Doesnt this happen to EVERYONE with RSVPs? 6 doesnt seem that bad. Just calm down and track them down like every other bride has done. I anticipate having to do this in a few months.

I would just call them, leave them a voicemail, and say that since you haven’t received their RSVP back yet you’re marking them as a “no” and they will be missed.  Sorry bubs!

@hiroshymatetrastar:  If you’ve told them that they realize they are marked as not coming.  I would have someone up front by the name cards or whatever you’re doing for seating and if they show up they can tell them there isn’t a place for them since they didn’t RSVP yes.  I had someone sitting at the table that I had everyone’s name at and that’s exactly what happened.

I’m glad I’m not the only one putting my foot down. We are getting married in 16 days and i still have 5 i haven’t heard a peep from after countless attempts to contact them. Finally yesterday i gave up. i said i dont care anymore if they hadn’t responded that if they hadn’t then they were out. Sadly some of these non-responders are FI’s stepbrother, stepsister and until yesterday his father!!! I too HATE RSVPs!!

@hiroshymatetrastar:  I have only gotten 8 response cards back.  I didnt give ones to my (siblings and their families, my parents, and his parents). I sent out about 28 invities by mail. I for sure thought I would have more in the mail by now… I already know I am going to have to track them down.

I would have been thrilled if we only had 6 to track down!!  We had 44!  And that was about 40% of our guest list  🙁
