Alot of people have issues with this.. Hopefully the ones who dont write their name are only declines so you know who shows up and can make a seating chart lol Good luck!!

So frustrating!! Haha. You would think people would understand that they need to put some sort of identification, but I imagine people who haven’t actually planned a wedding might not understand that you actually need to know WHO is declining, rather than simply a general “decline” count. Sigh.

Hopefully that’s your only one! I completely forgot to number mine too and I freaked out about it for a little while but we only ended up getting one without a name and by the time the others came in it was easy to figure out who it was just by process of elimination 🙂 I’ll cross my fingers for you!

I heard of this problem so many times that I put the names on the RSVPs for them and added a space saying “total number of guests attending:”

We got three blank cards back (and several folks did not return their cards either).  I numbered ours, but we still had one guests who grabbed his roommate’s and sent it back blank.  We didn’t realize the mix up for quite some time, so even numbering the cards isn’t 100% fool proof!

What is numbering the RSVPs? Sorry if its a silly question.

Luckily we numbered ours. We got some with no names. Some with unreadable names. RSVP’s were a big stress.

That is one of the many reasons I love WB. I never would have thought to number the rsvps before reading all the horror stories on here about people filling out the rsvps incorrectly. I numbered mine, and it did save the day because we had more than a few people not put their name!

We didn’t number ours, and fortunately we haven’t gotten any back without the names filled in — but we have received several on which people forgot to check “accepts” or “regrets.” Too funny. Fortunately we’ve been able to track them all down and find out which it was!

I have one of those and it’s driving me crazy.  I’ve already contacted everyone I thought sent it in and they’re all coming!!!  So I don’t know wtf to make of it.  So annoying!

I’ve seen so much stress about RSVPs, I’ve been brainstorming making one that is completely idiot proof. I whipped this up in excel in about ten minutes:


I know it’s not as pretty, but if I can get Fiance to agree, I’m so down for dressing this up somehow and using this LOL!
