at the front table. He is also one of the older kids so he always outrun the others. Hindi naman eto Olympics na paramihan ng medals. :)
3) Sa gifts, we have lowered our expectations in this aspect. Wake up call sa amin nung wedding namin.  For example, we had a guest na daming comment sa food, music, etc. (buti mostly good naman) pero wala palang gift. Haha. Kaya any event that we had after the wedding, medyo iba na ang mindset. Maspractical na rin ako when planning. Pero mas gusto kong pumunta na lang ang guest kahit walang regalo rather than see vacant chairs/tables.

Grayce:

Kaso lang sis nag confirmed sila, na sana kung hindi pala talaga sila pupunta eh nag NO na lang, eh di sana na i a lot ko yung seats nila sa ibang tao na gusto din namin i-invite sana. Yung shakey's taytay kasi eh small function room lang, 90 guests ang kasya, kaya super ingat na ingat ako sa invitation, at ayaw kong maging sardinas LOL. Diba sis, wala lang nakaka badtrip ang ganun, dapat pag nag Yes, yes yun. Hehe


Naku mga sis, buti na lang hindi pa naman ako nakakaranas ng guest na bwakaw sa prizes, naranasan ko lang may nagnanakaw ng gift na para sa celebrant :D

May extra prizes nga din ako, for kids na talagang wala apang prizes, pinamigay nung magician after the games ended, walang luhaan :)
