Our RSVP deadline is 12/01 for the hotel bookings (we blocked the entire hotel -22 rooms).

 

What do you think is the most tactful way to follow up with people are don't RSVP?

 

PS. why do people do that - RUDE!fryingpan.gif

I would just email or call up the people that you haven't heard from and remind them of the dec. 1st deadline. If they don't respond by then, it will be their loss.. not alot you can do about it unfortunately. Hopefully if you remind them then people we make the effort to respond.

we have gotten RSVP's from over 50% of our list so i am not too stressed out about it - i just always think how hard is it to RSVP and wonder why people don't do it and feel funny about having to follow up and ask them!

That stinks, A. However, at least you have had over 50% responded! I had like 14 of almost 300 book mine! only 4 responded they couldn't come. now, don't get me wrong, we only expected like 40-60, but still!

That is soooooo rude...happened to me too. We had postcards made with pics of PV and the date on the front, and a reminder to RSVP on the back. It was worth the $30 for me not to have that conversation with people. As this was our second STD anyone who didn't reply was out for sure.

Today is the final day for my guests to RSVP and I am still waiting on approximately 50% of my guests to respond. I sent out a second reminder a month ago (my travel agent quit and we were assigned to a new one, so I had to send out the new contact information) and a few guests RSVP'd at that point. It's such a pain waiting for guests to book--I am planning on booking a sunset sail dinner cruise (instead of a typical dinner reception) and need to reserve seats ahead of time. I feel your pain.

 

Apparently, the most tactful way (according to wedding etiquette websites) is to get the mothers of the bride/groom to call.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
