We sent out our wedding invitations over 2 months ago. We invited close to 40 people for our small, intimate destination wedding. I’d say we got maybe 10 of the RSVPs back. 10. And most were declined. Our wedding is less than a month away (forgive me if my wedding date reflects wrong, we actually moved it up.)
Annoying as this is, I’ve had the pleasure of taking on the awkward task of writing an e-mail via facebook to each guest who hasn’t sent their’s back, asking them if they received it, and if so, if they intend to attend our wedding. What’s funny is, out of the few people I wrote e-mails to on facebook, only one person actually responded while the others were “seen” but not replied to. What gives? This is so rude. And I have no idea what to do now….
I’m sort of in a panic just because we are playing guessing games with the guest count, and need to know a count before we order all of the tables, chairs, linens, etc….
Any suggestions??? UGH!

I’d get on the phone and call people. :/ Maybe your mom or FMIL would help with their respective sides?

Same exact thing happened to me. The only thing you can do is start calling people.

I would assume anyone who’s ignoring you is a ‘no’, unfortunately…

When is your deadline? About 70% of mine came in the day before and of.

@whitekitty86: When is the RSVP date?

If the RSVP date has come and gone and they won’t reply to an email and ignore a phone call…..consider them a NO and if you want to be like me…..you’ll write them off for the next year or so and never invite them to anything ever again.
I get that people are busy but at a certain point it’s just rude and, imo, total bullshit.

Did you send out save the dates? If so, how far in advance did you send them. I think that with the wedding a month away, if folks haven’t respondedand can’t be reached via phone, consider them a “no.”

Since you have a destination wedding, and you just sent your invites out 2 months ago I can’t say I’m surprised by the response. People need more time to save and plan! I would count them as no’s because if there were planning on coming to your wedding, you wouldn’t be having such a hard time getting a response from them. Just enjoy the people that do come to your wedding. Don’t stress out about it.
