So my RSVPs are trickling in and I check my mail EVERY DAY because I find it so exciting to find one in the mailbox.
I got one today. No return address.
I opened it up.
Apparently Boba Fett has chosen to decline spitefully.
It’s funny. Almost. I am kind of frustrated because there is NO WAY to tell who actually sent it!
How am I supposed to get things together for place cards, favor counts, chair/table rentals, etc. if I can’t count my guests properly??
FI thinks it was our best man being funny. Apparently the handwriting looks like his.
Anyone else have ridiculous RSVPs??

@dolly1105: that is hilarious! Sorry! I hope you figure out who it is!

Well not a “prank” response but I had someone respond without writing their name on the line that said M________. They just left it blank. After complaining about it on the Bee a few times, some Bees suggested numbering the back or putting guest’s initials on the back of the RSVP card. We finally found out who the mystery guest was but I wish I labeled the cards.

@dolly1105: Boba Fett needs to get his shit together. XD

I numbered the RSVP cards to avoid this 🙂

I recently received a discretely numbered RSVP cards. It takes the mystery out of Boba Fett-signed cards.

@dolly1105: It sounds like a joke but the way to handle it is pretend you didn’t get it. You wait for the RSVP due date, plus a few days’ grace. Then for any guest who hasn’t RSVP’d “yes” or “no”, you will need to phone them and get an answer.

I knew about the numbering thing, but I honestly thought my guests weren’t absurd, so I didn’t do it. I should have known better! I’m definitely wishing I numbered them so I could at least enjoy the joke! Oh well. FI says “I’m honestly disappointed that Mr. Fett won’t be joining us.”

When my dad rsvp’ed he crossed out the “accepts with pleasure” and wrote “accepts because I have to.” But I was standing right next to him when he did it, and I know his sense of humor. That was as weird as ours got. I numbered the cards and never even needed to use it.
Just have your FI call the BM and ask If it was him. That’s probably the easiest thing to do.

That is hysterical I’d be in tears if I got something like that.

@abbylyn: This is brilliant! I had no idea about numbering RSVP cards.

Using a black light pen to number the RSVPs solves this problem 🙂

I’m sitting here laughing my ass off and crying. I may borrow that “idea.”
