Well not a “prank” response but I had someone respond without writing their name on the line that said M________. They just left it blank. After complaining about it on the Bee a few times,  some Bees suggested numbering the back or putting guest’s initials on the back of the RSVP card. We finally found out who the mystery guest was but I wish I labeled the cards.

I numbered the RSVP cards to avoid this 🙂

I recently received a discretely numbered RSVP cards. It takes the mystery out of Boba Fett-signed cards.

@dolly1105:  It sounds like a joke but the way to handle it is pretend you didn’t get it. You wait for the RSVP due date, plus a few days’ grace. Then for any guest who hasn’t RSVP’d “yes” or “no”, you will need to phone them and get an answer.

When my dad rsvp’ed he crossed out the “accepts with pleasure” and wrote “accepts because I have to.” But I was standing right next to him when he did it, and I know his sense of humor. That was as weird as ours got. I numbered the cards and never even needed to use it. 

Just have your FI call the BM and ask If it was him. That’s probably the easiest thing to do.

That is hysterical I’d be in tears if I got something like that.

@abbylyn:  This is brilliant! I had no idea about numbering RSVP cards.

Using a black light pen to number the RSVPs solves this problem 🙂

I’m sitting here laughing my ass off and crying. I may borrow that “idea.”
