bahahahaha Maybe? wtf? Are you serious?

I am also chasing down RSVP’s and guess what- they’re all local. Some people are brain dead, or some are just lazy maybe.

@Wannabe-diy-bride: lol! I just got this funny image of them opening your wedding invite and then putting it directly in the garbage. It almost seems as if that’s how some people are. Silly guests.

I am going through the same thing. Most of our family members and friends who are out of town have responded already. Deadline for us is this Saturday. NONE of our local invitees have responded!

Next week sometime I will probably make some follow-up calls and see if I can get some more finalized plans. People truly do not realize how stressful this is for the person planning the wedding – we need to know how much food to have, how many seats/tables, and all that jazz! Their lack of a response is irritating, especially when I provided a stamped RSVP. It takes two seconds to pop it in the mailbox.

I’m not yet at the point of sending out invitations, but I just sent out my Save the Dates which pointed everyone to our website which has the basic ‘who, what, when and where’ type info on it.  I’ve gotten several calls, emails and texts with questions that are definitely already covered on the site.  I think the concept of a formal RSVP is lost on so many – seems to be fairly generational.  Given how much thought and time you’ve put into it just makes it seem that much more frustrating!

What I’m also concerned about is that some people seem to be verbally RSVP’ing to my mother and Future Mother-In-Law now that they’ve received the STD – so I can only imagine that many of these people consider this to be their formal response…

Good luck hunting everyone down – sounds like such a headache!

@lmoss78: My Fiance and I are about to send out our save the dates and I’m worried we’ll get people who will do the same thing. People are already telling my grandmother if they are going or not and she’s not even planning my wedding. 


@Wannabe-diy-bride: That sounds like a lot of people to hunt down! I hope you can get answers out of them.
