Giiiiiirl, I can totally relate. I wish I knew…would make my life a whole lot easier. We are still hunting down the stragglers! It really stinks because not having the number holds up other things like favors, programs, escort cards, etc.

Hang in there!

I’m not sure why people don’t.  It already has a stamp on it and everything!  all they have to do is find a mailbox. . .heck, take it to work and put it with the outgoing mail . .. walk to the end of your driveway (or porch) and put it in the box thing that the mailman looks at. . . lol

 

 not that difficult

Did you call them?  I would have called them the day after the deadline.  That’s what I plan to do.

People are lazy that’s why! That being said 21 days past the deadline is FAR too long and I’d be making phone calls. I will be within one or two weeks of mine. People have had plenty of time by now. If they can’t respect a deadline then they can expect follow up imo

I’ll be calling day after my deadline 🙂

People are lazy. that’s the reason. people suck, that too. Some people are stupid. some haven’t received your invite. some people think that if you don’t hear from them you will assume they are not coming. Or, assume that they are coming…. see what happens there?

Anyway, on a side rant. WHY DID YOU RSVP YES TO MY SHOWER AND THEN NOT SHOW UP?!?!?!?! WHAT! THE! FUCK!

 **Ahem… thanks 🙂

Whoah, 3 weeks after your deadline? You’re overdue for a rant/meltdown at this point.  As a person who was raised in an etiquette-adherent household, one day beyond a response deadline would do it for me. Call those lazy folks, ask them if they got the invitation, and if they still don’t get it, simply say “I’m calling to confirm you’re not attending.”

And then… pour a glass of wine.

Get on them! 21 days is ridiculous! I went to a Destination Wedding in Jamaica (soooo beautiful) and we sent our RSVP AND called the sister of the groom to get info and confirm our attendance. Since it was a family wedding we felt more comfortable calling, but at the very least we sent the RSVP! Plus for my brother’s Destination Wedding I made sure to write a cute note on the RSVP so they could keep a couple for scrap booking. It blows my mind how inconsiderate people can be. Call them!

@VegasSukie:  Awww, poor thing! I know how you feel!

I had one guest tell me that they didn’t send theirs because they figured I “just knew” they were coming. Then when I asked what they wanted as the dinner selection said guest replied with “well, you know I only like chicken so I figured I didn’t need to tell you.”

I have to admit that I have not returned RSVP cards in the past and have had to be tracked down.  *Hangs head in shame*  I don’t even have a real excuse – It was ready to go and I just kept forgetting it at home and then I totally forgot about it.  I had NO IDEA what this must be doing to the bride.
