  • Honestly, I've never been to something that required an RSVP. Everything we do - including our wedding - was just a show up and enjoy kinda thing... We always make sure we have enough for everyone we invite.

  • I get very frustrated with this sort of thing. I've known people who thought that they only had to RSVP if the answer is no, people who only thought that they had to RSVP if the answer is yes - like I'm supposed to know which one they mean by it!

    If someone is going to the trouble of hosting something, preparing or supplying refreshments, entertainment, or whatever for you, then how hard is it to take 3 seconds and tell them if you plan to come or not?!

    Add to that, when people change their minds without bothering to let the host / hostess know (I'm not talking about emergencies - these things happen...).

    We had a bbq last summer for a few families. One showed up 2 HOURS after when we said we were eating, and they were offended that everyone had eaten without them. They lived less than 1/4 a mile from us!

  • Yes and I find it extremely rude of them.

  • It's rude. Worse is when they say they're coming and then don't show.

  • I find it rude to not RSVP either way. It is over the top rude to RSVP yes and then not show up or to be so late the party is nearly over. This has happened so many times for my children's birthday parties and they are so disappointed, especially when their friend talks all week about how much fun it will be and then they aren't there. I get that things come up but there should never be not enough time to shoot a text, email or a quick call to send regrets.
