    I vote for the Mystery Attendee cards πŸ™‚ and keeping an eye out at your reception to see who they are. Who doesn’t enjoy a little mystery every now & then?!

    Because I hate surprises, I’d hate to get to the wedding day and not know who if someone extra was going to be there or the numbers/seating would be off.  It’s annoying and time consuming, but I’d probably try to put the word out there to see if it’s someone new or someone you’ve already counted.  Maybe you can enlist the help of family members (like your parents for the families or wedding party for friends) to try to figure it out.

    Is there a stamp on the envelope from where it was postmarked that could help you find out where the person is from?  I had a blank one arrive (said decline) but the postmark was from Long Beach and I only had one person I had not heard from in that city so it was process of elimination. πŸ™‚

    Can you put it on display with a sign asking who sent it? j/k…sort of πŸ™‚

    I vote Honey again.

     

    How in the world did the corner get ripped off? What were they doing to the RSVP before returning it?

    I think you should frame it, and then let your guests vote on who they think did it!

    Theres not a stamp over the stamp you put on the outside of the postcard that has the city it was sent from and date?  I did postcards for my RSVP’s and they all have stamps indictating where and when it was sent from, voiding out the original stamp.

    Maybe they tore off the corner because they wanted it to be a mystery and knew about your secret πŸ™‚

    I would just leave two blank cards or spots for these people. They might not have a sense of humor about the "mystery attendee" thing. Besides, anyone who has this bad of an RSVP FAIL is bound to be one of the guests you already know who RSVP’ed (but then belatedly sent the card too), or not show up in the end anyway.

    Ha ha!  I like pvaulter’s idea of framing it at the reception and having people try and guess who it was.  πŸ˜€

    We just sent out our invites on Saturday so I’m SO looking forward to crap like this! haha.  I don’ t know hor people do it.  We did the numbering thing too, but I never thought about them ripping it off.  Do you think it was on purpose? how strange!  I’d start by calling the people you haven’t heard from yet if it isn’t a huge number…sorry!
