- Wedding: July 2014
Some of our guests missed the rsvp deadline. It’s going on 2 weeks late and the rsvp was online. After the deadline, I sent out e-reminders through our website, but I can see that a bunch of ppl haven’t opened the email yet. I don’t care if ppl rsvp through the website (as indicated on invites) or if they let me know directly or indirectly by text, email, phonecall to me or my FI or a close relative. If someone says they need more time, I’ll give it to them and see if another later date will work for them to rsvp.
We have 2 types of situations for guests who respond most to email, text, fb pm that we need help w/wording for:
1- ppl who mentioned in passing ages ago that they probably couldn’t come. They didn’t say it all that clearly, but they might think they gave us a “no” rsvp before save the dates went out 11 mos before the wedding. How is something like- Hi ____, I remember a while back you said that you and ___ probably couldn’t make it to the wedding, but we just wanted to double check to see if you’d be able to come or not? It’d be great if you could let me know or rsvp at [site] by [DATE].
2- ppl who’ve never said anything and haven’t rsvpd. what about- Hi ____, Just wanted to see if you think you and ___ will be able to make it to the wedding or not. You can rsvp at [site] or just let me know by [DATE]. We wanted to touch base to make sure the invitation didn’t get lost in the mail or anything.
Are those good? Other suggestions?
