LOL, I feel you! My mom never RSVP’d.  I would keep nagging her about it, and she would say “Well you obviously know I’m coming!” and I would reply “Yeah, well your RSVP has a stamp on it, so SEND IT BACK!” She never did.

I always send RSVP’s back immediately, even If I can’t make it.  It is just common courtesy to give someone an answer.  I hate playing the waiting game, so I try not to do it to other people.

I for one say you just ring all the people up and get a def. yes or no. That will help reduce your stress!

@mrskisstobe:  Wow, you literally did everything for them.  I mean, how hard is it to circle “yes” or “no”.  I feel for you.  Take deep breaths!!!

that is annoying and frustrating…My brother told me not to even bother with  sending an RSVP to him cause he was not going to mail it back, his logic was i’m going to be there so don’t ask.

@mrskisstobe: Check yes or no. I am not asking for your first born or for blood. Send me my shit back for crying out loud.

Ha!

Can you enlist your mom or Future Mother-In-Law to lean on some of the family to send back the RSVP or confirm?

Don’t feel like a bridezilla. I feel like no one ever knows the pain of the RSVP until they’ve planned a wedding themselves! I never understood why it was so difficult to check yes or no and chicken or beef. It’s why I immediately send back my RSVP as soon as I get it.

Most people know that they can or can’t go. It’s not like everyone is deciding, “Hmmm…should I wash my hair that day or go to so and so’s wedding? Tough choice…” Just send it back already!
