Hey, I know it sucks, but if it is still before the final reply by date. . .you can’t let yourself stress about it.  A lot of people think that the reply by date is like a postmark date. So even after it passes, wait a couple of days to see if anymore trickle in before you start calling people.  Try not to stress about it, I know before I was a bride, I didn’t realize how important it was to send back the reply by cards.  :/

I completely understand, it makes me crazy too! There’s a response card and a stamped envelope, how hard is it to mail back? One of my cousins sent me a text about offering to help with the wedding and I asked if she’d sent her response card and she said “well, no but you know I’m coming right?” Well, no, I don’t know you’re coming because you haven’t sent the damn card back! Gah!

I was very, very surprised by the reply cards that never came in. What a waste of a stamp, right — you’d hope they at least peel it off and use it for something else. I think it happens to all of us. Hopefully a few more will roll in by your date!

I can’t agree more. We couldn’t make it easier & yet unless we go to their house, check off the box & put it in the mail for them, it most likely wont get done. It’s so frustrating but just remember the end result of you having a beautiful wedding is all that matters.

I treat response cards like time bombs – I get them in the mail almost the second I receive one. By the time you get the wedding invitation you’ve already decided if you are going or even booked a hotel, etc. so what’s the problem??

Well … your wedding isn’t until the first week of November! You still have plenty of time. What is your rsvp date?

My wedding is October 24th .. very end of October … and I just sent out our invites yesterday. The reply by date is October 3rd.

oh poop i always feel guilty about this. since both myself and FH work in law enforcement and are technically always on call unless we have dedicated leave, its hard to RSVP definately on anything. Usually if its something we know is coming up we put in paperwork to get the leave but often dont find out until MUCH later whether or not its approved. so i appologize for all the late senders out there – since im a culprit – but its for a good reason! i dont want to RSVP for something and then find out i have to work that day and cant get it off.

I understand where your coming from. I have a feeling my family will completely disregard the response cards but in the guests defense, I have a hard time mailing things back. I live in an apartment so I can’t just stick something in the mailbox and be done. I also have a 1 yr old daughter who fights putting clothes on so it takes FOREVER to leave the house and makes me not even want to go anywhere unless I absolutely have to.

I know it’s frustrating though…just wait awhile before you call. Most people don’t know how inconsiderate they’re being and how they’re messing up the flow.
