@canuckandakiwi:  I wouldn’t highjack the post thread, but a private message nudge wouldn’t hurt.

@canuckandakiwi:  I would send her a FB private message.  I’ve used that method for pretty much every shower or party I’ve needed to collect RSVP’s for when people don’t respond in time.  I don’t think reaching out that way via FB would be rude.  If anything she may appreciate the reminder.

@canuckandakiwi:  If this happened to me, I would tell her that she will be missed and write her off as a no.

Write her off as a no.

@Hyperventilate:  This.  Anyone that won’t respond after that many prompts isn’t coming.

Also, I doubt you need to send her anything.  She’s made her priorities clear by not saying anything.

Definately write her down for not coming!

@canuckandakiwi:  I know exactly how you feel.  I had asked my friend to be my MOH over a year ago.  She agreed.  Suddenly I didn’t hear from her at all.  Granted, she lives far and I did tell her if she couldn’t fulfil the role to let me know.  Nothing.  She emailed me a few weeks back saying, “your wedding is around the corner, how exciting!”  That’s when I emailed her back saying you will be missed.  Haven’t heard from her since.

@canuckandakiwi:  I’m not sure.  She sounded super excited.  We were willing to pay for her airfare but then it seemed like she wanted us to pay for her entire family to fly over.  That we would not be able to do as it would be four people.  Her husband has a disability and she has two kids.  Before we decided to purchase her airfare, she made it sound like it would just be her coming which is why we offered.  Then suddenly she disappeared, I would message her on FB and see that she was posting status updates but completely ignoring my messages.  Then that’s when I got the random message a few weeks ago.

I’d give her one more chance to reply by writing a PM saying you need final numbers by X date, so if you don’t hear from her by some deadline, you’ll have to put her as a no. You’ll know if she reads the Facebook PM and then if she ignores that too, eff her she’s not getting a seat!

@canuckandakiwi:  eh. i would just say “hey if we haven’t heard from you by Friday we’re going to mark you as a no. love ya!”

that’s what i plan on saying to people come this Saturday, a week past our RSVP deadline.
