@weddingmaven: +1. it sounds like this is going to end up being a mere misunderstanding. I bet this person thought they were supposed to put a checkmark on the line in in “will __ attend” or to put the # of ppl attending & they got irritated because they couldn’t figure out how to rsvp that they could not attend. so they wrote it separately with the not in caps to highlight to the rsvp-card maker that the wording didn’t allow ppl to decline. so they got annoyed at you, you got annoyed at them, evens stevens.
as for not writing a name. I nearly sealed an rsvp envelope this week when I realized I didn’t write my name on it. It was also a decline. There’s something about declines that makes me forget to write my name or FI’s. usually when I’m attending, I know they might mess up the spelling of FI’s name or mine & that they want the spelling and our names for escort cards, etc. but for a decline, it’s easy to forget that they still need my name when it’s already addressed & stamped & all- I just make a check mark & start to seal it.l

“have an idea it may be a coworkers fiance who is furious shes been engaged 5 years and still no date set.”
Really? Wow…that’s…yeah. I still stick by my original theory and many other PPs that this was just a mistake. You should maybe just let it go and focus on the more happy and positive parts of planning a wedding.

@Pixie26: it was probably an honest mistake!!! Give them the benefit of the doubt, whoever they are.

If they wrote “will NOT attend” AND checked the will not attend box, then yes, that is very rude.
Its hard to say that if not filling out the name was an oversight, or intentional.
I got an RSVP back this week with no return address, no name, no meal selection and here is the kicker…didn’t even check if they were coming or not. Basically sent back the RSVP card the way I sent it to them.

I had the same thing happen to me. I thought it was FI’s parents for a while, but it turned out to be my College principal lady…I think she just forgot to put her name on the front because she appoligized for not being able to make it.

this happened to me as well, which is why i coded all of the rsvp’s so that if i got one back with no name i would know who it was. people are really dumb when it comes to rsvps for some reason, and i thought ahead.
