As the bride and groom planning a wedding can be stressful. Getting everything checked off the list in a timely manner is essential to making sure your wedding vision comes together. Statistically, one of the most stressful events in wedding planning centers around the guest list. A great deal of time, effort and thought goes into who you will share your special day with.
What if a dear friend/family member or several dear friends miss the RSVP deadline? We all get busy at times, forget to meet deadlines or simply misplace things altogether. This is the time when a close family friend or a well-organized aunt willing to help comes into the picture. Following the deadline, the close friend or sweet aunt make a list of the individuals that missed replying and have that family member or friend contact them via email or phone. This way that person is there to share in the joy of your big day and it takes the stress off you to have to add one more thing to your list.
What if you are the friend that forget to RSVP? Immediately, contact the bride or the groom! Allow them to know why you did not reply and figure out what can be done to count you in for the reception. Sometimes it is a quick fix, other times it may not be. Whatever the case may be, it was important to the bride and groom to invite you to attend and it should be equally as important to you to make every effort to notify them that you wish to do so if that is your intentions.
