So I received my own wedding shower invitation today. It’s a couples shower, hosted by a family friend in my hometown. I’m super excited! Thing is, once glancing over the invitation, I realized the hostess neglected to put a phone number/response card in it for RSVPS. Yet is says, “RSVP by March 12.” Uh…
I hope people aren’t totally confused and feel they can’t attend because they don’t know how to RSVP. I’m thinking of calling everyone myself to make ask if they’ll be coming so that my hostess has a head count…or she could do it herself, it’s just, I don’t want her to feel bad about the mistake on the invite. I don’t know how to approach her on this, or whether I should at all, but I have had a cousin and friend call me today to ask just how to RSVP.

I would definitely have her and your bridesmaids make the calls. If you call it could come off as a gift grab since the bride normally isn’t supposed to really be involved. Besides, this is her mistake. She should have to make it right.

I agree. If people call you confused, then go ahead and pass along the info or accept the RSVP. Otherwise, this is the hostess’ responsibility to correct and take care of.

@UpstateCait: yeah I certainly don’t want to make it come across as a gift grab. If I had bridesmaids, they would be awesome and definitely on it, but alas it is just me. I bet she’s already noticed the lil mistake and is trying to make it right…or at least I hope so. She’s just cool like that.

Yea, you should just tell her there is no way to RSVP and give her e-mail addresses and phone numbers if possible. I hosted a baby shower and made a mistake on the registries.. they told me right away, “I didn’t register at Target… etc etc”. I didn’t feel bad, and I knew they would find out eventually. I think she’ll want to know that she messed up. Also, if you don’t mind you can just tell her what friends called you to RSVP and let them know you’ll tell her.
