I Know "RSVP" Is in French, but I'm Pretty Sure Everyone Understands It
Like, even my cousin's wife and my uncle's fiancee' who both speak English as a second language--and the first one ain't French--responded as to whether or not they could come.
I even got an email from my cousin who hasn't spoken to most of my family (myself included) in something like 10 years.*
But my SIL, who went on family vacation well after I mailed the invitations, didn't respond. Not even to my follow-up text. (But hey, no "Sorry you had to bury your grandfather this week" message either, so. . .)
I finally texted my brother to beg him to ask her for a response, but I'm not expecting a timely response there, either. Even though I'm pretty sure they're all on the same family vacation (my bro came back for a day for the funeral).
She's not the only one who hasn't responded.
By the official RSVP date of today, I have the count as follows:
YES = 18 (c0unting myself and the bride)
NO = 10
NO IDEA = 6
Phoning some people tomorrow. Grrrrr.
*No, of course that cousin isn't coming to the shower. Everyone has a family vacation planned for that weekend, I swear. That said, she mentioned coming to the wedding. Extremely grateful that I have nothing to do with the seating chart for the reception.
