Oh yeah! In my case, it’s not a huge deal because ours will be a tiny wedding, but it’s still bloody annoying! I made the RSVP cards, addressed the reply envelopes and bought the darn stamps! How hard can it be to check a box and walk to the mailbox! Grrrr! I feel your pain.

i’m not dealing with this (yet), but it’s something i’m dreading happening! i’m not spending all that money on response cards and postage, just to receive a text from someone. like you said, they’re stamped, they’re addressed, just write your name, check yes/no, and drop it in the mail box!

if it does happen to us (and i’m almost positive it will), i’m going to tell people that if they want a seat at the wedding they must send in the card, otherwise they risk being overlooked/forgotten about. we’re inviting over 300 people, anticipating about 250, so it’s easy to get overwhelmed by everybody.

Ugh … I know this feeling.

I feel like I wasted money on stamps. =/

This was one of my biggest frustrations during planning. ALL they have to do is check/fill in and then seal it and walk their butts to the mailbox! I don’t even need an explanation. Just send me mail! Lol.

I got THREE blank RSVPs and I can’t tell which is worse – not getting anything back at all or not knowing who the heck it is. 😉 At the end of the day, it’s not going to matter all that much. Just do what you have to do (whether it’s call people, take their RSVP over the phone or email, guess?) especially if you need it for your venue or caterer. For whatever reason, people SUCK at this.

Good luck! Your wedding is just around the corner OP!

I agree! We sent our invites out 2 weeks ago and Fiance and I are getting the RSVPs via HIS MOTHER! Seriously ppl! I spent some money on the stupid ‘Aloha’ stamp so you dont have to! You can come to the wedding? Great…write you name and put it in your mail box! Done and done! Ugh!

And people questioned me when I decided to delete my facebook account. Get rid of it.

I hate that people never rsvp. Why is it so hard? I, obviously, haven’t dealt with this toward the wedding yet, but I have for other smaller parties not wedding related [like my daughter’s birthday party that’s coming up very soon- nobody’s said anything yet]. It’s not that difficult! It says please respond. Is it that hard to understand that we’d like a response?!

As far as getting blank cards back, I’ve heard people say to put a small number on the back of the card [or somewhere inconspicuous] so you know who sent it, even if they didn’t fill it in.
