I have no words of wisdom, but I understand your stress!

However, I’m on the opposite end of the guest list. I have too many people coming. I was forced into inviting people I didn’t even know, with the excuse “oh, they won’t come anyway”, but guess what, THEY’RE COMING. so. f-ing. frustrating.

I guess, if I were to have any words of wisdom, it would be to smile, nod, kill them with your mind, and move on. It’s almost over.

@.twist.: I like this ” smile, nod, kill them with your mind, and move on. It’s almost over. ” 

 

I’m really in a similar place except now that people have RSVP’d they’re backing out, I’ve had 2 people say they’re coming and now probably won’t UGH, I already gave the caterer the number!

@elliestan: That. Blows. 

 

Also, got our final quote for the reception venue, totally $500 more than we talked about — yipee.

Gahhh that sucks @elliestan ๐Ÿ™

There must be something about the 10/15 date that’s cursed, at least with RSVPs.  I’ve had the same issues.  Our deadline was a week ago, and we’re still waiting for at least 25% of our guests to respond.  It’s just like…. seriously???? Check off a box and send the damn card back to me.  It’s not that hard.

I am also 10/15 and our rsvp date was last saturday, missing 35%.  We have been contacting people all week.  We are only looking at 60% of invited coming.

missing about 10-12 people too. Everyone says “they lost” the RSVP. Actually got asked if I could resend the invitation to one woman so she knows the details. Oh well- it is what it is. I am also nervous about how many people are coming- I really was hoping for more no’s. Hoping the 10 will say no. haha!

@latebloomer: I hear you on the RSVPs! WTF?

AND I invited 157 people. Solid ‘yes’ from 69. Missing some RSVPs – but if the missing ones say yes, at best its 77. From what I learned, no response usually means no in my life, I think I’ll sign the final contract at 71 or 73. That’s less than a 50% yes rate. That number makes me sad.

Well, I was pretty lucky with rsvps getting a lot back, but then there are some people who tell me they won’t know till the last minute because of work or something like that. But seriously, I don’t want to tell the caterer a number with the slight possibility that you may go. Grr…
