It will probably be a pain but why don’t you just make some phone calls seeing who is having what….or if its family and friends you have emails for shoot them an email real quick!

I personally don’t think it’s fair to say a 1.5 y.o. should eat off their parents plate. Maybe the child wouldn’t like the items the parents picked out? A 1.5 y.o. eats “normal” food, while they probably wouldn’t eat the entire kids meal, I’d say they are deserving of their own.

Sorry people aren’t doing as you asked, but at least they are sending the RSVP’s back to you!

It’s pretty much impossible to get everyone to fill out RSVP cards exactly, no matter how much instruction you give them. FI and I were just invited to a wedding recently, and even though he is 30 years old and has been to many weddings before, he had no idea that the “M_______________” line was for him to fill out his name and title. 🙂

If you asked people to just check a box, they’ll circle something. I’m sure it’s irritating, but at least they’re sending them back!

It does sound irritating! I know my aunt said she would share a plate with her 2 1/2 year old, but on the flip side, ordered the adult meal for her almost 5 year old and 7 year old son. My meals weren’t too expensive though, and their monetary gift covered the cost, which is a pretty common thing in my area

some people just don’t like to read directions….and of course you have your rebels without a cause. *raises hand* i’m guilty as charged….i know it’s frustrating, but hang in there.

I second flipflopbride. Many of my friends have had to call and email multiple times close family members that can’t seem to be bothered to send in their RSVP.

Same here.  We asked them to initial so we knew who was eating what but people just put 1 chicken 1 steak…we’ve made phone calls to sort it out.  Sorry!

That stinks!  But my FI did exactly as marigold describes and asked me what M__________ was!  I just smiled and filled in our names!  Haha!
