@Autumnsnow:  Give her a thank you note on Monday. Don’t ask about the RSVP until after your due date. And breathe… 🙂

You wouldn’t give a thank you until she actually gives you the gift.  And if your RSVP date is almost a month away you say nothing until then, unless it just comes up in casual conversation.  I’m sure she’ll be able to work it out.

@Autumnsnow:  Oh, ok… I thought you were just registry stalking and could see that she bought something if she was only logging on this weekend – as in today.  That’s a quick turn around!

Leave it to the RSVP deadline and then mention that you haven’t got a definite response from her.  She may be still trying to figure out if she can attend, but knew she wanted to get you a gift regardless.
