I’m getting nervous that too many or too little people will actually RSVP for my wedding. I just want to get an idea of what other Latina brides have to share about this. If anyone can share their experience with this, I’d really appreciate it.

I haven’t gotten any RSVP’s yet but I have gotten complaints that I’m asking for an RSVP! I couldn’t believe that! I’m not even asking for them to mail anything back to us, just to call us to confirm if they’re going or not! I know that’s not “normal” for us but I wanted to have a way of keeping track of who’s showing up or not and it seems like it’s so not going to work. I’m very upset and second guessing myself for doing that. 🙁 i thought we would have too many people at our wedding and now I think we’re going to have too few, what a disaster!!!

I had to send my mom chasing after people to RSVP and call a bunch of them the day of the deadline and still allow for like 6 “oops” exceptions. I only got about 5 “no’s” and one of my family members called to say “Hey you forgot to invite my mom” (I hadn’t meant to) at which point I had to say “oh yeah sorry” but that was the only incident.

What’s an RSVP? lol, sorry. I’m marrying into a HUGE Mexican family. Our RSVP date is in a few days and I haven’t received ONE SINGLE RSVP from his side. My futura suegra even told me “Que es eso?” Hahaha. I don’t expect to receive any from his family. But I do expect to be calling them all next week 🙁

My fiance is caucasian and still haven’t planned all the details because he keeps saying “lets wait to see how many RSVPs we get.” He doesn’t understand this is not traditional in Mexican culture. Heck, I had to explain to my mom and sisters (which my sisters were born and raced in the the US) what a STD was. I dont expect to get many back from my family. I will be on the phone or having my mom chase them down 2 weeks before the wedding. If you’re really counting on numbers to give to your vendors, you might need to get on the phone too.
