Good point!  It definitely has gotten a fire under our behinds to send back RSVP’s in a timely matter now that we have been through it.

Ditto for us about the RSVPs…before I would play it fast and loose with the return date, not realizing how important it is – now, any RSVPs are in the mail a.s.a.p.!

Haha – I was just having these thoughts the other day! Man you take weddings for granted, and all the work put into them.

I’m excited for this fall to be SURE to put my RSVP’s in the mail as soon as I get them, and to enjoy the ceremony (most likely cry), and thank the bride for all she did because we all know it’s not easy!

…buy a gift that wasn’t on the registry.

…mail an RSVP close to the deadline, they will always be mailed the day I receive the invite with a note saying how excited I am to attend/sad to miss it.

I will never:

…expect an open bar

…be offended if they request “no children”

…expect a thank you note to come within a month of the wedding

How about never judge anothers wedding? It was so hurtful when our low key, simple somewhat private wedding was judged and crucified by some of DH family. I would never want someone to feel bad about how they got married or the way they did their special day. I feel like I still have to stand up for us a year later.

Look at a wedding the same again! I will always always pay attention to the detail the bride put into it.

I’m being bad about the RSVP one right now – we still have 3 weeks until they officially need to be in. But, the wedding is OOT a few weeks before ours – FH is definitely going, but I’m still tracking our planning progress to see if I can make it too (we’re rapidly running out of available weekends between graduation parties, weddings, showers, etc.).

I figure I’m not being too awful if I don’t mail it back until 5 days before the RSVPs are due . . . right?

… Assume that everyone’s family is made of money and that the bride and groom didn’t pay for it themselves.

… Send out an RSVP late to wonder if I am even expected to go or not.

…Question the overall style that was chosen for the dresses, since it might have not been something the bride chose by herself.

This post makes me smile.

My first RSVP (other than our mothers LOL) came back today and it was from another bride who’s wedding is a week after ours. (I sent the RSVP for her wedding out the day after I got the invite – she should be getting it in the mail today too!)

It made me smile because I know she knows, as a bride, that when it comes to the RSVPs – the earlier the better!

All of the above! Especially, realizing all the work that goes into planning a wedding! My mom said today, I don’t know what’s so stressful planning a wedding. I almost bit her head off!
