No, it is not a thing of the past. Most people just dont think about how much of a pain it is for the bride and groom to track them down, or they assume you know they will be coming. Personally even though i know someone is coming i still want an RSVP back from them because i paid good money for postage.

I think this is the number 1 problem every bride deals with. You aren’t alone.  Just wait till the deadline passes and start facebooking or texting people.  You don’t really NEED the final guest count till 10 days out, right?

This is pissing me off just over my bridal shower. How hard is it to RSVP on time? Seriously? The peopel who anger me the most though are the ones who have already been married – they should know better!

When is the RSVP deadline?  Most of your guests will wait to mail the replies until just before the deadline, and many mail them ON the date they’re ‘due’ or a few days later.

Give it a week after the deadline, and then call those who have not yet sent their responses.

My RSVP deadline was last friday (4/20) and last night I had to hunt down people that refused to respond to my phone calls, texts and FB messages. I had some people say “oh I had planned on getting back to you…” WHEN!?!?

My deadline was 4/15 and I still have 80 or so people who can’t be bothered to tell me whether or not they’re coming. Joy.

my RSVP deadline is in 10 days and we have received less than half the responses.  what is most annoying to me is many of them are our closest family members that you would expect to be excited and want to respond.

People are scatterbrained. Give a day or two after the deadlines to let the late ones roll in, and then call everyone who’s left. It’s gonna tick me off too, but you just have to take a deep breath and do it.

Everyone has been rsvping to my mom….not me! She called me last night telling me over 10 people let her know they would be coming. I was not pleased!

I’m fully expecting to have to chase down over 50% of our invitees. Sad thing is, I can tell you in advance who many of them are going to be.

*sigh*

My deadline is in a week, and we are missing 75 RSVP’s! It drives me crazy that people are too lazy to let me know if they will come to the wedding or not. It’s really not that hard to check a box and mail a card that already has the address and stamp on it.
