@murmur:  hahaha I like your idea of only having 25 chairs 🙂

We’re doing an online RSVP because I was hoping we’d have a higher response rate, but that might just be me being optimistic lol

I agree.  We’re having a destination wedding so I DEFINITELY need numbers to decide if I even have enough to do a garter/bouquet toss –> which in turn decides if I should do a small sit down dinner or need to pay for a private reception.  I need to know numbers to reserve seats and to get a final count of items that need to be printed as well as the guestlist in my Out of Town bags.

UGH.  I even have some people asking if they could get back to be about it in MAY, the wedding is in JUNE.

I am so frustrated.

This isn’t a dinner on a Saturday night, this is a WEDDING.

LOL  Hilarious, I can just picture people’s faces when they see no chairs or dinner have been prepared for them.  This sounds awful, you have every right to be frustrated!!

ugh that is sooo frustrating!

I can’t find the post, but there was one bee that included on her invites to bring a chair and a sandwich if you didnt resond by the RSVP date. I thought that was hilarious!

I also did RSVP postcards. I asked for them to be returned by March 15 since we are getting married April 15. I am still missing about 40 people and they have had over 2 months to send them back. I don’t understand people. I am going to have so start making calls in a few days and I am not looking forward to it…

@murmur:  I feel your pain. We are date twins and my RSVP by day is in two days and I sent out and have received just about the same as you. WTFrick?

that would be super frustration and i would lose. my. mind!

reminds me of the four weddings episode where an announcement was made saying if you didnt RSVP then you have to sit outside during the reception/to eat – cringing rude but loved it

that’s just wrong. I’m praying I don’t have this issue. I’ve had some respond right away that they can or can’t come. And I agree I stamped the envelope as well.

It’s such a pain but wish there was a easier way to remind people!

On another note! Congrats…your wedding is on the same day as my 35th b-day!! That’s a GREAT day!!! 🙂
