How annoying!

You probably need to start calling people and saying that this is their last chance… yes or no lol!

Amen to that!

My RSVP date is this Friday and I would say I’ve gotten back less than half of my replies. I am really starting to get frustrated and not looking forward to tracking down answers next week.

Oh yeeeaahhh I relate. One week before my wedding a woman who I had to track down sends me a message on Facebook that she didn’t realize she needed to send it back. If she didn’t realize when she got the invitation, she at least should’ve realized when I texted her about it twice!

My trickle has dried up and we’re at the end of the 2nd week of people having the invitations.

We watched another couple’s cats last weekend and when we went into to feed them the first time, we saw our invitation on the counter…the envelope was open, but I could see that the pieces were still tied together.  They hadn’t even pulled it out of the envelope yet!  🙁

@CrispyRN:  eesh, I feel for you & can relate a bit…Although i’ve gotten “yes RSVP’s” from most people, there are a few who never bothered to even reply. I just don’t get it?

A couple were old co-workers whom I’ve maintained friendships with & I was really surprised. I really find it rude but I should have expected it I guess. I went to one of my these “friend’s” baby shower, bought a beautiful gift, spent hours at the shower without speaking to hardly anyone except a couple of elderly ladies since i knew no one but the mama to be & no one really tried to include me. And I never even got a thank you, I just don’t get it.

I know this is going to sound really childish and selfish as hell, but I had no idea how important the RSVP part was until I started planning my own wedding. Not that it’s a defense for being rude, maybe other people don’t realize it’s importance either.

When I got married when I was young, I just plain didn’t care. I wasn’t really into that wedding anyway, so not much about it mattered. We didn’t invite that many people, so if someone showed they showed, if they didn’t they didn’t.

 

Totally the opposite with this one. I’m into my man and I’m into my future marriage. You can bet your sweet ass I’m going to be on top of RSVPs this time around.

Wait a couple days… Many people consider the RSVP date to be the day to mail it by… But yes, we had to call/track down lots of people 🙂

This all sounds too familiar. We are 2.5 weeks in since sending out our invitations. Between actual RSVPs that were sent, and word of mouth RSVPs our parents told us about, we only know about half the guestlist. People have had our save the dates since December! By this time everyone should know if they are coming or not. Ugh.
