yikes!!! I dont know but I hope you figure this out soon. 

Is it clearly written Hendricks? Is there a possibility youre misreading it?

OH, VM. The fun never stops for you, huh? So NOBODY knows who these people are? That’s really really weird. I don’t even know what you do in that situation since you don’t know their number or anything. I’m really sorry! Is there a return address they put on the RSVP? Can you work backwards from where they live and figure it out that way? Jeez. This is one I haven’t heard before!

Maybe the Crazies invited them…

That is really weird!  I have never heard of anything like this before.  Maybe they are wedding crashers with good enough manners to RSVP to something they weren’t invited to?  😉

But my only question is how would they have gotten ahold of one of your RSVP cards?

Yeah, I ran into the same thing.  I actually got one back that just had “no” checked – no other information.  Less of a problem, but it took us quite a while to figure out who it was!

Is there a postmark on the envelope that might give a clue as to where they are? (That’s what finally clued us in, though then it was still a process of elimination waiting for other RSVPs from that city to come in.)

Maybe they bought it on eBay!

Have any of your female cousins, friends, relatives recently gotten married and changed their last name?

VM…your posts crack me up. I am not laughing at you…but at all of the kooky situations you have been dealing with during your planning process. Did you maybe invite a single female who has since gotten married? Did they have a return address you can use to find out who they are? That’s just plain weird.

How does that even happen? Are you the same bride whose guests were selling the +1’s? If so, I really cannot wait to see how your wedding turns out. I am imagining paparazzi and helicopters overhead at this point.

I’m guessing no return address? The only way I can think of is waiting until after your deadline and calling those who are on the list but haven’t responded. Maybe one will confess to selling their invitation.

Wow VM I am terrified of sending my invites now, especially after reading about your guests selling their +1s and now this! I wouldn’t be surprised if someone sold their invite at this point…

The only other thing that I can think of is did someone fill in a fake name just as a joke to mess with you? I could see one of our crazy friends doing that..just make up a couple to stress you out?

VM- Where did you meet your friends?!

Your post keep making me laugh more and more!

I would guess just waiting until all the RSVP’s come in and you will be able to find out who sold it!

Man I wish I was invited to your wedding and could sell my 1+ or whole RSVP!

Can you make out the post mark at all to figure out what town they’re from?
