- Wedding: October 2014
Ugh we are under 3 weeks away from our wedding RSVP date was well over a week ago….I understand people take time to send them in but peoplehave had their invitations for damn near a month….and yet we are still chasing down 1/3 of our RSVP responses….
What has me frustrated is that i have a week to find responses from people and they are ducking and dodging us…mainly family all of whom have known our wedding date for well over a year…
It irks me because the rsvp cards were sent in pre-addressed envelopes with return postage already on the envelope, literally all they had to do was pull the card out of the envelope mark yes or no, write their name, slide it in the envelope, seal it and put it in the mail box….its not hard….plus there is an option for them to type their name into our wedding website and rsvp that way….they also have the option to call us, text us, or e-mail FI or I….
I get it understand no one does their RSVPs in time….but when I am trying to track you down, dont ignore our e-mails/calls/texts or say that you have been too busy….( i highly doubt that in a months time you had no time to fillout the card, or atleast e-mail us back)….
for instance we have 8 different families (aunts, uncles, and siblings) that are currently pretending we dont exist in our attempts to get their awnser….the sibling, was directly called and asked, and they danced around it by abruptly changing the conversation to how they just got back from shopping all day for an outfit for another wedding next feburary…and then threw a fit and hung up the phone on us when we flat out said we needed an awnser….
If your not comming just say soo..whatever we understand that not everyone can come and we dont expect everyone too…but atleast give us an awnser so we can make our payments….
we are litterally all paid off except for 2 vendors whom we litterally cant pay off until we know the head count….(1 for tables/chairs/tablecloths/plates ect, and the other is our caterer)…and we have to have payments in by next saturday, and we are just getting flustered, by people….some are slowly responding….but the family ones are just acting appalled that we even want a response….but we cant pay for another 60 people who arent going to show to be there, and pay that amount and then eat that cost….its just disrespectful….i mean really…how hard is it to write your name check yes or no, lick an envelope, and put it in the mail….
ugh….sorry for the vent…but good heavens…yes or no have the deceny to send it back….I gave my self extra time from what everyone recommends and im still pulling my hair out….maybe its me…but when i was growing up and even as an adult, I was taught to send them back and confirm your presence or lack there of for any event like that….just out of courtesey for other peoples times….
I find it hard right now becuase some of these imparticular are ignoring our every attempt to get ahold of them, but are posting all over facebook about their “lazy weekend of doing nothing”, this party or that party they went too, and can write all kinds of posts on facebook, but refuse to respond to our e-mails, texts, messages and posts….
ugh again thanks for letting me vent and get this out…I know the majority of it is brides brain, and the stress of being 20 days away from the wedding….
Any other october bees in the same boat?
