Never have I ever.... forgotten to RSVP to a wedding

Time to fess up! Have you always remembered to RSVP as a guest? Or have one or two slipped your mind until you got a follow-up call from the couple?

    I forgot one time! BUT, in my defense, FH was the best man (it was his brother's wedding), so it was well known we would be there.

    Never! I always make sure that I respond promptly to any event where an RSVP is required.

    The only wedding I was directly invited to rather than my parents + family, didn't request RSVP. I have however twice been to a wedding that my parents did not RSVP to (because my dad is the worst) and it was the most humiliating experience of my life! 1 was super classy and showed us to a table and brought each of us a chicken plate as if we had RSVPed and we heard nothing more about it. 1 we were stopped at the door and told to leave. my dad pretty much begged. they let us in and we didn't eat or anything. they had like a baby sitter room that my sister and I were young enough to go to but it was just so very awkward.

    Planning a wedding now, I get it. it is so stinking expensive and frustrating but there is no way I will be humiliating my family the way we were. Keep in mind my dad's ignorance was the cause. Not my mother who was humiliated or myself or my sister who were made to feel like scum.

    We will not turn away family or treat them badly because they made a mistake. They showed up. Clearly they still want to celebrate our wedding with us. We will welcome them and be happy they were able to come.

    ** wow stepping down off my soap box now sorry for the rant...

    I've never forgotten to RSVP. Usually I try to send it back ASAP because I realize how stressful that is on the bride and groom

    Yep! Mostly because I thought my FH did it, and he didn't so it didn't go out on time. He always tries to blame me but his friends know better, ha! I'm one of those people that get things done right away, the only time I have to wait is if FH can't make up his mind..which is how that specific one ended up being late.

    I have never! But it's only been my responsibility to RSVP myself to 2 weddings, so that's not saying much.

    Guilty, but only once when I was 19 and IN the wedding, so I assumed my bro and SIL wouldn't need me to RSVP. I've realized the error of my ways, especially now that I'm counting every single response card that comes in. People who don't RSVP are the worst.

    I've never RSVP'd. I've only attended my cousin's weddings, so my name was included with my mom's invite. Hopefully my mom RSVPed on time. It wasn't until planning my wedding that my friend invited me to her baby shower. I made sure to RSVP to that on time!

    I've always RSVP'ed as soon as I get the invitation.
