Our RSVPs are due Sept. 10 and we have a lot that haven’t found their way back yet, which is sad because we only sent out a little over 30. I feel like I am in limbo. There are lot of things I can’t buy until I know how many people are coming. I can see how worrying about 11 people trying to add on at the last minute would be frustrating.

Can’t you just call them? Its either that or risk them showing up, and you being unprepared.

Keke84:  One of the last groups to RSVP for me was my cousin his wife and their five children, and it was definitely a bit nerve racking. I’m so glad to ahve all RSVPs in! 🙂

Wait… the due date is today and you have been bugging them about sending them in? Why were you bugging them before the due date?

Keke84:  My RSVP due date was yesterday for our Oct 3rd wedding and we are still missing a yes/no from 17 adults so I understand how you feel! I am waiting patiently for the mail to come today to see if there are any in there and then I will offically start asking stragglers on Monday 🙂 can’t wait to have my FIRM count so we can finalize our venue bill and do the seating chart!

I didn’t start pursuing outstanding RSVPs until a few days after they were due (in case people had just put them in the mail on the due date – didn’t want to be pushy).  Maybe hold off a bit on contacting people?

Keke84:  well, I’d grab those reigns back, or get on FI. 11 people is a lot to be unprepared for, and 11 people worth of decor and/or food can be a huge waste.

Honestly, I hope my RSVPs go as well as yours have. I’m actually bad at those myself, we always get the reminder calls :/
