Ya, that’s annoying. But, I figure those who know they aren’t going to make it tend to put the invitation out of mind.

Ugh, I’ve had my own RSVP drama. Tons of people did not return it, so I had to track the people down and ask them. Some of the people I tracked down, I had to ask a couple times before they’d give an answer….SOME people still have not given us a straightforward answer — you know, lots of “I might be there…it depends on _______________, my schedule is just so crazy that I don’t know right now…” 


Haha, but I had one person send back a blank RSVP! They didn’t check accept or decline and I was like what am I supposed to do with this?? So Fiance (it was one of his friends) had to contact the person and see if they were coming or not. 

I think unless people hae actually planned a wedding and know how awful it is that they don’t take RSVPs seriously. It’s been very difficult for me to get my grandmother and Future Mother-In-Law to realize that I NEED a number of guests to work with. My grandmother is constantly saying “well, they just don’t know.” And I’m thinking then have the decency to take the time to decline at this point. If they still don’t know and the wedding is THIS close…then it’s probably a no.
