last minute RSVPs
Is anyone dealing with late RSVPs? Its sooo frustrating. I mean we did plan our wedding really rushed, but we gave everyone 3 months notice with the date and the invitations went out shortly thereafter so that people could know if they could come or not by the time they got the invitations.
Our RSVP date was this past weekend (July 10/11) because the wedding is August 8th. We actually gave a buffer of a week because I knew we would have to hunt people down.
People waited until last minute to respond. Some people said maybe...SERIOUSLY? How do you say "maybe" to a wedding???? Either you're free or you're not free. My family's side finally finished responding (even them some of them we had to hunt down, like my own cousins, wtf)...FI's side still has like 6 families pending. Some are like "oh we can't come, we'll be traveling so maybe we'll send our son instead"...MAYBE??? And sending someone instead?? Another family is in Cali (we live in NJ) and still have not purchased their tickets but they won't say NO...they keep telling FI's mom "oh we haven't decided yet, we're going to try to come"....
Its beyond frustrating!
