Seriously, some of the people I thought would be first back have still not RSVP’d over a month after invitations have been sent.

And likewise, some of the people I expected to be late, they were in the first wave!

Yes, we attended a friends wedding in September and she never sent her RSVP back!!! This isnt a close friend – an old coworker who I still get together with every other month or so- but STILL! She was just married and Im sure she had to go through this so why wouldnt she send it back!?

@awakemysoul:we actually had quite a few people that never RSVPd and a few more that RSVPd and just never showed up. I would perhaps just send out a friendly reminder to those that haven’t RSVPd asking them to please get back to you as soon as possible so the appropriate arrangements can be made, but those that don’t respond to that reminder, just assume they are a no show.

We had a newly married friend who was selfish enough to verbally tell us they were coming but not mail back the RSVP card until 1 week before as a ‘no’ without a phone call or email to explain. They were pregnant and didn’t know if they wanted to travel, so it was their way of reserving a spot ‘just in case’ but not actually having to come.
