    "RSVP with regrets only by _______"
    "RSVP for regrets only by _______"

    Or some other way of saying it??

    Thanks!

  • is there a theme? Can you tie it into that?
    We received an invite for a dinosaur party and it said "rsvp if you're exstinct"

    and for the "cars" party...it said "flat tires only"
Thank you Susan!

  • Unless your friends and family care a whole lot more than ours it won't matter what you put.

    Actually it's not just friends and family it's everyone. Out of about 27 invitations to Brooke's birthday party I had 3 RSVP's. Guess how many people showed up?

    I think at last count I had over 20 kids. 2 or 3 families showed up with 2 siblings plus both parents and all of them ate etc without ever calling.

    One parent called literally 3 minutes before showing up to ask which house was ours.
     
    And she had 3 kids with her.

    It's not that I care but how do you plan on food for that?
Thank you savannah33!

    That's what I'll do! Thanks!

    I hear ya about the LACK of people RSVPing these days! It DOES make it very hard to plan!! Usually, if I don't hear from someone, I call or e-mail them a few days before so I don't Over or Under do it!!
