Our RSVP deadline was today...

Our wedding is on October 12th, 30 days away, and we gave everyone 8 weeks to respond...

We have 64 people out of 241 that have yet to respond (That's over a quarter of the guests)...

7 of those missing are from people in the bridal party...

SERIOUSLY?!?

    Honestly, you sent out your invites really early. In those 8 weeks they had to respond, they probably forgot and/or lost their rsvp card.

    I know that that is super annoying to have to contact and check up with that many missing RSVPs though. Definitely enlist some help (Mom for your family? MIL for FH's family?) for contacting people. Good luck Smiley smile

    Stacey: I. Love. You. LOL That ecard is freakin' awesome!!! Smiley laugh

    I seriously might post that to Facebook in 5...4...3...2...1...

    I HATE that response!!! Especially because we gave the option for their dinner! So we NEED their RSVP to know what they're ordering...and more importantly, if they're coming at all!! Smiley tongue

    We put "RSVP strictly enforced" on the bottom of our RSVP cards so when I make my ONE round of calls 2 weeks out from the deadline and people donʻt say anything, I wonʻt feel guilty at all. Too bad, so sad.

    I can't imagine how frustrating that must be, waiting on responses is one thing I am not looking forward too when that time comes for us. I hope you hear from them soon

    Mrs. O: "Super annoying" is the tip of the iceberg...LOL

    Dana: Here I thought we were inviting adults that wouldn't need such a reminder!!! Silly me!!! Smiley tongue It's crazy that even needs to be said!

    Stacey: You're awesome! Smiley laugh

    2015Bride: It's terrible! We have received them steadily, at least one a day, since we sent them out, but it's awful when the deadline day creeps up and you're like, "oh, they must all be busy....well, they had to have put it in the mail by now........Seriously?? We haven't received it yet???......THEY WERE DUE TODAY!!! WHY IS THAT SO DIFFICULT?!?!" Smiley tongue

    I love these! I'm going to have to save them all and send them to my peeps when they don't RSVP. I'm doing them online, so I anticipate having to contact quite a few...

    These cards are awesome. I am really worried about responses and I still have almost a month and a half. People just don't realize how inconsiderate it is. Hopefully you will get many more very quickly.

    We were pretty much at the same ratio upon RSVP date. Called and texted everyone. Figured it out.

    I had the same problem. I never got back quite a few of them. I've contacted people and not heard back.

    No one from FH's family sent theirs back. Everyone claims to have lost it. A handful of people RSVP'd for extra people when they weren't given a plus 1.

    Several of FH's friends lost theirs. ugh

    And several of my friends mentioned they probably couldn't come - they didn't send back their RSVP and when I asked them just to double check that they couldn't make it, they never answered me. And none of them have spoken to me since.

    So, that makes me feel super awesome.

    JAC: We've had NINE people added that were not invited...I never thought that we would get that many additions. We only granted "plus-ones" to people who are, engaged, living together, married, or have been together for a long time. Apparently, people are going to add whomever they want, whenever they want, regardless of how much money it costs. The only reason we haven't rejected their additions is due to the declines we've received, that equal the amount of additions...Ugh!!! Smiley tongue

    And if anyone says that they lost their invitation, they're getting punched directly in the junk. Smiley tongue
