I thought our RSVPs were simple and easy to understand. I even numbered the backs in case anyone forgot to fill out the name slot. They looked like this:
The favour of a reply is requested by September 18th
____ of 2 attending
I got FOUR in the mail today with no number in the blank slot. All FI’s family. When I started freaking out he said to me: “Well, if you send them back it means you’re coming, if you don’t sent it back it means you’re not coming.”
Oh. My. Fing. God.
If this is how this family treats RSVPS, I’m in for a painful few weeks of making phone calls “just to double check my numbers!!”
I need an adult beverage.

Adult beverage it up sister because it sounds like you are in for a lot of phone calls. 🙁

@CupcakeSprinkles: We also did ours the same way, and I have a feeling we will be receiving the same results. Future Sister-In-Law messaged me asking if she can bring her boyfriend, although we sent him his own invite. She then proceeds to tell me she messed up & crossed out the 1 & put a 2 to include them both. I have an inkling this is how the rest of the RSVP’s are going to go…
It’s going to be a long, stressful process. I second that adult beverage.

Oh nooooo…. I second the adult beverage!!
I mean really? It’s that hard to follow directions, write your name, and put a number on a line? I’m so sorry hun… hopefully the rest of the fam gets the idea before they put them in the mailbox.

Man, I Don’t know how RSVP cards can be SO confusing. I’m actually strongly considering NAMING each person on my cards (since I am printing them myself) like:
The favour of a reply is requested by X Date
ATTENDING NOT ATTENDING
Mr. John Doe _____________ _______________
Mrs. Jane Doe _____________ _______________

@TealaB: LOL, great idea. Sometimes you just have to dumb things down for people.

I couldn’t believe the responses I got with a very similar RSVP card. People were so confused by the M__________ line. Who knew that was confusing??
