June 2011 Weddings

RSVP Deadline

Today is my RSVP deadline.  I got a call with my real dad's RSVP (and two additional guests) and 3 others have RSVP'd via TK website.  Of course, two of those were because of my... ummm.. gentle nudging... on Facebook.  :)

My grandmother is still without power because of the tornadoes so she's willing to start calling those who haven't RSVP'd.  Hey, by all means... :)

Re: RSVP Deadline

  • haha i was thinking about putting something on facebook saying 18 days till rsvps are due but i think im going to wait till friday and give a 2 week countdown :o) i just want them all in so i can start with the seating chart, escort cards, table numbers.

  • I said it all sweet.  I have to place catering and cake order this week and I don't y'all going hungry!  Hahaha.  I did learn that my cousin's wife and their two kids are coming down from New York.  It made my day because he's in Afghanistan right now for his 3rd deployment and I didn't expect them to make the trip.
  • I'm definitely going to have my grandmother help me out with this as well, especially since there is major drama on FI's family, and my grandma can definitely handle people like that better than I can, I don't even care if she gives them a piece of her mind, as long as it's not me doing it lol. 

    I'm hoping we get a lot of RSVPs in before our deadline though! I'm so sick of people telling us that they're coming verbally, that doesn't tell me if you're bringing a date, or said dates name, not to mention how am I supposed to remember that they're coming!

  • My date was yesterday and I'm still missing 43.  FI talked to his grandfather on the phone last night and was asking him about the RSVP card, and his grandfather said he send it a while ago...but we never received it.  I also had another friend from college who mailed his but we never got it.  I wonder if there are others lost in the mail somewhere...

  • about a month out i put an rsvp ticker on the main page of my website lol. now it just says "Have you sent in yours?" XD

    but of course nobody looks at the website so it didn't do anything but make me feel pleasantly evil XD
  • ha I plan on putting out an rsvp deadline on facebook as well once my date shows up! Good for you! I hope the phone calls go smoothly :) That is something I am not looking forward to. I plan on getting everyone involved. My mom, grandma, FMIL and fiance...after all...they did put people on the list therefore they should have to call them!!!!

    Honestly, I don't get why people can't respond by the date. I finish grad school finals on May 10th. My deadline is May 11th. It's probably not in my guests' best interest to be absent on the response card on the 12th. hahahha.

  • I'm still missing some too. My deadline is the 12th, but still! Send it back, people! And the people I'm missing are people I would have thought would send it back right away since they got married recently themselves. It's kind of incredible.
    You will always need something to fix.

  • Our deadline is May 14th. We got about half back so far. I am trying to wait till May 15th to start phone calls. But I am  not very patient so I may start sooner.
  • I would be careful about putting anything on facebook.  What about all those people that weren't invited?  It's sorta opening up the door for a million people to write you and say "where is my invite?" or "I'll come!  Sign me up!"

  • Our deadline is the 11th and I'm missing a bunch. The bulk of them are FI's family and co-workers/friends. Buncha slackers!

    Not looking forward to having to track people down.

    So I had the invite ticker here but lost count and didn't feel like fixing it.

    This.  I can't imagine posting much about the wedding in general on FB.  I have quite a few "friends" that I am not inviting to the wedding and I don't want to highlight that fact.
  • I put it on the private event page we have.  I put the website address in my status once like a dodo.  Never again.
  • I don't expect most of them back! I've come to the realization and I'm ok with it. I take verbal are you coming daily I feel like and write it down or put it on my excel sheet right then and there. I don't expect to say anything to people until the deadline at least. I guess I've become apathetic about the wedding. I just want it here and be done with it. Whatever I need to do to find out if people are coming I will. All I need is the final number.
  • I totally agree w/pp..I think its funny that people who we invited have weddings coming up and haven't sent theres back...makes me wanna do the same thing back..ugh whats so hard to send one back..you know by now if you are coming or not. I told FMIL since half the people who haven't RSVP yet were people she HAD to invite she can call them to ask....She says put them dwn I know they are coming..no I'm not going to accept that..ugh so aggravating

  • I agree with PP about posting it on facebook. I'm glad you made a private event page because I hope nobody would put it in their status. Someone I know did this and I personally think it's tacky because if you aren't invited it's a little in my face and makes me want to de-friend the person..
  • I agree with joyfulbride. I had a few acquaintences on facebook that would constantly put up RSVP/hotel reminders, and then countdowns starting at day 30. I definitely did not appreciate seeing that constantly!
