So, I just got a Rsvp today in the mail with no name…
Should I go ahead and call everyone I sent invites to? Or wait until the end and try to piece together who it could of been?
Seriously who doesn’t know to write your name on it?

I would wait til the RSVPs are due. That way you can use a process of elimination and someone will probably say “oh, I thought I sent mine in..” when you call to follow up with those that didn’t respond.

Wait until two days after the RSVP deadline, and then call everyone who hasn’t replied yet. When you find the no-namers, try to make light of the fact that they forgot to put their names on the RSVP, so they don’t feel too embarrassed about it. 🙂

Actually I think you should totally embarrass them. 😉
But you should wait until the rsvp deadline. No use calling everyone when you could call back a much smaller number of people.

I had one person do the same exact thing. When it came time to wedding time, I was able account for everyone either by email, fb, call or text. I still have no idea who didn’t write their name but checked off the ‘cannot attend’ box.
It boggles my mind to this day who could have done such a thing.

haha yeah just wait, it happens to many brides. I actually strongly considered putting each guests return addresses on our RSVP cards to avoid this, but I was so tired of waiting to send mine out I didn’t lol. But yeah, just wait til after the RSVP date.
ps, my parents are several times guilty of not putting their names on the RSVP card!

If you have out of towners, does the postmark include the city/state? That may help narrow it down further…

Serabell, ooh good call! I never would have thought of that.

Serabell, for me, it didn’t help because my wedding was in Philadelphia and the postmark said Philadelphia. 🙁 I would suggest numbering the back of the each RSVP card.

seriously, it’s threads like this that make me wish we did traditional RSVP cards! our rsvp’s are all online, but I would LOVE to see what jacked up responses I could get… or maybe it would only piss me off lol! stupid people can be a pet peeve of mine… ugg

I would wait till the end. You’ll figure out who it is when one of your non-responders says they thought they sent it in.

I got this helpful hint….
Label the RSVP’s w/ #’s on the back….then write out a corresponding list of the invites – this way if someone forgets to write their names in, you can flip the card over and figure out the corresponding #…..
Little to late for some but hopefully some others can benefit from it!

Serabell!! Thank you for that helpful hint. I looked at the post mark, and it narrowed it down to a few people….and it turned out to by my Fiance’s PARENTS!!!
Thanks everyone for your helpful advice!
