I totally had that happen!

Luckily I numbered the back so I was able to figure out who it was (and that they had already e-mailed their regrets) but it made me laugh.

@Daizy914:  Yes, people can be that- I’ll say it-dumb!

Unfortunately, you do not seem to have used the tip published here on the Bee many times about writing numbers on the back of the rsvp card, either in pen or pencil or invisible ink, so you can tell who sent it, by matching it to your numbered lists of invitations

  You will have to wait until  your deadline date and follow up with the non- responders. Someone will claim that they did send the reply. At that point, you can mention that you did receive a blank card.

Does the postmark provide any clue? That, and a “backward” check-mark (suggesting a left-handed guest) helped me to figure out the identity of the one person who checked that she was coming but did not write her name on the line.

Yup! One of my RSVPs replied no but didn’t write their name. I thought maybe I could figure it out by looking at the post mark, but lo and behold the post office didn’t even cancel the stamp. WTF??? LOL

a friend of mine sent out her RSVP’s with no line for us to write names…I checked off our meals, put it in the envelope and was about to mail it when i realized.  I opened it back up and wrote our names on.  She had fun trying to sort that one out as many guests didn’t notice!!

Yeah this happened to us too. Can you figure it out by the zip code stamp on the postage?

I actually wrote in the invitees names on the rsvp, on the M_____ lines.  I figured that then I wouldn’t get any blank ones back, or any that I couldn’t read, since it was my own writing, and as an added bonus, there could hopefully be no confusion about who was invited!  (I also only had the number of lines as people invited – so I had a few versions of the card printed)
