haha, even if the information were spelled out in gigantic letters AND they had someone telling them the exact information, they still wouldn’t get it. sigh. i think people scan more than read and comprehend these days. i’m dealing with the same issue planning my class’ reunion!

Thats why I thought RSVP-ing online would be too complicated, especially for the older ones!  And people not reading your invite, I think that was just laziness.  People just want to stress us out with all the other stuff we got going on, thats all!

I can’t believe they thought it was a wedding announcement! Didn’t they know what your date was ahead of time and that they would be invited? Have these people ever gone to a wedding before? You will always get asked about your registry even though it’s on your website – people tend to be lazy and think “I’ll just ask” instead of looking online. At least they ask you instead of going out and buying something off the registry!

I don’t think there’s a way around it, stamped return envelope or online. A wedding is just another night out in the distant future for them. Not very high priority to read carefully and respond accordingly. It’s not like their mortgage contracts..oops, nevermind.

And do they choose to just ignore the RSVP deadline that was CLEARLY printed on there?  That’s another one…from my perspective anyway!

Eek, I’m sorry about that!! I know I’ll never get some of my RSVPs back, but luckily I have a very pushy Future Mother-In-Law who will get me the answers I need. 🙂

But think about the days before you got engaged.  No one is as in to our weddings as we are.  Some people are clueless.  Let’s cut em some slack and smile all the way through the engagement.
