It’s only a slight vent, but I’m pretty annoyed. On our RSVP cards, we asked people to put initials next to their meal(s) of choice. I’m not doing full on assigned seatings and may not even go with assigned tables as currently planned. In order to facilitate the easy serving of lunch, I am printing out escort cards with meal choice on the back. Well, RSVPs are coming in (yay!!), and so far out of five responses, only ONE has actually bothered to read the instructions and put initials down. One is a no responses, so obviously there is no need for more. One is his parents, and they are ordering the same meal so, again, no big deal. That leaves two responses of four guests with dashes. Ugh. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not sitting here raging or anything, just annoyed and a little wary of the upcoming responses. However, I really wanted to avoid having to track people down who actually do respond since I know I’ll already have to check in with my family on their RSVPs. Boo. First world problems, I know, lol. Maybe if it’s a chronic issue, I’ll just assign people dishes and leave them to switch plates on the day.

You could just assign the food to the escort cards for the party (one chicken for john, one steak for lucy) and they can worry about switching the entrees themselves, since I assume they’re likely to sit with each other! 🙂

@HisMoon: I completely understand. Out of 20 cards, two are correct. Fiance wants to go back and check with everyone, I say that couples can just trade plates. It is so annoying!

That does sound super annoying to deal with! Hopefully it doesn’t get too bad, but maybe just place a quick reminder on your fb or wedding website (if you have one of course) to say that it’d be great if they let you know who wants what

Yeah, I am having the same issue. About 90% of my responses are without initials and I have to follow up to find out who is eating what.
Reading is hard apparently.

I don’t like that other people are dealing with this annoyance, but it makes me feel better not to be alone. From here on out, I’m just going to make people switch plates if I assigned the wrong dish to someone. I’m mostly concerned if families with kids do this because I might do a young person’s table (not kids since they’re all older than 15). Thanks, Bees 🙂
