RSVP...is it really THAT hard?!
God, it was bad enough when we had to go through it the first time with the Indian wedding...and now our friend's reception is just over a month away. The RSVP deadline was today because the hotel deadline is Tuesday the 12th ...I knew I was going to have to hunt people down and make sure they responded and booked their hotel but I didn't realize HOW MANY PEOPLE I was going to have to harass. As of right now, we still have 42 people that haven't responded...and a few of them are my first cousins....REALLY? All these people have known about this party for about 4 months now...either you're free or not free!!!!
Oh and the most aggravating part, so earlier this week, we sent a detailed email out to a ton of friends with all the RSVP information and the hotel information because we weren't able to get an extension with the hotel so I really don't want people to miss out on the discounted rate and the shuttle and everything. My emails were straight to the point...DH's emails to his friends were very detailed and formal and I told him that his friends were going to lose interest halfway through his email!...which clearly they did because people were STILL emailing me today like "oh when's the rsvp date again?...how far is this place?...when's the deadline to book our hotel?"
I know some of this should be expected but seriously, why am I taking all this time to give you every detail and basically handing all the information to you if you still aren't reading my emails and paying attention?! And whats even crazier is that most of these people just got married recently and stuff so they remember what they went through but it still doesn't carry over! So frustrating!
At this point, I don't know what to do about the 42 people that still haven't responded. I was going to give them until like Sunday before I start calling, emailing, texting...what do you think?
Sorry for this rant haha. But thanks for "listening"!
