@jen 42713:  Geez…some people! LOL I can’t for the life of me understand how we as brides can make the RSVP process any easier for people. We address the return envelope, put a stamp on it and all we ask is that they write their names and choose their meal! Or check the decline box and mail it back! I will assume whoever doesn’t reply will not be in attendance. Good Luck!

@jen 42713:  not sure why people are in such a mood about it. You are just wanting people to get the food they prefer which is a considerate thing to do. Can you choose for them? Let the caterers work it out for the non responders ?

I feel for you… tracking down RSVPs and the whole Reply Process in general sucks.  It really is the most difficult part of Wedding Planning.

Sounds like your Boss is coming to the Wedding more out of “obligation” than anything else (sorry hon… but I didn’t read any joy in his reply)

Which is WHY according to Etiquette there is no need to Invite anyone ever from the Office… so as to keep work life seperate from home life… too bad you didn’t know that ahead of time (too late now tho)

As for Cousin… you need to call him up and tell him you NEED A YES OR NO not a maybe.  “Maybe” won’t feed him.

For Fiance’s side of the family… follow up with MOG.  She must know how to contact these people.  If they are YESes and you still can’t get a food choice, just “wing it”.  I’d just order them whatever is the most popular.  Chances are anyhow that if they aren’t to their liking day off that your Caterer will have prepared a few extra of the other plate and will make the required switch.

Hang in there… it’ll soon be over
