Ignored RSVP
by: Ms P Etiquette

Dear Dixie,

One of my pet peeves! When did we stop replying to invitations? It is extraordinarily ill mannered to ignore a RSVP request. What can you do? Not many options. You can ring up the guests who have not responded and ask them if they are attending the wedding. Or you can plan for those who have sent in their RSVP, turning away those who did not respond if they should arrive. I realize this isn't much of a solution, but it is a rather limited situation.

​Good Luck to you and the bridal party!​
