RSVP VENT CONTINUES!!!! What is wrong with people????

I lost it yesterday.  Totally would win the award hands down for Michigan Bridezilla. So far I have received 24 RSVP's. The deadline is today.  We are expecting 150 guest. I went through my list and began texting or emailing people and asking did they receive the wedding invitation.  Two relatives told me yes, but they had not opened it and asked WHEN WAS THE WEDDING????? I said open up the invitation and TELL ME WHEN IS MY WEDDING!!!  Some told me they lost the rsvp's and passed the word along to another person to tell me.  WHAT??? Well sorry, I didn't get that memo! The most famous one is I forgot but I am coming so put me down for one or two. Oh really????? WELL HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW THAT SINCE YOU DIDN'T SEND BACK THE RSVP!!!!!


I went off and the phone calls started rolling in.  If I had known no one would send them back, I could have saved some stamps and money.  It is in poor taste and rude to ignore a wedding RSVP.  There is a lot involved in planning and we spend money to make sure our guest enjoy a memorable event.  This is not a house party or a backyard bbq. Food is priced per person along with table linens, dishes.  My cake was made for 150 people so if guest don't show up or bring people I didn't know were coming, I am going to have too much cake or not enough cake.  Everyone telling me to calm down. NO YOU CALM DOWN AND GET THAT DAMN RSVP BACK IN THE MAIL OR STAY YOUR ASS AT HOME JUNE 30TH!!!!


So sorry ladies! This is BEYOND FRUSTRATING!!!!

I understand!  You have every right to loose it and you are not being a bridezilla!!!  People need to understand that the RSVP isn't just for funs it to help plan your wedding!  People often amaze me sometimes!

I'm exactly dealing with the same issues right now, so I understand you so well. What it is with people...writing your answer on the RSVP and putting in back in the mail right away when you recieve it isn't that complicated?!?!?! Anyway, we'll get throught it, don't discourage yourself!!!

lorna that one is just mythical. :-))) love that.


tressy, set them on fire. ;-) not literally of course.


tell every single person : i am having the pleasure to be entitled to offer you a ... $ meal at my wedding. since I have to arrange for that treat for you, I have to know NOW if you are coming or not. be aware that if you tell me you are coming and dont show up without being at least half dead, I will NEVER speak to you again and will come and ring your bell each night at 2.00am.


otherwise if you bring people who are not invited, you will be entitled to chose at the entrance of the restaurant/venue to enter or give the invitation to the non invited person but you stay outside.


hoping that I have been crystal clear, yes or no?


I think that is the only way right now?

@pavez19 - Thank you! I wouldn't be so frustrated if I at least had an idea of who is coming. For instance, his family has a lot of college kids.  Are they coming? Are they bringing their girlfriend or boyfriend? This happened when we hosted xmas at our house. I was so overwhelmed! We ran out of food because they brought people along with them that were not family. One of his cousins brought her finance's family with them! My aunt did send in her rsvp but she put 5 attending. What five???? She is not married and she doesn't have any kids!


@lorna247- Lmmbao!!! I love it!!!!

Nicole I freaking LOVE YOU!!! I am at my desk dying!!! 


kplusd - I almost wish I would have put in the invitation, text or email me if you are coming instead of spending all the money on the RSVP's and stamps.

OMG THAT IS RIDICULOUS!!! People are so rude and disrespectful! I can't believe the audacity of people! YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO BE PISSED. Repeat after me- I am not a bridezilla. A bridezilla is a bride who goes off without a good reason... you madam have a great reason! People are disrespecting you and you need numbers to give to vendors! That is not being bridezilla that is doing your job and being responsible... unlike the guests. I am sorry you are having such a hard time with them!


I love that ecard because it is totally true. I would be soo pissed!! My fiance has requested on several occassions to send out official uninvites. It wouldn't be a bad idea lol if it didn't cost so much money.

I agree.. people are sooo rude! I had someone tell my mom today they couldn't make it... I just don't understand wth the big deal is that people can't just send the rsvp back. It barely takes any effort... the nerve >=/

Correct faithk!  All you have to do is pop it in the mail. How hard is that? I had a friend beg me for over a year about how she wants to be involved in every aspect of the wedding and said please send mine out first. She gets her invitation and now all of a sudden she is having surgery the weekend of my wedding.

Omg. I had the same thing happen last week. We invited 200 people, and the day after our RSVP deadline, we still had 75 people who we hadn't heard from. It was soooooo not okay. I called everyone on Saturday, and some said they didn't know. WHAT?! I told them they needed to figure it out by Sunday or I would kindly put them down as no.

Lyfegirl my FI's family driving me crazy! One of his aunts told his mom today he know I'm coming so why do I have to send the rsvp back he know I'm coming. Another one said she didn't send it back because she has questions. It was self explanatory. I am over it.

Oh, Tressy, so sorry to hear you're still going thru this.  Don't let this ruin your beauty and bridal aura... you and your FI are the two most important figures in your wedding so don't let these bumps in the road get in the way of your having a wonderful day.


Hmmm... if the guest count is not yet finalized with the vendor(s) and you still have a few days' buffer, I'd email the non-respondents to say "We're so sorry you could not make it... we'll be sure to send you some pictures of the event (or something like that)".  That may jolt them into their senses.  My philosophy is, if they don't care enough to open the invite or respond to it, maybe they'll come with some negative vibes and you don't want them to attend anyway.

Sorry to know you're going through this! It is very frustrating that guests would ignore a weddign invitation, like you said it's not a backyard party or a bbq...when you make those calls be sure you confirm the number of seats you have reserved for them so that they don't bring extra guests. @Mademoiselle LMAO!!!

Im so not looking forward to this part! I think this is part of the reason I have not sent my invites out yet! I just think its going to drive me crazy to go through this! But you are not a bridezilla honey! You have every reason to be pissed! I would be going off too! And the person who received the invite but hadnt bothered to open it? Really people? OMG....I am dreading this! lol
