The bride-to-be begs for advice after struggling to get her own family to respond to her wedding on time – so what would you do?
- A bride-to-be has a hard time getting her own family to RSVP at her wedding
- She has asked her family several times to join her on the greatest day of her life
- But the woman has not heard from her family – so what should she do?
A bride-to-be has shared her struggle to get her own family to RSVP for her wedding after making multiple attempts to contact them.
The Australian woman said she and her groom-to-be have asked family members to celebrate their big day with them on several occasions – but they haven’t heard from them yet.
‘How do I keep chasing family RSVPS … if we’ve chased them and they haven’t responded? What are the next steps? the stressed-out bride wrote in a Facebook group.

Her post received mixed reactions, with some urging her to ‘stop hunting’.
Don’t chase them, just get on with your special day. Never chase someone to spend your money on, ‘one wrote, while another added,’ Don’t chase, if they wanted to be there, your wedding would be a priority, they would have sent it back. ‘
But one person asked what the bride and groom should do as a guest who didn’t RSVP decide to show up on the day.
Another bride-to-be who is also in a similar situation suggested, “I’m thinking of snapping and making business cards that only say” I didn’t respond “in the name on our seat cards.”
However, many suggested that the bride-to-be should issue an ultimatum and demand an immediate response, or their family cannot expect seats at the wedding.
Tell them that if you don’t receive an RSVP or hear from them on a certain date, they won’t have a place and they won’t be able to attend. Be determined. It’s very rude of them, ”one woman said.
‘If they do show up, send them away. Say “I’m sorry, but you didn’t answer. There’s no room for you.” ‘
One of them suggested, ‘If it’s family, they assume you know they’re coming. As frustrating as it may be to follow them up, it’s worth the phone call checking in with them. They probably got caught up in the excitement and did not explicitly communicate that they are coming. ‘
Another woman joked: “Tell them to bring a chair and a sandwich because they haven’t been taken care of or are not coming at all. Not responding to anything but a wedding in particular is the epitome of rudeness and carelessness. ‘
Others shared their own stories after dealing with recipients who did not respond to their wedding invitation.
“ After several reminders, we immediately messaged or called and they said they were coming – but they didn’t even show up in the end, were not at all impressed, ” one said.
