VENT! about bridal shower RSVP's

I was wondering if any of you other girls have run into this problem or something like it.
My bridal shower is March 31. One of my bridesmaids is throwing it for me and has pretty much done all the work herself. Considering I have 7 bridesmaids, I was surprised at that even though she's asked for help from them all.
Anyway, the RSVP date on the invite says March 16. So I text her last night and asked if anybody has RSVP'd for the shower. She replied back and said not a single person has RSVP'd. I was completely shocked!! I KNOW there are people coming and I have a good idea of who is coming. But I mean seriously! Not a single girl invited has RSVP'd?!
I cant believe the etiquette of people these days. They were invited to a shower which means they are special to me and me and my BM took the time to send them an invite. And they cant even send a text or email to her and say simply 'no i cant make it' or 'yes I'll be there'!!?
So then I had to go on a texting spree and get a-hold of nearly 30 people to see if they are coming. I just couldn't believe it... I'm so irritated and disappointed at the people I took the time to invite..

I just had to vent about this...

    Wow, that is rude of them to not RSVP at all! It's so frustrating when people can't do a simple thing like call/text & say they are or aren't coming!

    I had this happen. Most people I asked or when I saw they would mention it to me. There were just a few people who actually RSVP'd. I think most people think that is just if you aren't coming and then others just show up because they figure it doesn't matter. Either way I do find it rude and wish people were different but what can you do honestly!

    My mom told me they had to stalk pretty much everyone! People just assumed that they knew they were coming!

    People did the same thing for my shower and bachelorette party.  It was mostly my college friends who didn't RSVP.  I feel like the younger people thing RSVP is regrets only or something.  It's like if you get an invite RSVP ASAP  there is no point in waiting!!!

    I had this probelm w/FI's side.  The invitation clearly said to RSVP to my sister/MOH, and his side called FMIL.  She told me some of them, but she was also still instructing them to call my sister.  Some people are just rude and clueless.

    I know nothing about my shower but I can't believe no one has RSVPed to yours! People can be so weird about stuff like that.

    I don't understand WHY people just don't send RSVPs back. Especially for wedding invites when you have provided them with a stamp and the address!

    I think people just don't understand all that goes into planning these events.  They get busy, set aside the invite, forget about it until they stumble across it again and then are like, "oh yeah, so-and-so's shower is this Saturday".  Then they just show up!  They don't realize that food and drinks have to be purchased, space for everyone to sit has to be arranged, etc.  They are the same about the wedding RSVP's...they don't consider that you have to give a final count to the caterer by a certain time, and they especially don't realize how much it costs us if they decide at the last minute not to come, after saying they would!!  I have always been good about responding to people when being invited to something but, I am even MORE attentive to that now because of my own wedding.  It's sad that people are not more courteous!
