We’re 4 weeks from our deadline and we have over 50% still outstanding.  And I agree, it’s people who I never thought wouldn’t send cards back.

What is wrong with people?!  I went through the same thing.  Both my husband and I sent out a mass email to everyone we knew kindly “reminding” them to send in their RSVP.  We needed them for entree choices, so we said if we didn’t receive them within a week, they weren’t eating!  I think it got the point across. 🙂  And we had to get our parents to make a few calls too.

I don’t get people. At all. Hey! Hey, buddy, I gave you a stamp. Make a decision. One decision. I’ve been making stupid decisions for months, pal. MONTHS! Trivial decisions so you could or could not (please check one) have a good time at the party!

It’s not like sitting on the RSVPs turn them into dollar bills. The RSVPs are going to get buried, people will lose them and forget.

Almost worse? People we know are coming, haven’t sent in RSVPs. They’re booking hotel rooms.

I don’t deny that not returning an RSVP card is bad form, truly.  I have, however, called one couple to RSVP because I knew that they would not receive the mailed RSVP prior to the cut-off date.

I also don’t deny how incredibly annoying and frustrating it is to have people fail to respond altogether – whaddya supposed to do, use a Magic 8 Ball to determine whether or not the non-responders might show? 

However, I am going to give the masses the benefit of the doubt, and say that people don’t do it to be overtly rude.  The truth of the matter is that it is another piece of mail that needs to be sorted, and dealt with . . . kind of like a bill with a must-pay-by deadline.  And they haven’t been living, breathing, and sleeping wedding planning like we Bees!

((Hugs)) to the OP – hopefully your MoH, BM(s), or your Parents can help you out with this one.
