So, our wedding is just weeks away and we are still missing RSVPs! Some are from good friends of ours. I have started contacting them and most are saying they sent them in weeks ago. Are they all getting lost in the mail, or what?
Anyone else having this problem? Is it tacky chasing down the RSVPs? Do I just assume they are coming?
Any advise helps!!!

Oh…have you been getting any RSVPs that add people to it that weren’t invited? For example, a couple we invited added their adult daughter and her boyfriend to the RSVP. This has happened more than once.

eeek! i didnt have problems with them getting lost but there were several RSVP’s i didnt recieve so if they were close friends or family i straight up called them – if it was DH’s side i went to his mother and had her track people down for answers – i dont see anything wrong with calling people if you know them well enough – if it happened to be a family friend or someone i dont see much i kind of just assumed they werent coming and didnt include them in my final number. luckily those people didnt show up!
as far as people adding guests – that is a huge pet peeve of mine and i think a lot of brides – there isnt much you can do except 1. tell them your venue only holds so many people and you were just expecting the two of them or 2. just let them come and avoid the stress if you can afford another 2 people.
im so sorry you are having to deal with this with just weeks to the wedding – good luck!
