Yeah, I’d be peeved too. Try to understand, though that to them, they are just one little RSVP, but to you there are posibly hundreds to worry about. I am stressed right now about RSVP’s too (30 have not RSVP’d yet and they are due the 25th!) but am trying to remind myself that they just don’t get it….ugh!

Weddings bring out the worst in people… it’s ridiculous. Like they’ve never been invited to anything, and never hosted a party. Grrrrrr

@LovelyLaura:  Try to understand, though that to them, they are just one little RSVP, but to you there are posibly hundreds to worry about. 

I keep having to remind myself of that too.  Some of the people who haven’t responded yet surprise me.  I just have to keep telling myself that everyone has a busy life and RSVPs are just a little ‘to do’ on their massive list. 

It’s frustrating, I totally get it!

I have been guilty of terrible RSVP ettiquette. I just didn’t know! Now that I’m a bride I’m totally horrified.

My Fiance (before we were engaged) was invited to his cousin’s wedding. I was not on the invite and it didn’t say +1. He assumed I was going but I told him I didn’t think I was invited. So he asked his mom, who asked his cousin’s mom, who said I could go. At the time I remember thinking, “Oh, they just didn’t realize he’s in a relationship” but now I’m realizing she probably didn’t intend to let him bring a +1!

My Fiance says we’ve made it okay since we’re getting married, but I still feel guilty. I just had no idea what goes into a wedding and the guest list until I was doing it myself.

I know it’s frustrating, but try to breathe deep and forgive!

@September29:  I am so afraid of someone trying to do this!! We went with if they are living together/planning to move in together (like, already in the process)/engaged or married, then they’re invited. We just have too many people we want to invite to waste a seat on a fling.

@MrsPeachMartini:  haha, well we DID give her a +1 on her invite, because she’s an adult. and thats fine if she wants to find a date… but she should have found one before RSVPing! instead, she’s just assuming that she’ll find someone. siiiigh.

I completed feel you! I especially hate when you invite one person and they just assume they can bring a guest and RSVP for two! The invite was only for you, not your flavor of the month!
