btw.. I am Mexican.
How do you get your Mexican fam to RSVP! lol …
in my entire life & plenty of family weddings..Not one person has used RSVP cards.
considering we have a proposed guest list of 200 … Mostly very traditional Mexicans.. I fear they will not understand the importance of the RSVP cards?!

lol, i feel you on this one! all my inlaws also travel on packs…like when they come to visit (and stay at OUR house) they come with 6 people.
we do a lot of word of mouth. its a pain, but thats just how they are and ive learned not to fight it. for holidays and such, i call the matriarch of the family (his aunt) who is the family gossip and she always knows whos coming to what.
you could always put something silly on the rsvp card lilke
please respond by april 30
yes, you actually have to send this card back. look, we even stamped it for you!

You could also include a song request card to be returned with the RSVP. That is what I am doing.

also mexican (half) and am worried about this too, except I’m including all of my sides of the family in the worry. I have tried calling them and emphasizing it repeatedly and they just kind of laugh me off. I guess I’m just hoping for the best! I like the idea of something humorous on the card.

Yeah I feel ya on this one two. Both me and Fiance are Mexican and neither of our family are the RSVP type but I know they’ll get it done plus I can’t aford to go over our guest count! I’ll just end up calling whoever dosen’t rsvp! If it turns out to be alot of people I’ll just ask my mom and sis to help me call around! No over way around this one!
