I saw many a bee that sent out their invitations and carefully, undetectedly numbered each of their RSVPs to avoid my problem. I thought “oh no, it couldn’t happen. who wouldn’t write their name on the RSVP? my friends are very sharp. they will know.”
but then they didn’t.
and we got an RSVP for “3.”
looking through our list, we have quite a few “3”‘s that haven’t responded yet. What’s the protocol here? Call each of the groups?

I would wait till all your RSVPs come in then if it’s still unclear call those that have “not RSVP” yet.
We had a couple no names as well and were able to decipher from the return address. One though didn’t even have a return address so we had to guess and was right when we confirmed.

Can you figure it out by the canceled zip code above the stamp, if not then you would have to call them.

Had an RSVP card come back with the person writing they aren’t able to come, but didn’t put their name on it. We did postcards – cheaper that way on postage and production. So, we had no clue who it was and couldn’t recognize their handwriting! The zipcode stamp was smeared so we didn’t even know what state it came from. Grrr. It was frusterating but funny at the same time!

The incognito number trick is the best bet! Sorry you didn’t do that.
I would definitely wait until most of your RSVP’s come in. I wouldn’t want to waste the time calling people if I didn’t need to. Hopefully, you’ll be able to figure it out without much effort.

I think numbering them is Such a good idea, but was hoping that my friends and family would know enough to write their names… After reading this I’m definitely going to number!
Good luck finding out who it was!

also – no return address, and no postage zip to be read. :(. let the guessing games begin. We’ll have to start calling soon!
