I’m glad you looked at the post mark, it will probably be the process of elimination now.   It’s fun when they all start coming in!

I would agree- If you’re willing wait to see, and I bet the process of elimination will help.  If you are close enough with who you think it is, why not just call and say, gee, we got an RSVP that we’re thinking was yours, but has no name.  Chances are, people would remember writing their name, so they might say, “oh, yeah, whoops! we never did that part” or something. The sooner you call, the better your chances are, because you can say, ‘we just got it’

Do people not put their return addresses on the RSVP envelopes? Seems like that would help avoid all of this! Glad you have an idea who it is, though.

I felt SO bad being a 2011 Bride msyelf and having sent back my friends RSVP card for her wedding without our names, just our meal selections! Luckily she knew it was me!!! UGH!

@iheartnerds: Just wanting to know when you sent your invites?  When did you ask for your rsvp card to be returned!  The reason I am asking, I just sent mine out last Friday for our September 24th wedding and I have gotten 4 back!  I was kinda hoping people would send them back once they got them!  Im like a kid at christmas waiting for the mail man to get here! LOL

@iheartnerds:  I’m sure it will all work out and hopefully, your markers will do the trick on the others. 

My suggestion to all brides-to-bee: Put a code (# or letter) on the back of all RSVP cards and make a template with corresponding names.

Many people in our group don’t include the return address when they mail back the RSVP. Good thing we put their name on the RSVP card so we know who it’s from. 

Off topic, but my Fiance once mail a contract to the vendor, however he flipped the address because he wasn’t paying attention where the address is supposed to go. So the mail went right back to us instead to to vendor. 

I think people these days don’t use mail often and forgot what they need to do when they mail anything out.

@iheartnerds:  I hate to admit this, but I had to look up what color switcher markers are!
