So I did the unheard of. The Rude, unthinkable most innapropriate thing you could do. I FORGOT TO RSVP to a bridal shower. I got a call Friday from the Brides mother; wondering if I was attending the shower. I couldn’t believe it. I felt like such an air head. I do have an excuse however. I received 2 different invitations on the same day. One RSVP said to respond with Regrets Only. I read that and for some reason must have thought it applied to both. They’re both hanging on the fridge and I still failed. So although it’s my excuse; it still doesn’t change the fact that I’ve been a major pain in the ars for the bride; her mother & her bridal party. I did run into the bride yesterday & I appologized and told her I was very sorry. I did explain about the regrets only. She said it was fine but I still feel like such a dork. So Ladies; this is my confession. I am living proof that it can be done & it’s not just snobery & rudeness. It’s just me being an air head! Argh……

I’m sure that they understand. That is why they called, to make sure they get an accurate count of the number of guests. Everyone forgets things sometimes!

It’s OK! I am notorious for not RSVPing to stuff. Due to my experience at always forgetting to RSVP, I know that when people don’t do it, it’s not for malicious reasons.

I think it’s fine. Hopefully she wont forget to RSVP for yours but if she does I guess be understanding. I doubt it’s a big deal really.

I did this same thing a couple years ago! The groom and my FI are best friends so I helped a lot with planning parts of the wedding as well as throwing the bachelor party (haha, yeah, I was the only girl there, but it was a huge blast) I had verbally told the bride, groom, mother of the groom, father of the groom, etc. that I was going, but never sent the RSVP back. :/ I felt like an idiot. Just know that you’re not alone!

awwwe don’t worry too much about it!!
My wedding planner always says that your nearest and dearest will be the ones to forget to RSVP for showers/weddings and that she always forgets when it comes to her personal life and weddings are her JOB!
