    All the brides that have been saying this has happened to them are making me think that when I make my invitations that I will write this is the RSVP deadline and if you decide to book after this date you will not be included in the special activities outside the wedding and won't be getting things like a welcome bag (but in less words lol)
    haha that is what I should tell them! they won't be getting a cool OOT bag! hee hee hee...I can easily change the numbers at the venue and welcome dinner but I may run out of the small things like travel sunscreen...well guess what the late bookers will just be SOL on that
    I totally understand.. Our wedding is a month after yours - we set our RSVP dates early (beginning of March) knowing people wouldn't stick to it that closely.. but now it's almost a month after the date and people are still not giving us definite answers.. I can change my numbers with the resort but I wanted to have that done by now and we are ordering OOT bag stuff and flip-flop favors and that order has to be in this weekend.. so even though, I'll probably be annoyed but give in like you, but I guess they just won't get favors..
    yep...these people that booked today have been totally wishy-washy for the last couple of months...that is it...no favors for them...I already bought everything!

    OMG! wow driving all the way to cabo last minute?! that is insane...have to admit though Tammy, thinking about people booking 4 days before...that totally made me laugh! And Abbie...getting RSVPs back AFTER the wedding?! seriously sometimes people make me wonder!

      LOL wow I hope that this will be the last of them...Im afraid that this might end up happening to me. We have 60 that RSVP but only 17 have booked so far.

      So what things are you going to have to do for these 4 guests?

          I get it, that means you have to add the cost of more people, more favors, more OOT bags, etc, etc. I would totally be freaking out too! Of course glad more people could come but freaking out. People just don't get it.

            i totally feel for you! we have had about 10 people rsvp yes & book after telling us since we decided on a DW about a year ago that they would NOT be coming! we never thought they'd be able to make it, and therefore, totally under-purchased favors, OOT bags & contents, etc. we are SO excited they are all coming (i had been getting pretty down about no one coming for awhile), but what a PITA now with the last minute running around (on top of all the crap i procrastinated on)!

            driving to cabo with a can of tuna ... ... so cool that he made it there any way he could! but still, LMAO!

              My RSVPs are due back on 4/15. I think I'm going to try and call everyone and get commitments from everyone by 5/1 but after reading this thread I doubt that's going to work. I know a lot of people have RSVP'd yes but few have actually booked all of their travel.

                Andi, you're a better person then I am. I told people ahead of time if they aren't booked by a certain date, they can find there own way to the wedding from the ship. I gave my final count to my wedding planner for taxi's a while ago.

                    I think some people wait until the last minute hoping to get a better price on the trip. I think I am just going to buy a few extra items for the OOT bags. I am not going to go over board at all, but just a few extras.

                    Most people don't understand all the planning etc there is to a DW. I know in the beginning when I was planning I was totally unaware of all the planning.

                      I totally get it Andi. I have everyone booked and things are getting prepped for my 30 guests. Now I'm hearing rumblings about another couple possibly coming. I said that's great and all, but my RSVP deadline has long passed. They're more than welcome to come, but I have no idea where they're staying! (We rented out 2 private villas and every room is filled.) They would have to find their own lodging and find ways to get where they need to be on their own. There also would not be any OOT bags for them. It has always bothered me that people ignore RSVP dates (not just for weddings, but pretty much for everything). I'm not putting up with it.
