From lurking this site, I have come to believe almost -everyone- has this problem. People are just so weird and inconsiderate when it comes to wedding invite things, aren’t they? I don’t get it. They don’t even realize the problem they are causing for you… keep strong! Good luck! 🙂

@Jac: I think that everyone has it and to be honest, prior to getting married I was one of those people that needed a reminder about my rsvp. I think people don’t realize how much goes into getting back that little card.

We harrassed and stalked people before the deadline so by Sept 1st, we didn’t have to worry about it anymore. I hate babysitting adults. The thing I tried to remember is that no one focuses on your wedding more than you. I understand your frustation, believe me but in the realm of things, just breathe 🙂

We’re not quite at our deadline yet, but we have still only heard from about 10% of people besides the “of course”s (wedding party & immediate family), and we sent invites out over a month ago. I don’t mind so much if you still aren’t sure and need to work things out, but the worst are the people telling our parents and posting messages to other guests on facebook that they are definitely coming and we still haven’t gotten their RSVP yet. If you are telling a bunch of people you are coming, how about letting the bride and groom know?

It is so annoying. BUT I think that unless you have been behind the scenes of planning a wedding, nobody really understands how important the RSVP’s can be. Im sorry you are having these issues though, it makes it hard to tie everything together.

We got some two days before the wedding with more people in the party than we had alloted for. It’s all nuts. In the end, it all works out. No one will be without a seat!

Yeah, I’m definitely going through that right now. Just remember, they’re your friends, and they’re not *trying* to be rude. They’re most likely just forgetful!

lol I dont know but it does seem to be a common problem, once people get married they seem to realize the importance 🙂

My mom has had this problem and she badgered everyone to get them back. They were probably annoyed but she got her count like she needed.
