Haha aww that made me smile!

Didn’t happen to me, but happened to DH’s buddy. He got an RSVP back from someone who obvously couldn’t make it, but instead of just polietly checking the decline box, he wrote

“NO” huge across the whole card in black marker.

Guess he didn’t want to speak now or forever hold his peace at the wedding.

One that takes the cake… “found your invite under a pile of crap…we won’t be coming”

That’s it. No explanation or well wishes, no polite, “wish we could be there but can’t” 


That IS funny about your great aunt though…. I guess if she took the trouble to send it it means she’s coming 😉

I had 1 or 2 I got back with just “yes” or “no” marked, but no name, number of guests, etc. We had postcards, so there was no return address. And the post office smeared the stamp cancellation so bad we couldn’t even read a city or zip code it was mailed from!

Two lessons learned:

– number your rsvp cards so you can figure out who sent them

-put the return address on the rsvp envelope yourself before mailing the invitations

When we reply, we draw a penis on the ‘yes’ side and fill out our names. It’s become a tradition, lol. Its in such bad taste and yet hilarious. Our friends love getting our RSVPs back now (we obvs would not do this for everyone – haha).

@GreenEyedMoon: we did online or phone RSVP’ing and DH’s elderly neighbor mailed back the card and circled the RSVP with ‘we will not be able to attend’ along with a lovely card. It just cracked me up.

@julies1949: or even better – do phone or email RSVP! saves TONS on stamps, and makes it harder to not know who is RSVP’ing 🙂
