@mrsdfarrar6714:  Oh man… That’s crazy. How can you be friends with someone and not know how to spell their name? :/ At least you know what NOT to do! 🙂

@mrsdfarrar6714:  Oh man. Misspelling your name is just insane. The other stuff is super annoying, but maybe she just doesn’t have anyone to tell her how to do it right. Poor girl, she’s probably pissing people off left & right and doesn’t even know it!

@mrsdfarrar6714:  I always feel bad for people like this. They must have no idea about weddings. However, even if she doesn’t know anything about weddings, she should know how to spell your name.

My name was spelled wrong on a STD.  I didn’t correct it.  It was spelled wrong again on the invitation, so if I were to get mad about it at that point, it should have been at me.  But my name is commonly misspelled, so I didn’t care enough to point it out.

But a non-stamped RSVP and saying she needed numbers before the deadline?  That would annoy me.

I used  RSVP cards and attached postage for the convenience of my guests.  But believe it or not, it’s NOT against etiquette not to provide the means for a response.  It’s only because so many people are rude that people have resorted to it.  The onus is always on the person who receives an invitation to respond.  Traditionally, that was on one’s own personal stationery. Some people still respond that way.  But it is not rude not to spoon feed your guests in this fashion as long as you are OK with the fact that  most people will be too rude or lazy to reply.
