So, I just went through my list, and realized that I am missing quite a few RSVPs – mainly from my cousins! I didn’t really want to invite most of them in the first place (we aren’t close) but there was one that I did want to invite, so I was forced to send them all invitations. Which I did. And only one has bothered to RSVP at this point. One of these cousins that I dislike is getting married 2 weeks before I am. I sent my invitations out on 7/23 – she only sent hers out 2 weeks ago. Even though her wedding is before mine, I am refusing to send back my RSVP to her wedding until she sends back MY RSVP – I know, it’s stupid, and it’s petty, but it is making me feel better.

Maybe if you send your RSVP she will remember to send yours back

Ugh, I am dreading this situation as well. Honestly, is it THAT hard for people to check a little box yes or no and then mail the card?
I hope your cousin gets the hint!

but her wedding is before yours? maybe she is waiting for YOU to send yours back!

I would send yours back just to show her how it is supose to go. By holding on to hers she thinks it’s ok not to have returned yours.

I agree with you, I would do the same thing. It is annoying when people don’t RSVP.

I don’t know, it might not work. lol I understand the need to vent here about people not responding in a timely manner but they are lazy, they are forgetful, they procrastinate and if they’re family they’re likely to have “RSVP’d” in their own minds but not directly to you:)
I had to pick up the phone and corral the stragglers. It’s just a given and really not worth getting upset about.

It’s actually kind of a stand-off. I mean, I don’t really want her at my wedding, and I know that she doesn’t want me at her’s, either – I figured since I sent my invitations a whole month before she did, that gives me the right to let her make the next move – if she says yes, then I’ll go to hers, and if she says no, then I will stay away. I know, it sounds stupid, but that’s what happens when you are required to invite people that you really don’t want at your wedding.
