ITs things like this that make me want to write my return cards as a math equation. We have reserved “equal or lesser value symbol” # seats in your honor. That way when they still bring 5 rather than 3 I can state we only reserved 3 and the card stated that. Remember sharing is caring and your lap is probably softer than the folding chairs anyway :D.

I wonder if it was a malicious joke. Or they were just too stupid to fill it out correctly.

You know most people would be so confused by the equal or lesser sign hahah.

Ugh. We numbered ours, so at least it wasn’t AS bad, but I had a few come back with no name (seriously?? Yes).

And one of DH’s cousins, who are much older and have adult children of their own, decided that not only were they coming, but all three said adult children were also coming. Evidently it would’ve caused world war 3 to tell them they couldn’t come, so they all came, oh, and one son’s girlfriend, just for giggles.  W. T. F.

I had to laugh at this – because we got one for our wedding like it as well.

Invited two people by name, and a little note on the RSVP card said “three will be attending” and didn’t even tell us who the third was! (They are a childless couple.)

We had another family member make a phone call and get the details – and in the end, it worked out okay. But there was an explicit agreement that if we were over number, the third person would not be allowed at the reception. We were pretty upfront about it – as it was not only a money issue, but moreso a space one.

I still think it was very rude, though. And had the exact reaction you did (I think I even used the words “You’ve got to be shitting me”, too.)

@s2bmrscook:  So it is ok for you to make a mistake (31st September) but not ok for anyone else (failing to write their names in)?

I think you need to relax. After your RSVP date closes you work out who you are missing RSVP’s from and then call everyone that didn’t RSVP and ask them if it is their card. A little annoying sure but it is not the end of the world.
