Uuuuuuuuuuuuugh. I mean really people, why do you think I included a pre-paid return envelope? If I didnt want them back, I would have spent the extra 15$ on candy, not stamps. Undecided

yeah people dont like sending back rsvps for some reason… its too much effort I’m guessing ? Undecided  this is why i set up online rsvp so they didnt have that excuse but I still had to chase them down

@ohheavenlyday: hahahaha this seriously happened like 15 times while I was home for the bridal shower. Even one of the groomsmen was like, ‘Uhhh…do I have to send it in? I mean, obviously I’m coming.’ PS this is someone who got married less than a year ago. It’s not like he doesn’t know how it works.

Come on people! I seriously made it as easy as possible. Stamped and everything.

oh, i know! my favorite is “we talk all the time, you KNOW i’m coming.”

how about NO – i don’t, unless you send in the flippin’ card. i only have gotten 6 back out of 25 and the cut off date is the 25th! ugh….

LOL yeah pretty much all of DH’s extended family did that. Because Mother-In-Law is Italian and family is her world she insisted we send courtesy invitations to extended family members who we knew couldn’t make it to the wedding. When we asked her if they were ever going to send back the RSVPs, she went, “Oh, they know you were inviting them just to be polite, so they didn’t think it was necessary to RSVP when you already knew they were a ‘no’.

Give me a break. I send you a courtesy invite, you send me a courtesy RSVP!

The funniest part was that one of her “won’t come for sure” guests ended up RSVP-ing ‘yes’ last minute and flew up from the US for the wedding!

@linguo42: lol the same thing happened to me! I didn’t consider anyone a no until I had that damn card back. People change their mind all the time.

I sent my friends back, right on the cut-off day, but she didn’t have a stamp on it. Aren’t you supposed to do that?

LOL oh man.

I have to NAG my mom to send hers back when they get invited to weddings. I don’t get why it’s so hard. Just fill it out as soon as you open it and send it back ASAP! easy peasy

@Ms. Martian: You’d think people who’d been through it before themselves would understand and be the first ones to get that RSVP filled out and in the mail, but apparently that’s crazy talk, lol.

Haha that’s really funny! So far I haven’t had anyone say that. But I have had people say, “I’m coming to your wedding!” But no RSVP yet. To count numbers I just add them regardless… who knows if they’ll send the thing back or not.
