Is anyone else having this problem??  I recently put all of my invitations in the mail and started to get excited as our RSVPs are being mailed back. But so far I've received two RSVP cards with NO NAMES!!!!! I don't get it because the card says NAMES in bold with a long line underneath.    It so frustrating.  I'm not sure what else to do about this except hold them and wait until the RSVP deadline and call the people who we haven't heard from to find out if it is there RSVP.   Does any one have any other advice?

 

 

I also vaguely remember someone suggesting that I put numbers on the back of each RSVP and make a master list of who is being sent which card, that way if they forget to put their name, you know who its from. I wish I had remembered this advice when I was making my invitations. But maybe it will help someone else here.

That is frustrating. Any chance that they did put their name or address on the return envelope to help solve?

Hopefully someone mentions soon they sent theirs in so you can quiz them on who it was!

A few ideas -- would they possibly have contacted your TA as well to place a deposit you may be able to get info from?

Could you post on Facebook or
The like inquiring? Or..... Could you send a group email to everyone just stating you had some come in with no names -- so a friendly reminder for people to ensure their names are on them and for those who sent them without names to contact you?

If not you may have to wait until your deadline passes and make some calls!

@calgarybride2015, Thanks for that advice. Yep no names, lol. I've even tried to analyze the postal electronic stamps to decipher what states the envelopes were processed in to narrow it down. It's actually quite sad lol. 

 

I was trying to be as formal as possible and send everyone an invitation, even those who have already booked a room so that they can have keep sake, so I can't decipher if its an RSVP Ive already known about or a new one, since some of guest may decide not to book with our TA. I'm afraid I may have made the whole process harder on myself. 

 

I just sent my TA an email asking her to send a quick friendly reminder to people to put their names on the RSVP card, so hopefully  she will be able to do that.  I just don't understand it, who wouldn't write their name? It boggles my mind

Hopefully your TA can advert further stress!! I think sometimes people just don't pay attention! That's all I got lol
I did an online RSVP so you had no choice but to add your name.
Good luck!
