How to get people to RSVP
Posted 23 June 2009 - 12:12 PM
Even the email did not work.
I just assumed no RSVP = No. Well, turned out it was not always the case even if it was in majority true !
Had I known, I would actually have mentioned it in my email, so that everybody is clear on this...

The people that don't respond but SAY (either verbally or maybe through some other means) that they are coming will be the ones who don't come. lol I think that they don't send it back in writing so that it's less "formal" and when they don't end up going they get off on a technicality mentally or something. hahaha

I find the problem is that people think that it's not like a traditional wedding and that they don't have to RSVP. I totally agree with Billysbride too! At the beginning I had TONS of people that were coming to the wedding....they gave me a "verbal" RSVP before the invites came out. Out of those people, one couple is actually booked to join us. Oh well, some people just don't get it! I've just decided not to sweat the small stuff anymore...no RSVP? No gifts for you!

Although once people booked, they either called me or emailed me, since they were excited about going.
Then I had a few people who actually did RSVP and then for one reason or the other decided they couldn't go. After that happened once, I took everyone off the "YES" list if they hadn't booked. That way I wouldn't be disappointed again.

I used a wedding website for RSVP and that isn't even working...bottom line people don't get it!!!! So frustrating!!!

We tired three ways to get people to RSVP and most of them never ever did, and we made it clear if you weren't coming you still needed to RSVP. It is very frustrating!
