I gave Fiance & all 3 sets of parents the list of their non-responders and they were tasked with following-up with them as the deadline approached.  I would think that whoever put these guests on the list would have their phone number or at least e-mail address and be able to contact them for their RSVP. 

I ended up getting 100% responses in with a little nagging, probably because they knew that anyone showing up unexpectedly would not have a seat at a table and would not have dinner served to them.

@persianprincess:  Then you deal. You obvliously know them if you invited them. If you dont have their numbers, find someone that does.

In another post you have going today, I thought you said you were having a tiny, family only wedding…

Your family isn’t RSVPing and nobody has their phone numbers??  Yikes!

Deligate!  If you don’t want to do it yourself have family members or people in your bridal party track them down and get an answer

@persianprincess:  You call them but then again I probably wouldn’t rsvp to someone that thinks I am stupid and hairbrained!

I haven’t read all of the posts to this, but I just have to say….I have RSVP’d to maybe 2 of the 6 or 7 weddings I have been inited to in my life!!!  I feel so dumb for it too.

I feel like such an idiot after planning my own wedding and understanding the importance of it , but before I just had no idea that I was supposed to RSVP!

I also have been to weddings and never bought a gift! EEK! I feel so embarrased, but seriously I was invited to weddings to people I didn’t even know. I just had no clue about the rules.

Now in my older and more mature age, I will alway RSVP to a wedding. But yeah, I was just clueless and had no mother figure to teach me what was appropriate.

@reebee:  +1. Basically I told my mom, his mom and him who was MIA. We all called/texted/facebook stalked our people and now have 100% RSVP.

@persianprincess:  Ahh, that makes a lot more sense.

I agree with everyone else though… Hunt them down.  (and absolutely delegate: “You added them to the guest list, you contact them to see if they’re gonna make it!”)

Good luck!!
