@ChelseaBells:  +1

I have a friend who texted me about the RSVP I owed her…a full 2 1/2 months before the wedding, and she had FORGOTTEN TO INCLUDE AN RSVP BY date on her invitations.  (That’s her fault, not mine)

I told her I figured getting it to her 2 months before would’ve been sufficient…I sent it right away, but I had already planned to send it that week or the next.  I asked if she’d had to remind anyone else and she said “No, you were the only one I had to hunt down about it.” She sent me ONE text message and I responded immediately…hardly hunting anyone down.  That comment was just a little infuriating.

Seriously, weddings make people (brides) crazy.

@trustingbride:  I think it is very rude to not respond with the cards by the appropriate date. Invitations are usually quite costly, being invited to the wedding should be  considered a gift at the least, and people should be courteous enough to respond by the asked date.

Your guest list may be all close family and friends and then it is an honor to be invited.  However, I’ve received several invitations where I don’t really know the bride or groom at all and I know the invitation is because of some perceived necessity on behalf of one of the parents (a work type relationship).  It is NOT a gift to receive those invitiations.  It is a social obligation that I want to decline.  I spend a good amount of time trying to decide how much it will upset someone if I just send a gift and stay home in my sweats.

@fascinated:  Yes, it is most all close family friends and family…plus our wedding is going to be so nice with the dinner, drinks, and favors, that it is a gift to be asked to be a guest at it!

@fascinated:  Plus the bottom line is that it is rude not to return the card regardless of it you are going and excited about it, going and not excited about it, not going and bummed about it, or not going and excited about it. Return the dang card.

@trustingbride:  you’re right.  I do send back the card, but usually wait for the very last minute while I’m deciding what to do.
