    So I know I'm not alone here...
    Today was the final day for my guests to RSVP. Wedding in 22 days (holy cannoli!) and I just wanted to say that at first I was pissed... pissed that I've only gotten FIVE RSVP cards back out of the 52 confirmed and booked, but now I just find it hilarious cause I remember when my girlf got married last year she said, NOBODY EVER RETURNS THEM! LOL.
    I can so relate.
    And we still anticipate a couple more people coming so yeah, I just wanted to talk about it somewhere... about how nobody ever RSVPs. :)

      People think they can just keep it in their own minds about whether or not they are attending. I mean it's only one of the biggest days of your life? OMG what are these people thinking? Very annoying how people expect you to be some sort of mind reader! Good luck! :)

        I feel your pain. My deadline is Sunday and I had my FI's grandmother call me and RSVP for her FFIL his wife FBIL and his gf. I got one email RSVP and another phone call from my MOH telling me she and her parents have booked. That is it from the 75 invites I sent!

          this is sooo true!!

          I have to admit, that I was once one of those people that didn't RSVP. I thought "hey i already told them I was going, why send the thing back?" However, now being a bride and not getting all of our RSVPs back, I will never, ever again, not RSVP!

            I bet this will happen to me as well since I am a delayed responder... ugh! That is why I asked my travel agent to keep me posted when people book bc I am sure that is how we will find out they are coming.

                Out of almost 100 invitations, I received 27 RSVP cards. I was really looking forward to doing scrapbook page with all the RSVPs, but oh well.

                  Nobody ended up booking with my TA because she was so expensive and she ended up not being able to help the Canadians even though she told me she could. SO if I want a count I guess I will be calling people Monday if I don't hear from them by Sunday. Most of FI's friends have said they are coming but haven't booked or RSVPed so who knows! BLAH!

                    I juist really wonder if I should send out RSVP cards after all! That stinks that you put so much effort into stuff and people disregard. We do have a website and several peopler RSVPd there, so I wonder if I need to send those cards bc they may think "we already RSVPd". grrrr. what to do? I feel your frustration though!
