Just a mini-rant….I find it INCREDIBLY infuriating that FIVE of the RSVPs we’re missing are people who are also planning their weddings. WTF? Was the self addressed and prepayed RSVP card confusing?
PS – WE’re five days past our deadline.

I would be super annoyed too, but at least those five people have better excuses than the other ones that have failed to meet the deadline right? They probably have wedding fever themselves and just overlooked it… 🙂 Trying to find the silver lining! I know what you mean though…it can be incredibly annoying and stressful for you especially so close to your wedding day. Good luck getting those stragglers!

I would just call them and double-check that they’re coming. Don’t let things like this get to you. Some people are really bad about snail mail so they need a little push (in the form of an email or phone call).

Also things get lost in the post all the time!

This is such a pet peeve of mine. I have to walk a few blocks over to the mailbox so I get it, it can be annoying….but most people just have to walk to the end of their driveway or to their mail spot within their building…how hard is it to drop these things in the mail??

The same thing happened to me. Everyone who had to be chased down were people who were either recently married or planning a wedding. One recently married couple have been horrible in that they’ve been trying to negotiate bringing their infant, when the invitation clearly stated “adult reception” as well as “2 seats have been reserved…”. I feel embarassed for them.

Yeah, we have no problem checking in on them and I know that lots of things could have happened, it’s just annoying! I just know that now, after seeing how much work goes into wedding planning, I’m going to be so much more cognizant with these things…especially RSVPs! One of the couples is getting married this weekend so they are in the thick of it! (invites have been out since theirs have been and I found the time to RSVP…because it’s just not that hard….and their’s was one of those mad-lib things. All they had to do on ours was check a box…LoL)

@leembee:Hahaha…one of FI’s friends asked if he could bring his girlfriend and we said it wasn’t possible and he RSVPed with her anyway. I’m bring at least 6 friends if they get married (just kidding…sort of)

that is irritating. i always make sure that i rsvp within a few days of receiving the invite.

Our latest RSVP – by a week – was from a newlywed who should know better.

I can’t imagine not responding to an invitation… I’m having a hard time thinking of any scenario where I wouldn’t. How rude!

Yeah, the only couple that came to our wedding but didn’t RSVP (thankfully, we found out through another relative) is a couple who’s getting married later this year! Go figure.
I was invited to a wedding later this year, too, and I sent in my RSVP the day after I received it.

I am much better about respsonding right away and writing little note on the RSVP. But with the last wedding (well at home reception) I was invited to, it literally took my until a day before the deadline to know if a co-worker could cover my shift. I saw them the day before the deadline and my aunt was already harping.
Yay it sucks to have to deal with, but sometimes things come up. Especially in summer when things get super busy.
