I’m not real sure what to do here. I am throwing a bridal shower for my best friend on the 13th and I have only gotten two RSVP’s, both no’s. The RSVP date that I used was the 5th so they have a couple more days but what do I do if I don’t hear from everyone? When I get married I contacted people but they were all my friends and family. I don’t know most of these ladies.
I’m sure the bride will give me contact information for the ladies I invited but is that okay? Should I e-mail them or call?

@Birdee106: I would call, just be super sweet and give yourself an introduction. The bride could technically do it but I think if you are throwing/hosting the shower then this is part of the duties.
Given what we have seen recently with low-party count at showers I would do this. If nothing else thenn to give her a heads up that it will be smaller then you originally thought. Plus, you could scale down the food/venue/seating as needed so it doesn’t look so empty. It can be small and still be fun!
That being said – maybe they just need a reminder?

@suburbian: Yeah, that’s what I was thinking. The venue is pretty small already, a bed and breakfast, so it will help if not everybody comes but I don’t have any yes’ yet! Agh! Thanks!

So many people suck at RSVPs. It’s sad. I would definitely contact them personally to follow up once the deadline arrives. It sucks that people are so rude and you have to do this, but there it is. I won’t say anything about “kids these days” cause then I’d be that cranky old woman (and tbh people my parents’ age are just as bad).
