Why Do People Make Rsvps So Difficult!

Recommended Posts

If anything, this process has made me an intant RSVP'er to anything I am invited to. My wedding is less than four weeks away. People who RSVP'd "yes" haven't booked, reached out to book, or spoken to my fiance or I. People who were in the wedding party, "have no money." People who didn't RSVP, are asking, "how do I book for your wedding?" It can become a nightmare, especially when you are finalizing invoices and prices. I keep telling myself, everything will be fine when I arrive there. But it is certainly a stressor!

It's funny how I found that some people who had weddings ( though not destination) were also bad with RSVP ing ! And some of them had even told me before how annoying it was!

 

I'm in the same boat, there are still some questionable bookings 2 mo out but at least we have more of an idea now

I don't know if I have said this before hehe, but I think at 2 months out you can cut people off and/or tell them a firm deadline.  IE - as of Mar 1st we are unable to accept anymore guests.  At this point I think it is pretty tacky of your guests not to have let you know!

Yes for sure! We've got essentially our final number now . The only two people we are letting slide for one more week (rooms need to be canceled then) are a couple where one has terminal cancer and is playing it by ear. I think I can give them a pass for that...the only legit excuse I've heard and they're still trying to come! Now I'm focused on getting the wedding planner to respond to my emails because we need to hammer out those last details

Oh yeah. All my FIs friends ended up backing out ( one still hasn't even said anything but obviously isn't coming...so rude) at least one of them sent us a check for a decent amount as a wedding present so it will more than cover our cancellation fees! Lol but we will have to shell out some $ for the catamaran because we expected more to go than actually are( everyone is paying a certain amount but we will cover anything over that it we don't have enough people) oh well this wedding has not been cheap at all .
