Breaking my back just to know your name

O.G. is signing her life away in these books. I told her to just sign it for god's sakes, she doesn't have to write a damn novel. If you want her to write you a carefully worded paragraph, let me know. I'm sure she'll be more than willing to oblige.

The rsvps are coming back for the pirate party...slowly. That is annoying as I am a super planner and I need to know these things. When I do parties, I like to put the guest's names on the reply cards because:

1. How many times have I heard, "What does M_________ mean?"
2. Sometimes people forget to write in their own names.

*sigh* Whatever people. Let me make it as easy and just DO IT FOR YOU.

RSVPs were the worst part of wedding planning. It's not THAT hard to mark a box and lick an envelope!

I hate it when people don't bother to RSVP...for any event!

Good lord ... this frustrates me SO much! I've given 2 showery events recently and I had to CALL people right before the event to see if they were coming ... and I even included my email address to RSVP to ... how the hell hard is that???

I'm Mexican. No one R.S.V.P's. I can count on my aunts showing up with their neighbor lady friend and that lady's nieces or Rodrigo's mom showing up with a distant cousin and their family. As much as I try, it's ALWAYS like this. 1 gift = about 7 people.

yes, weddings are the worst - they either put the # of people but don't tell who they are or cross out the # and put more. (i filled in the # of people on the rsvp's for my wedding).

Wow. Mexico sounds like fun! I'd hate to be a party planner there, though. Complete chaos!

We had our wedding rsvps printed on vellum and then tied them to a blank cardstock backing with ribbon.

They came back to us in all sorts of combinations:

-cardstock only (with the info copied
from the vellum)
-ribbon and vellum
-ribbon, vellum, cardstock loose
-notebook paper

I guess the vellum was confusing.

Um, what kind of rsvp system do you have for those people who lose the invite completely? Huh?

Re: people forgetting to write in their own names. First, duh, they suck. Secondly, I remember before my parents mailed out my bat mitzvah invites, my mom made us number the back of each reply card. Then, she made a list of the guests' names and their corresponding reply card number. That way, when the idiots didn't put their name on the card, we still knew who it was from. This was in the 80s, before everyone had Excel, which would of course, make the numbering thing much neater.
