I don’t have anything to add but completely agree on all four of yours!

Haha. I agree with all of the above. I’m sorry to all of the brides that have ever received an almost-late RSVP from FI and me.

Thankfully I haven’t made any RSVP blunders, well kind of one but it wasn’t my fault, honest! Haha! The invitation was addressed to me only, so I RSVPed with my name only on the card, and then the groom called me to ask if I forgot to add my SO’s name or if he wasn’t able to make it. I tried to do it right, but oh well!

Not only have I learned what I have done wrong as a guest but I am also learning a lot of what weddings I have been in/been to, what the brides did “wrong”

LOL…I totally agree with your list! I was the WORST RSVP’er before my wedding invites got sent out…In fact the last few weddings I got invited to I refused to respond with an RSVP because I felt I was right on the principle of the matter (in my eyes) which was they had been told I was coming – what did they need it in writing for?!!! 

   If I could go back in time I would smack myself right across the head and say “Get some manners!” I will NEVER EVER leave an invite now – If it requests an RSVP I will send the RSVP straight away!

I agreee with it all! We actually got our invite to our friends wedding and I promptly filled out the RSVP card and mailed it the next day. I wanted to be considerate and I am hoping they will do the same for us!

Same here, with the RSVP. I used to be awful about gifts, too! Didn’t know about registries or that I even needed to bring one! But I’m on it now. Usually, once I RSVP, I check out the registry and start thinking about what I can spend. If I RSVP no, I send a gift right away!

@bestwishes:  Add to the list:  I will never ever ask if I can bring a +1 if it is not explicitly stated on the invitation.  And I will not substitute in a friend if my fiance cannot attend with me.
