@ms. headphone:  To answer your question, both mine and my FI’s family!  lol

 

@FutureMrs86:  I just sent out my invitation but I know I’m going to be tracking people down to RSVP.  I can feel it in my bonesLaughing

Another thing that has been pissing me off are the people from Out of Town that are coming that have already booked their flight and would not book their room under the room block.  I actually will need to add more rooms but I can’t until the block is completely booked.  No matter how much I tell them that it will not charge their card and to just go ahead and book the darn room they still haven’t!

I don’t get the point of setting an rsvp date if you are just going to pissed off before the date. I think it’s unreasonable  to expect to get all of your rsvp back right away no doubt some people are slacking, and others might not know if they are able to make it yet.

It’s annoying when people don’t send their RSVP in. But I got 90% in before my deadline. And I have like 8people pending which is fine because I honestly dont want anymore in. People just slack

I got a little ticked off myself.  I mean, c’mon, it’s a self-addressed stamped envelope, if you know you are going, why the heck don’t people just send it out!?!?

The only thing that’s annoying me is the people who live like 5 minutes away and see Fiance all the time.  Even if you can’t make it to the mailbox, hand it to him when you see him!   I have told Fiance that we will make  one phone call after the deadline and give them one more chance, but if I don’t get those cards back, his family is not getting fed.  It’s just such passive-aggressive behavior on their part, I’m not tolerating it. 

ETA:  Also, Fiance went back to work yesterday (he works in a school) and some of his co-workers were like “Oh, we’re just trying to figure out what meal we want”.  Really? There’s 3 choices, it’s not rocket science!  Pick a freakin’ meal and move on!!  LOL!

I’m the same way- I have months and months planned out, I’ve always been that way, it is so frustrating when others have known about the date of the wedding since January and still “aren’t sure”. or when they assume that you knew they’d come, and that we “don’t really NEED to know the entree choice”. grrrrr

a few days after our deadline we were waiting for like 100 people to respond still! The numbers are slowly going down but come on! The last thing I want to be doing is nagging Fiance to chase down his friends the week before we leave for the wedding. And we made it even easier on people by giving TWO options to rsvp….by mail or online. Its free to rsvp online and you don’t even need to leave the house!

@gonatgo:  I think there are just some people where you could hand-deliver the invitation, hand them and pen and stand over them until they respond…..and they would STILL make you wait!   People are just weird like that.

When I send out my invites I KNOW I’m going to be annoyed when people take too long to RSVP… BUT then I think back to my younger days and recall that I was pretty terrible with RSVPing myself. I was soooo ignorant about wedding ettiquette it’s laughable! 

When it comes to my own expectations I think I’ll have a double standard: anyone who has planned a wedding before should know better than to wait until the last minute to RSVP. Anyone who has never planned a wedding may plead ignorance 😉

Absolutely insane, if I got asked to be a guest at a wedding I’ll RSVP as quickly as I could… The end so simple, arrange for baby sitter, doesn’t take long, going on a holiday say no, not sure if one will be in hospital nothing wrong with letting bride know… I have 55/70 so far and know I’ll be chasing down the other 15 once the RSVP has surpassed meanwhile I’ll be pulling My hair out waiting.  wish I made RSVP date sooner for my own sanity. I’m trying to look at from both sides…
