after MUCH debating with FI we decided NOT to include postage with our RSVP’s because 1) we never mail ours back 2) Friends were complaining no one mailed their RSVP’s back and 3) I knew I’d loose RSVP’s (I’m just like that)
…so…instead of following the DIRECTIONS ON THE CARD (RSVP by phone __________________ or email ______________________________. I now have family phoning & emailing me to tell me as soon as the postal strike is over they’ll mail the RSVP. Sigh. Live and learn.
In other news…two of these emails/phone asked what they are to do with their child while at the wedding.
WHY OH WHY IS THIS SO COMLICATED!

There really is no winning situation, I’m convinced.
I’ve always told the brides I’ve worked with that RSVPs are one of the hardest parts. So true.
Our deadline was last Friday. We’re still waiting for 20 cards/46 people. We started making calls and sending messages… and are now down to waiting for 20 people. But many of them that we thought we nos from out of town that hadn’t made a room reservation are actually coming. Awesome. So much for my target number of 115.
Good luck! I hope it gets easier for you!!!

And the fun begins hey?!! I’m thinking the opposite of you. I wish I hadn’t spent almost $100 on stamps that will probably never be used 🙁
I did receive 2 RSVPs today from family OR friends who live near by (they dropped them off at my house) and both, that’s right both, had no names on them. I have 4 guests coming but we aren’t exactly sure who they are..haha!! I should have numbered them like so many bees suggested but I figured my family and friends would never be the people who would leave out their names on them. Sigh!!

Oh people can be so frustrating! I only put stamps on envelopes who I know would make a huge deal over not sending postage. Other than that they had the option of mailing or emailing their RSVP.
