it drove me bonkers!!! i think the main reaosn why is that i'm personally so organized and really adhere to deadline and things of that nature, so when other people don't, I just get enraged because I know it's not that difficult!

Do people really not know if they're going to be attending a DW a month beforehand?!! Haha, my RSVP deadline will be SEPTEMBER and my wedding isn't until next May! I guess I'm "lucky" in that Tammy informed me that Dreams booked up for this May by last October already, so if people don't RSVP and book ahead of time they won't be going no matter what!

Girls, this seems to be a universal problem. I was so fricking pissed at my husband's family because they did the exact same thing you are describing. Just do what you need to do to feel comfortable & let go. You can't force people to RSVP (this is what I learned anyway).

I think Christa and I used to b%*$ about this ALL the time!

 

The kicker was the friends that had JUST gotten married, so they had JUST been through the same crap, and would tell me that they've been "too busy" to RSVP. Baffled me!

 

Honestly, I think almost everybody goes through this RSVP crap. My advice is to just count the people that have said Yes FOR SURE, and don't waste your $$ on the other slackers. I'm sure adding people later won't be as big of a deal as the vendors are making you think.

 

Good luck, and relax... the wedding is so much fun regardless of all the pre-wedding stress smile29.gif

Uggh this is one of my worst pet peeves. I hate people who don't take the time to do a simple task that will take literally 5 seconds to do. I don't know how much easier you could make it for them Jessica. People are just so rude. The first thing I do when I get a wedding invitation is check my calender, call my FI and see if we can attend. Then I immediately check the RVSP card and fill it out and mail it the next time I go the mailbox. It takes two seconds. I was invited to a DW in Vegas and I couldn't go b/c of my job. So I sent the RSVP card with a letter wishing my friend the best of luck and apologizing b/c I couldn't make it, and I bought a gift off their registry and sent it to them soon after. They were so grateful for the quick RSVP. There is no excuse for being lazy and rude when someone has been gracious enough to invite you to an event.

Hi Glenda! Where's your pichuh.gif

 

Anyway, you know the worst... was when I'd go over to people's houses and they would hand me my RSVP, with unused stamp and all. It's like, gee, thanks!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
