Do you RSVP?

I'm having my DD baptized next weekend and am planning on catering chicken. My *ss is kind of chapped because I asked for an RSVP (gave PLENTY of time) and there are several that have not let me know if they're coming or do I plan how much food to provide? And why is it so hard to leave a message or send an email? Isn't that considered rude?

  • Yeah, it has gotten so bad with some people. And they would not like it if they were the ones planning the party. definitely rude.

  • I come from a family where it is considered rude not to RSVP.

  • I know it's not "tradition", but I usually dont expect or give an rsvp unless I'm for sure going.

  • I actually meant, how hard is it for the "guests" to call me and leave a message, or an email response....I don't think I should have to "hunt them down" for an answer....but thanks for your replies....

  • I agree, if an RSVP is requested it is polite to give one either way.

  • I always RSVP but many many many don't! I have had several parties for my kids and literally nobody RSVP'd yet at least a dozen showed up.
    Always plan for more guests than you expect. Better to have more food than not enough.
