    Oh, and I don't plan on calling people that don't RSVP. I'm just going to assume they're not coming. I don't have that much free time to track people down because they're inconsiderate. It's not my problem. We're all adults here.
    I've been going back and forth on whether or not to contact people who haven't bothered to respond. I do have some friends who I thought would go -- but haven;t booked and we could really use some people to take over some/all of the 5 rooms with people who had to cancel b/c of either money, health or whatever.

      Well, in that case, I would suggest you call those people who have not RSVP'd yet. But it's still sooooooo annoying.

      Brendan and I have had this conversation before. I know I'm the most organized person in our group of friends. In fact, I'm OVERLY organized. And I need to realize that not everyone is like me. I'm the type of person who knows whether or not I'm going to a wedding BEFORE I even get the invitation. So as soon as I get it, I send back the RSVP the next day. That's just the way I am. So it REALLY bothers me when I've given people 4 MONTHS to book their rooms and they haven't. I need to calm down, I feel my face getting all red.

            i had to hand-hold a few people through the process of making travel arrangements. so annoying considering i included step by step info as well. some people are just annoyingly lazy/clueless when it comes to this stuff! sorry you have to deal with it so close to your wedding.

              I totally hear you Jen! I'm so sorry that people SUCK! I leave for Jamaica in 7 days and we have just been informed that a few no shows may "crash" our wedding! Ridiculous! I don't understand people at all... months to plan for something and they leave everything to the last minute!

                I feel like today there are lots of threads that capture the same exact frustrations I had in the 3 months preceding our wedding! Sorry you are dealing with this Jen.

                But, bottom line, people are just not following the program, for whatever reason, and it just sucks huh? Nothing you can do short of hassling the hell out of them morning, noon & night until they book. Better, you just gotta let them be the adults that they are & let 'em figure it out :)

                Stupid people!

                    Not to hijack, but yeah... they haven't booked yet, but supposedly they wanted to 'surprise' us by showing. Who does that? Do you actually expect us to have food and cake and everything for you? Not to mention I won't have OOT bags for them if we find out 2 days before we leave... we aren't sure whether to tell them they just aren't invited anymore or what...

                    Again - sorry to hijack.
