We are having a BBQ rehearsal dinner since the day before our wedding falls on July 4. We will be having it at my dad’s house, and my dad/gf and FI’s parents are splitting the cost. Is it weird to have the RSVP come to me? We are doing “regrets only” but to be honest…everyone else is SO busy (and FI’s parents live 5 hours away) that I would like to be in control of who says yes and who says no (ok, maybe I’m a control freak…) so I have the right numbers. I’ve been in contact with the BBQ company and set everything up and have to give them the final count. The wording on the invitation says “Please join us for an “I DO” BBQ honoring Weatherbug and FI”. Is it totally weird to have “Regrets only to…. w/my cell # and email?” Thanks!

People may think you are hosting, but that is the only problem I see. If the parents are okay with you being in charge of the guest list, go for it.

weatherbug: I say go ahead and do whatever works for you. If the hosts don’t mind, I’m sure your guests won’t care.

I would say its fine. YOu are being a point of contact and planning things, why not

I think its fine. Our host isn’t that good with remembering things, haha. She also doesn’t do email so I decided I’d take one for the team 🙂

I had all the rehearsal RSVPs go to me! 🙂

What we did was make an email for our wedding stuff specifically…so “firstname.lastname@example.org” we used that for rehearsal dinner rsvps…so it was never really clear on who they were rsvping to! I think it would be fine to include your phone number as well.
