Well, to be honest, some people won’t RSVP unless you call them and follow-up.  Stinks, but it’s the truth.

Ugh, it seems to be pretty typical.  My BM complained to me about my guests not rsvping on time or at all.  It sucks.  Some of them will still show up, some of them aren’t aware that they should rsvp no if they can’t attend.  What my BM’s ended up doing was having my FI’s mother call everyone and get the rsvp that way (it was mostly her family).  Its a pain in the butt but at least you have a better idea of how many people are attending.

Why can’t people RSVP?!!  It drives me crazy!!  And that really is a lot of people that didn’t reply.

Unfortunately, most people don’t RSVP and you have to be the one to track them down and pin them into answering.  Urgh!!  See if another bridesmaid can help you make some phone calls.  Send emails to anyone you know.  Sorry you have to go though this!

One of my BM sent out 12 invites for another friends bachelorette party.  She had one person call her back.  I don’t understand why people are so bad at that.  I think it’s really rude to receive an invitation to anything in the mail and just not respond to it.

It seems fairly high to me (I think only 3 people didn’t RSVP to mine on time), but a lot of people are lazy and forgetful and won’t do it on time!  I know it’s too late now, but I find putting an e-mail address as an option helps.  Some people just aren’t phone people.  Boo to calling them all!  Good luck!  Maybe split up the list with someone else?

This apparently happened to my hosts. Several people didn’t rsvp and when my mom called they all said they were absolutely coming. Not sure why they can’t rsvp!
