It's NOT OK to RSVP via facebook!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I'm a FB addict and I even think that is a little crass.

 

I definately would never RSVP in FB unless the invite was sent that way, then obviously that makes sense (I'm talking showers, not weddings! OMG could you imagine an FB wedding invite?! LMAO)

 

When Chris and I move we've already decided we aren't having a home phone, we are never home anyway, so it just doesn't make sense. Plus if people do call the house we never answer it anyway! HA! Voice mail baby, that's where it's at!

 

 

I remember the days before call display when I was a kid, no one ever answered the phone at dinner, it was not allowed!!

Holy crap, Maura. That is just completely unacceptable. rant.gif

 

I was really peeved when I found out that one of my good friends had gotten engaged because I saw her change in status on FB. pokestick.gif

 

People suck. Technology sucks.

 

Funny thing is that we're all ranting about how we never check FB or email or Myspace and.... it's BECAUSE WE'RE ALL ON BDW!!! smile120.gif Hee hee!

 

OH and another thing that got me that you said was that you've submitted some of the RSVPs yourself. Isn't that depressing? I've done the same to my ONLINE RSVPs. How sad is that? People can't even click a %&*$&'n button!

 

Blah. Sometimes I think that we are all a little S&M.gif planning weddings... KWIM?

I did get some rsvps via myspace, in part because it was some of Chris' family who I don't really chat with on the phone. It's a pretty tricky thing but I agree that many things warrant a phone call.
Absolutely agree with Stephanie here.

That is why we don't even have a cell phone!

Seriously though WTF? People don't get it that it takes time to do all of this work and to do something like that is SO RUDE! I can only hope that these people have kids and when they decide to get married that people do the same thing to them so they know what it feels like!

there's definitely a time and a place for FB but RSVPing for a wedding, shower or other formal event is NOT one of them!!!

 

Here's a fun one... a friend of a friend sent their wedding invites out through FB as a FB event!!! Can you believe that?!? Mind you, their wedding was held in the back 40 with a motorhome as the "bathroom" and storage space for the beer... I think the bride and groom slept in it too on their wedding night...

 

good times, lol!

I am so anti-technology because I hate how lazy it has made people.

 

What amazes me about RSVPs is that I always respond before the deadline. I'm not just expecting people to do this for my wedding, I always expect this. I respond on time for their precious events, so they should do the same for mine.

 

I haven't even gotten to this stage yet, but I'm already pumped up about it.

I can't agree more. I can't stand when people don't have the decency to RSVP!

 

This goes for anything,

 

dinner parties,

cocktail parties,

showers,

weddings,

business meetings

 

How is one to plan, if one does not know how many will be in attendancehuh.gifhuh.gifhuh.gifhuh.gif??
