@SimplyChic11: ((Hugs)) Sorry to hear that.

As for your grandpa, would he have to travel to come to the wedding? He may not be in good enough health to attend.

As for the other non-respondents, if it’s after the due date, it’s time to just start asking outright.

For your housemates, ask each one in person. For the others, split up the non-respondents and call. Not the most fun, but needs to be done.

@SimplyChic11: I’m so sorry 🙁 While it definitely sucks, it’s also very possible your grandpa is in too poor health to travel or just not comfortable with it. My grandparents are no longer comfortable with traveling much distance either.

I agree with PP, start making calls. A lot of people forget to RSVP, or they mail it back on the deadline which means the response comes late to you. Hopefully you’ll have more support once you start checking up on your other guests 🙂

My grandpa lives 5 minutes from where my wedding will be held and he might not come. The reason for this is that he is 94 and it would all be too big a deal and tiring for him. He also says that he doesn’t even buy green bananas, let alone promise to go to something months in the future. If he had to travel, there would be no chance at all of him coming. 

I’m sad about all of this, but I know that it doesn’t reflect how he feels about me. He’s OLD and things are harder for old people. If he doesn’t come, then my Fiance and I will just have to visit him on our own either before or after the wedding. Maybe you and your Fiance could arrange a trip to visit your grandpa after the wedding.

@SimplyChic11: How old is your grandfather now? 

I obviously don’t know your history, but all I’m saying is that this might not be the slight that you see it as.
