My irritation, let me show you it.

Ok, so my RSVP date is less than a week away and we have 75 invites still out (they went out Sept 1st). We received none today and I am started to get a tad irritated. I am not about calling people at the last min because I feel that they are adults and do not need babysat. I want to think that I will receive 75 RSVP's in the next week..I am a little more realistic than that. blurg. So my question to you all whose RSVP's are coming up...what up with all this???

    We sent our 7 invites...7! You'd think we'd get them all back but nooooo we've gotten 2. And one of those I had to pick up myself. She didn't even mail it. Like thanks. I could have saved myself the 52 cents lol!

    There are several RSVPs we never got back. Those are the ones we called. We got a firm number by doing that. Otherwise we would have never gotten them all back. People suck like that.

    We haven't sent ours out yet (not getting mailed til Feb) but its all to family (28 invites). We'll never get them back LOL They'll all call or I'll have to call them..You know, the whole attitude of "I'm Nana, I don't have to RSVP she knows I'm coming" etc etc etc. I don't care, you STILL have to RSVP!!!

    Ours was Monday... Monday morning, we had about 70 no responders.  Monday after work, I had 12 more responses, and we've managed to track down most everyone with stragglers coming through the mail.  We're down to 6.  Of course in calling people on Monday, I had two people ask if they were allowed to bring a guest.  FI and I decided to cut the plus ones except for couples who are engaged, married or in an otherwise serious relationship because giving a +1 would have meant an additional 50 or so people.  And, enough of our friends are invited that the few who have casual s/o's should still have enough people to mingle with.  One even asked if it would help if he and his gf split the entree.  WTF? No!

    Gee whiz, I'm scared of the whole waiting for RSYP's thing! My wedding isn't until next July! I have a feeling I'll be making a lot of phone calls. It must be especially annoying knowing that the RSVP card has a stamp on it, but people are just too lazy to lick the envelope and pop it in the mail! I've thought about all kinds of screwed up ways to make people send them back, but it's all just to humor myself while I plan everything!!! I'm sure you can imagine what those thing could be! LOL!!!!! Good luck ladies! I am so excited for everyone who is getting married REALLY soon! I can't wait to see the photos! We'll see what happens in July for me.......
