I have to say it. I just do. We are 2 days from our RSVP deadline and still have 77 out. So the other night I emailed a few people on facebook to see if they are coming or what. I said please let me know because the final headcount is due to the caterer soon. I said” Hey there. Just wondering if you are able to make it to the wedding. The RSVP date is fast approaching and we haven’t heard from ya. Please let me know if you can make it or not so I can give the final headcount to the caterer. Thanks Bunches”
Guess how many people emailed me back????? ONE! I emailed probably 15 people and ONE responds. What makes me mad is when I logged onto facebook and notice that about half of them have recent status updates.
Sorry for the vent. Thanks for listening.

I know the feeling – but rest assured it’s not just weddings that make people this crazy! I have lots of classmates that won’t respond to email about assignments but will be on Facebook all day.
Maybe some of them need to talk with their SOs before responding? The best solution if they haven’t responded to your email is to call them. I hope you hear from them soon!

@mrskisstobe: Ugh…this was my #1 pet peeve. You know when they get the invite that they KNOW if they can come or not then…so WHY are they delaying sending back the RSVP? How hard is it to write your name, check a box and pick what you want to eat??

We even made it easy on them and didn’t make them pick a meal choice. We sent out save the dates months ago. There are about 5 of them that my Fiance has tried to text or call and find out if they are coming and they haven’t responded to them. I am about to email them and say, I understand you are really busy, so we will count you out on the wedding and we will miss you.
What I really want to say is..since your rude ass can’t tell me whether or not you are coming, I will make it easy…DONT COME!
Is there some sort of PC way to say to those who RSVP’d thank you and to those who haven’t that we will miss them at the wedding? I don’t want all these people showing up who didn’t have the courtesy to RSVP.

I agree that it’s annoying, but you have to remember that while your wedding is the center of your world right now, it’s probably not even close to the center of theirs. Days fly by, and people just forget sometimes.
That being said, super annoying that you emailed and made it easy for people, and you only got one reply. I’d be ticked.

I think I am just most upset that people couldn’t even respond to a freaking email. It takes 2 seconds! I understand that people have stuff going on and may not be able to make it to the wedding. That’s fine but at least have the decency to tell me. I am not going to make you tell me why you can’t make it. No biggie but at least tell me, don’t make me track you down.
