Tackling RSVPs

Now this is something you will 99.8% get frustrated with..why, well for a number of reasons

* People forget 
* People honestly think I’ll get to it and before too long they think they have already done it 
* People can’t be bothered

But don’t let it get to you, the above reasons shouldn’t upset you, your guests have lives too and as much as they probably are looking forward to the wedding it’s not here yet so they aren’t thinking about it. Plus people generally just forget.

Farming this job out
No don’t grow any crops. What you need to do is utilise your bridesmaids (I probably wouldn’t suggest this to a grooms men unless you are total sure they won’t forget 20 minutes after being told) . I would suggest trying to give your bridesmaids contacts details of guests they have met. Even if it was at your next door neighbours party to celebrate her new bathroom 6 years ago. 

Don’t over face your bridesmaid give them 2 weeks and max 14 people it’s either 14 drive bys or phone calls. Or make a day of it, provide lunch and a list they call and you simply await responses. This is one of those jobs that a bride shouldn’t have to do.

Enjoy the run up to your wedding
