So far we’ve had three different people have issues with sending back RSVP’s for our Engagement party lol.
1) One Family got their Invite/RSVP in the mail and loved it so much that the lady texted me and told me how much she loved it and her and husband would be there for sure, she then asked if kids were allowed.. I told her yes, and we started chatting about her daughter.. About an hour later she texted me again and said.. “Oh yeah that angel daughter of mine ripped up the envelope and drew on the RSVP with crayon.. Just so your not surprised when you get it back in the mail I thought I’d let you know” lol
2) One older lady called FI’s mom to let her know that her grandson ripped up the RSVP into a million pieces before they could mail it back.. So she had to phone in her RSVP because hers was totally destroyed lol
3) Another family got their invite and the wife filled it out and give it to the husband to mail, he took it and forgot in in their van.. A few days ago their van got broken into and a bunch of stuff got stolen. The RSVP was ripped open (I guess someone thought there was $ in there) and tore off part of the RSVP. The wife felt so bad that she hand delivered it to FI’s parents house because she would be embarassed to mail it back in the state that it was in lol
Anyone else have any interesting RSVP stories lol?

That is HILARIOUS!
Almost half of our guests DIDN’T RSVP. We had to hunt them all down, and they responded “I thought you knew I was coming?”

We got back one or two blank ones, but luckily I had numbered the back in light pencil so I knew who wanted roast beef and who wanted chicken!

@BrandNewBride: We had to chase down a few of our guest and their like heck yeah we are coming our hotel booked, our flights are booked. I’m like I’m glad you are but I’m not a freaking mind reader.
I got some cute and fun notes back but no crazy stories.

@Stephville: My only story is pretty boring. I received one response on which the guest did not write his or her name. I was perplexed as to whom it may have been, so I just started searching for clues. All I had were a postmark and a “backward” (for a right-handed person) checkmark on the “_____ will attend” line.
I looked at my guest list to see if I could determine who may be coming from the area in question, narrowed it down to someone from my office, and then asked the person if she was left-handed. I then explained to her why I was asking. She laughed; it was indeed she who had forgotten to write her name.

@BrandNewBride: I’m afraid this is going to happen to us! Our deadline is approaching and we still need more than half the people to RSVP.

We had a bunch of people not put their names on theirs. Thankfully I numbered them, since the postmarks would not have helped–unfortunately, our mail gets routed an hour north to a sorting facility and is postmarked up there, so ALL of our local RSVPs came back stamped from there. :
I was kind of floored at how many people didn’t fill out the RSVPs correctly, though. It said this:
“Please reply by July 26th, 2013
__ of _X_ attending
____ not attending”
…and so many people forgot their names, didn’t fill in the number line (which was fine, I guess; I should have just left it “we have reserved x seats in your honor”), wrote numbers on the attending/not attending lines, etc. DH’s aunt didn’t write any names on theirs, skipped the numbers line, and wrote “1” and “2” on the attending/not attending lines, respectively, and I was SO confused.
