Ugh, I hear ya!!  Definitely the most annoying part of planning was getting (or NOT getting) RSVP’s.  We had one person select all three meal options!  A few did’t send them it at all and we had to contact.  It’s definitely annoying.  Hang in there!

I heard about people not knowing who sent the RSVPs thats why I numbered my invitations and RSVP cards. I’m having the same problem our deadline is 8/14 and we still haven’t heard from a total of 40 groups of people which means we don’t know if 64 people are coming. Most people don’t even send the RSVP cards back even if they aren’t coming. I prestamped all of the envelopes too so you’d think people would send them in as soon as they got them. Some people love to mull over the food choices, but like come on its not that difficult to pick. I still haven’t received any RSVP from my FI’s parents like obviously they are coming but I need to know what you are eating!!! WTF!

I wrote the names of each person on their RSVP card so that they would know exactly who I was inviting (we had no kids) and so when they were sent back I had the names I wrote in case they didn’t include a return address.

We had about 5 RSVP’s returned with NO guest name OR return address.  We had used invisible ink on the back of the RSVPs to number them and that saved us!  You can get the pens for cheap on Amazon.  Sorry, too late for you to do that now but maybe others reading this will find it useful.

Honestly I thought I was going to have a problem with this, but ran out of time to number the backs just in case. So far everyone has RSVPed with their names listed.

I think its really funny that people my age (mid twenties) literally have no clue what the M______ means. Someone thought it mean’t leave a message and I was like WTF why would i want you to write a message when there is no name on the card whatsoever people can be so stupid.

mct725 :  This is why we decided to change the M__ for Name(s)___ just to make it as clear as possible lol.

We haven’t sent out our invitations yet and I definitely plan to number the RSVPs now.

My mom and I actually assembled our invitations today (all 12 of them!) and numbered the backs that corresponded with my Excel sheet so I’d know who was responding if they didn’t write their names. I’m hoping with such a small guest list we won’t have many issues, but you never know.
