I’ve had people tell me to my face, text me, or e-mail me that they’d be coming. I always replied with, “I appreciate the heads up and I look foward to receiving your RSVP in the mail. I can’t wait to add it to my wedding scrapbook!”

It does seem like a huge pain that we might get rsvp’s a variety of different ways, but honestly as long as we get them, that’s the point.

Have you printed them yet?  If not, then just dont put the email info on, and explain the scrapbook to your FI.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with asking people to send in the RSVP. If they email to let you know, just ask them to please send their RSVP card back in the mail so you can keep track of everything in one place.

I included an email address as an RSVP option.  A huge majority still mailed the RSVPs, so you should be ok!

I also had the ability to RSVP via my website and I still had a majority of folks who did take the time to RSVP do so via the RSVP that I put the stamp and return address on it.  Honestly, I would take RSVPs anyway I can get them, some folks I had to email on FB or send a text message to in order to get an RSVP. Didn’t matter one way or the other ultimately as long as I got an answer (those people were all noes).

I think you can prefer all you want, but in the end the important thing is to get the info, not how it comes. And you can ask our guests to return the cards but I think you should be a gacious host and not pitch a fit if they respond via email. And I can understand you wanting to scrapbook, but do you really need them all? You’d just have pages and pages of RSVPs. I think you’ll get plenty to go in the scrapbook without any additional effort on your part.

My solution – make your fiance keep track! If he doesn’t mind checking several places the just let him keep the RSVP list.

Ugh. I’m so annoyed with people today when it comes to rsvps. My deadline was the 15th and we’re still missing some cards and when we call they say um we think we’re coming, maybe, not sure… It’s like this is a wedding! all they have to do is decide, check yes or no, and drop off the preaddressed prestamped envelope! Sorry, I’m also venting lol

@MrsRichard:  I feel you with that vent. I’ve had people say they’ll be coming, but they’d let us know “for sure” the week before. Say what?!

I totally understand your rant (especially considering that postage can all add up!), but in the end I’d be happy that they even took the time to RSVP at all haha!

@BetterSherm:  Actually this is EXACTLY what one of my bridesmaids said when she accepted.  “I’ll be there, unless a big gig or something comes up.”  I was like Whhaaa???…um okay…I’m waiting to see if she RSVP’s cuz I’m not holding a room for her if she doesn’t, she can still for sure be a bridesmaid but no 2 night stay on our tab if you don’t rsvp.  🙂
