People not sending in RSVP's
Posted 10 June 2009 - 09:25 AM
I sent my invites out early on April 1st with a June 1st RSVP date. Our wedding is October 11th. I received a lot of responses back, but am missing a lot. Even 1 bridesmaid and 1 groomsmen haven't returned it. When should I say something and how?

Sometimes people don't realize that it does cost extra to include an RSVP card with your invitation and that it wasn't put in there just to look pretty. You are actually supposed to send it back. Sorry... just had to vent a little!

We used the Evite in stead of the RSVP card. Then we sent invites to only those who RSVP'ed, we have 30 people attending... this has worked well..
So maybe send an Evite. Also Pingg is a really cool site. This will help you contact everyone at teh same time and help you keep track of everyone.
This may not help you...as it might be too late since you have already gotten some RSVP's back, but anyone else having this same issue may be able to benefit.

I sent out an email to all the guests a couple days ago. I have not gotten any RSVPs back but a few guests did call the travel agent.
If people do not respond by August 31st (even though I have a 6/30 RSVP date for head count) I am going to assume they are not coming.
