Poor you. Have you tried calling the RSVP-challenged people? I know that’s a big job with 60(!!!) of them, but maybe your family or members of your wedding party could split up the hit list.

Ugh.  We just started calling people.  Divided the list up between my husband, me and both sets of parents and eventually tracked almost everyone down.

That is insane?  People don’t understand that you can’t have an unlimited supply of food available for whoever deigns to show up.

When will people learn to keep their comments to themselves?!? I’m at the point where I want to tell people not to come because of their comments.

All they have to do is check yes or no on the rsvp and drop it in the mail. How hard is that?

@crebre80: haha i love your attitude now – i guess they’ll learn that they ain’t HBIC and have to walk on out to the mailbox and send back their RSVP card like the rest of the world. weirdos. they seem to be so concerned with YOUR etiquette that they’re ignoring their own! old people are like that though lol. sawwi!

Personally, if you can, I’d sic someone else on these people (re: your aunts) like your mom to set ’em straight. If she pulls rank, then they’re more likely to stfu.

It boggles my mind that anyone has that much difficulty returning an RSVP card. Seriously people – check the box next to “yes” or “no” and put the damn thing in a mailbox! Is this so intellectually challenging that some people just cannot handle it? Gah!!

@crebre80: My mama is known as the mean one or the one who doesn’t mind keeping it real. I’ve been sticking her on a lot of people, and I am starting to act like her now. lol I say have your mama deal with them.

LOL! I just remembered talking to my youngest sister the other day and she bitched over having to snail mail something. When I asked her what the problem was, she said “Oh, I hate having to walk to the post office.”

“Uh, you know that the mailmen come to you. You can just put the mail in your mailbox, raise the flag, and they’ll pick it up from you.”

“Really?” she said.

I swear, she’s not a dummy–she’s in school at Stanford–but sometimes I wonder. Maybe you’ve got guests who’ve forgotten such charms of the USPS?

I am going to dread the RSVP process.  Hope things work out/no more comments from your aunts.

Wow, how ridiculous! This is the reason I’ve been changing my mind from an open seating layout (pretty common around here) to a specified seating chart so that those who feel free to show up without an RSVP will be waiting until those who have RSVP’d are properly seated and fed. Also, our venue (and others that we’d checked out) do not allow you to bring home the additional food left over. So are they really expecting you to order 60 extra plates that may never be eaten by guests and that you cannot bring home?! Glad you were able to track most of them down.
