@love108:  i understand freaking out now, since it seems like the hotel rooms will go away on the RSVP date.

 

OP- is there a way you can ask the hotel for a 1 week grace period? then you can set aside a few hours on 10/1 to call all these folks.

its possible that these people do want to come but have been waiting to decide if they can afford it/take time off. that doesnt make it any less annoying for you though!

Annoying! I think count them out as not coming. With destination weddngs you have to find out if you have the time or money, they probably just forgot to rsvp. It’s super annoying, and I admit I used to do this, I learned my lesson by watching friends and family get engaged then spent weeks chasing down people.

If we could go back in time and I could recommend to you to make the RSVP due date a week before you have to give numbers to you hotel, I would do that. I see this time and again. People are forgetful and they don’t RSVP when they are supposed to. They just don’t. And the ones you think would be the most responsible about it (like people who just got married) are the worst ones. You’re going to have to make a lot of phone calls on Oct 1st. Good luck!
