Nothing is more irritating and frustrating than attempting to track down extremely late wedding RSVPs. In case you’ve included a self-addressed and pre-stamped envelope, it feels like there’s no reason for guests not to send back their answers in an opportune way. Additionally, so many parts of the wedding, which include seating arrangements and the costs of last installments, are dictated by your last visitor number.  Whereas it’s incredibly frustrating, there are several common reasons why your guests aren’t dropping their reaction cards within the mail. Here, we break down why your guests aren’t letting you know if they can make it to the huge day or not, and what to do about it.

No RSVP for wedding

Reasons for why, No RSVP for wedding.

  1. You Did Not Offer A Plus-One

Guests may be anxious about sending back an RSVP if they have to go to the occasion alone. If you’ve got a companion who may not know anybody else at the wedding other than you, consider including a plus-one so that they can enjoy their time at your wedding and not feel like an outcast.

No plus one

  1. They Are Waiting to See whether they can make it.

Some guests, particularly those from out-of-town, are likely hoping to secure reasonable transportation before letting you know whether or not they can make it to the wedding. Whereas it may not fit your timeline of when you would like to hear from them, they will eventually let you know if they can or can’t come. In case they do not answer by the RSVP by date, follow up with a speedy phone call.

  1. They Forgot

More regularly than we think, your guests forget to send a card back. In case the RSVP by date has passed, it’s not inconsiderate to bump somebody to see whether or not they are coming to the wedding or not. Just send out an e-mail or a quick and pleasant text inquiring about their status. On the off chance that you still get no reaction, expect that their reply is no.

  1. The RSVP Card Was Confusing

Asking guests to RSVP on your wedding site can be confusing, particularly for guests who are not as clued up with this sort of innovation technology. Other common causes for confusion? They respond by date. Make it exceptionally clear when you’d like replies back by—”Please let us know if you’ll be able to join us by April 1″ or “Kindly answer by January 15″—so there’s no mystery. It’s very courteous and pleasant to incorporate an envelope with postage, as well.
