I’m getting pretty frustrated at this point. We have 155 YES, 64 NO and still missing 53. Our final meeting with all of the vendors is next week so we need to have a final headcount…AND my parents & Fiance are dragging their feet on asking people #$%^@ They just don’t understand! So frustrating lol

ahhh yes the people who don’t rsvp…. it’s crazy!!! I am waiting on 35 people… most of them FI’s friends who probably have no clue the importance of RSVP-ing. It should be common knowledge that hey gee if I asked you for a yes or no its because I need to know, right? But… noooo.

Hopefully we get it straightened out soon! There are a few people I honestly think may say yes and may have to back out last minute. That will kind of stink but oh well. Life happens.

Ack I’m feeling so bad for everyone who has heaps of peeps to chase up. I nagged my lovely Fiance to chase up the last of the stragglers this week (they were all on his side). Done! Everyone has rsvp’d. 5 declines. 2 were FI’s father’s friends who will be on the other side if the world. One is FI’s old not-very-close-any-more friend who is a massive flake, and two are two not-so-close-any-more family members of mine. Their decline, which wasn’t even given directly to me, was very hurtful as they had previously been very excited about the wedding. But now want nothing to do with the family. Yeeeeah. After me questioning them I found it was nothing to do with me, but gee, to not even let me know they weren’t coming! I never would have found out unless another family member dragged it out of them. Wow.. Whatta rant!

After RSVPS came in, I had a total of 4 surprises drop outs in the last 2 weeks, and 2 surprise additions (I was not happy with any of them.) All of these were people who mothers of the bride or groom specifically fought us to add (either before they dropped out, or forced me to add last week…)

 

People…. please just stop…. I might turn my phone off until the wedding. 😛

@Asia:  I like your style with no phones…..

 

Our deadline was today and we were waiting for 27.  I got home and anticlimatically there were NO responses today.  Now I didn’t think we’d get all 27 back but seriously none?!  I can’t decide if listening to everyone being in the same boat or worse makes me feel better or more flabergasted that people don’t respond.  Now I am by no means the best at responding myself, but anytime I’ve even thought my response would be late I’ve contacted the couple to tell them it was in the mail.  

 

Oh well, back to stalking the mailbox.
