That is pretty ridiculous!  I totally agree that he should have waited until he had firm plans before RSVPing.

I would probably call him and find out how much of the night exactly he and his girlfriend would be there for… it’d would suck to pay for them for dinner if they aren’t even going to be there!!  I’m kind of worried about a similar type of situation with my uncle and his wife who tend to leave all family events VERY early.

I’ve already had a few people RSVP and just recently have emailed or FB’ed me to change their responses.  Meanwhile, they have until April 1 to get back to us before I start hassling them…i just wish they had waited until they actually knew for sure before responding.

The stranged rsvp I got was from a cousin of mine who can’t come to the wedding because of financial reasons, but he offered to make a video for me and my FH.  He wasn’t entirely clear as to what the video would be for, I don’t even think he has a computer to edit videos, so I’m perplexed.  I’m not sure if he wanted me to pay for his video services or if it was something separate.  Previously my aunt had suggested that I employ him for another aspect of the wedding and I declined.  Who knows…

I’ve gotten more than a couple BLANK rsvp’s… Like they took the time to write their name and how many people but then they don’t check ANY of the options (there are four options for two events….)… Or some of them only checked of “yes” for one (the dinner the night before) but nothing for the wedding… Not yes, not no… I don’t know what to do with that information.

I had a guest RSVP back with 5 names on excluding his. Didn’t know any of them. I called him up and he said they were planning to make a family holiday out of it.

I’ve told him he’s uninvited along with whoever else he has invited! I find I have less patience as the day draws near. *sigh* bridezilla…

That is a very weird RSVP!!  I thankfully haven’t gotten any weird one’s yet, but then again his side of the family hasn’t really sent any back yet.  Got 24 of 71 back and 20 are my side.  I’m sure we will get some interesting ones along the way!  We gave until March 31 since it’s a Saturday.  Good Luck!

Uggg I have one that is driving me up the wall!!! OK so on our RSVP card we asked two things: (1) how many were coming and (2) special dietary considerations.  One friend (married) EMAILED me and said “Just to let you know that X and I should be able to attend both the ceremony and reception” Ummm…OK? What do you mean you should be able to attend? I need to know for sure! And, you didn’t answer my question about dietary needs! 

So I emailed them both back (he CCed her on the email, so I hit reply all) and I asked them basically if this is their idea of a formal RSVP and if they had any dietary considerations. First I get an email back from the wife:  “Yes we are coming and we both don’t eat beef or pork.” 2 seconds later an email from the husband “We should make it. I don’t have any dietary needs but X doesn’t eat beef or pork.”  AHHH!! I still don’t have a straight answer from them.

@9ja4life:  I know the feeling! I got one that has 2 people that we have never heard of and when we called and asked the uncle he said that they are exchange students who he has to bring along.. I don’t understand why they need to come to the  reception when they could go out? Or stay in the hotel?? 

I really think some people have no idea how important the numbers are

@MsJET:  I think that’s true.  Until you plan (and pay for!) a wedding, I don’t think many people truly understand what all goes into it.

I had a friend of my fiance RSVP back and she checked “totally attending” then at the bottom wrote, “Ill most likely be there, but maybe not.” Whats that all about?

I had an RSVP where the person scratched out the M of the M……. for his name and wrote in all caps ‘DOCTOR’ instead.  I was like- really?

I have a few of the ‘blank’ ones too where they wrote out their names but didn’t tell me if they were coming or not.

wow, some of these are crazy.  i only had 1 that was ridiculous.  my rsvp’s had places for each name and what their meal choice is.  my friend’s husband filled in both the chicken and the beef for himself.  my mom is accepting all rsvp’s and she was very confused.  does this mean he doesn’t care or does he want both?  i called my friend to confirm and she says, “oh, yeah, you can just give him both.”  um, no.  i just said, which ONE would he prefer.  my fi always thought he was a pompous ass.  this proves it.
