We sent our invites out in the beginning of June, and asked for an rsvp by July 31st. (gave them 2 months) Out of the 100 invites we sent out, we only heard from 42 people, all of whom are coming... No one else rsvp'd. Don't you think you should rsvp whether you are or are not attending- even if it is a destination wedding? This is frustrating. We are just assuming the rest aren't coming, and so we are not planning for them- for dinner, oot bags etc. I will be kind of upset if they decide to book at last minute.. they could at least give us a heads up if they are contemplating coming- right?

Yeah, I am having a similar problem. We have so many people that SAY they are going, but no one has booked yet! I am in the process of ordering postcards from Vista Print now to send out saying "please book by...". I don't really have any advice for you, just that I feel your pain!

I am all for NOT holding peoples hands but I have read where some people will start to call their guests if they have not heard. This goes against the whole RSVP concept but it may help your with the stress. We just had our AHR and only half the people RSVP'd. Those were the people who came.

Wow, that sucks. I bet I'll have a lot of 'no responders' too. If you have email addresses ... I'd send out an email saying that the RSVP date has passed and that you have to finalize things with the resort, so that you are assuming that if they didn't RSVP that they are not coming, so to let you know ASAP if that is not the case.

 

I forgot to RSVP to a friends wedding last year (it was in Ohio) and she called to ask -- and I WAS going ... so you may have some that simply forgot to RSVP, so email is a good option for those you can reach that way (I have several relatives who don't havemail ... so those perhaps you can call ... or have someone call for you).

I REALLY like the idea of asking someone else to call. This will make it less stressful for you. Could you BM or MOH doing it? Or split is and give some to the underworked best man.

I had a few people not RSVP but that came. The only reason I was even prepared from them is that I heard through word of mouth that they were coming. RSVP's are so frustrating. You can't make it any easier for these people to send the card back, but they don't.

Wow I haven't even thought about this yet since I was thinking of only like 30people attending.

 

Hopefully this problem will be minimized for some brides by the new passport laws (not that I will ever hear myself say this again) but the wait time to get a passport will make people actually plan ahead and not book last minute.

 

Most of my guests do not have passports so I'm kind of in the thought process if they go to get one, they must be thinking about going. Now I realize this doesn't mean their butt is actually on the plane though....that's a whole other story.

We sent out 50 invites (approximately 100 people) and I think we got about 80% back. There were a lot of people on the list that we knew wouldn't go or couldn't go. Even before I got the RSVP's back I went through and eliminated some people I knew weren't going. And we see almost everyone that is invited or have seen them in the past few months and most people have mentioned it and told us if they couldn't come, so I don't think we'll have any surprises.

    • I will forever be indebted to the great Dr Black for fixing my broken relationship after my husband left me for his mistress for 6 months. I never believed in spells until my friend introduced me to him. At first, I was skeptical about him because I heard lots about false spell casters but I put doubts behind me for i was desperate to get my husband back and I did according to what he instructed me to do. Now my husband is back just within 48 hours contact him via his email:Blackspelltemple@gmail.com or whatsapp +380501944596
    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
