It’s super rude…unfortunately people always just assume you KNOW they’re coming. I was so happy once our date to give final numbers to the caterer had passed so then I couldn’t stress about it – at that point I was just like “Whatever, hopefully there’s enough to eat.”

We sent ours February 24th and asked for a response by March 15th.  (Granted that was only 3 weeks notice, yet they got a save the date in Septemeber.)  Well that was yesterday.  We currently have 62 guests attending, 19 no’s and about 75 with no response.  (Well I take that back, Fiance parents and relatives have said they are coming, just haven’t sent the RSVP back in.)  I am going to wait until the 28th to get the card back and then I will start calling.

I remember going through this and it pissing me off so much.  Harsh reality: Remember your wedding is only important to you, it’s just a party for everyone else

We just went through this, so I can totally feel your pain.

We sent out over 100 invites and a lot of people never responded. We wound up reaching out to them and that’s when they RSVP’d, over the phone. Never sent back the response and that made me so angry because I put stamps on the RSVP’s!!!

It’s so frustrating! 23 days to go!

We’re doing RSVP’s through our website. Put the invites in the mailbox on Sunday afternoon and already have 2 RSVP’s!

I’m breaking all rules in the book with our wedding, partly because of this!  

I posted our STD on facebook in a private album for only those I tagged.  Some of the responses left us laughing, too!  I’m also doing a private facebook event, an online RSVP, and sending invites WITH rsvp’s and pre-addresses/stamped envelopes (well, maybe not pre-stamped.  That’ll be up to my Fiance…).  

If we don’t get the cards, we’ll email, message, and call, but I’m pretty sure with using facebook for most of our friends and several family members, it’ll be a lot easier than waiting for the card to be mailed back.

How annoying!  People know whether or not they are going come immediately!
