@Dizbee:  I say ask her for phone numbers and wait 2 more days until the RSVP date is past.

Once the date has passed, call the laggers.

My second bridal shower is this weekend and sadly my Maid/Matron of Honor is still trying to get a few ladies to confirm. I just don’t understand why people just can’t RSVP!

Don’t make this the bride’s responsibility, you should do the follow up once the date has passed.

Ask her for the phone numbers, but wait until the rsvp date has passed befor you start phoning.

ps let’s all make a pact to teach our children good manners- and that includes what rsvp means.

Alot of people wait until the last day, or use that as a return-by/postmark date for rsvp’s. I have been guilty of rsvp’ing at 11:39 on the date (had to wait to find out my work schedule, then a few other arrangements).

Ha- my Maid/Matron of Honor just emailed me today to get email/phone #s for all the non-rsvps. Of the list, 75% are married women…you’d think THEY would know better!

That’s annoying! I know my shower invites went out last week and I’m stressed thinking about people not responding- I won’t know who has responded (SIL  or my mom will) but I don’t want them to have to track down people for a response. How do people not RSVP?? I don’t get it.
