I’m sorry to hear that, Worry Wart 🙁  (btw, I love your handle–I’m a total worrywart myself).  I have the same fear about my RSVPs.  People these days are sooo bad about replying to anything!  Emails, evites, you name it.  You would hope that people would be more respectful when it comes to wedding invites, but old habits die hard =T  Unfortunately, you may have to resort to sending out emails or making phone calls to hunt everyone’s responses down individually. 

Here’s hoping for a fuller mailbox tomorrow!  🙂

I think some people also feel like the RSVP deadline is simply the suggested mailing date . . . give it a few more days before you get to upset.

I love your username!

I have the same fear that lots of people won’t reply by deadline either, and I don’t really want to call lots of people asking if they’re coming or not.  Maybe some of your guests postmarked their RSVP’s today, so whoever you don’t get a reply from in a day or two, you can follow up with.

I feel your pain! We had quite a few people that didn’t bother responding. Some people went back and forth with whether or not they were coming and I still wasn’t even sure in the end if they showed up or not – I just put in a place setting for them because it got to the point where I had no idea what was going on. People are just… people. They don’t get the etiquette on these things, or so I learned.

I totally and completely feel your pain!  It doesn’t make sense to me why people do not send in RSVP’s right away.  In my opinion, either people know they’re coming or not (unless they’re in the process of planning vacations).  So…why wait to put the RSVP into the mailbox?!?!?! 

Anyways, if it helps you to know that you’re not alone, I just received an RSVP for our July 3rd wedding last week – over a month past the deadline.  (I also had a “B” list that I wanted to mail out after the original deadline).

Or, how about guests that NEVER put the card in the mail at all and you have to track them down??? Then, they make an excuse that they didn’t have a stamp when there was a stamp on the envelope! 

Okay…do you feel better now?  Hope you can’t top these stories!  lol 

Try to “Grin and Bear It” and enjoy every moment!  Smile
