RSVP question for you

    So we got a wedding invitation from a couple from church who we don’t know all that well.

    We’re not able to attend, but the RSVP info says, “To RSVP, text your name and the number in your party to [phone number.]” There’s also no RSVP deadline listed.

    Would you take that as you only need to RSVP if you’re attending?

    I’d respond either way and just put 0 attending in your party.

    yea, i think this might be a misunderstanding as to the meaning of the word RSVP.

    I personally wouldn’t RSVP via text to someone I hardly know, and for that reason wouldn’t want to give my number to.
    If there’s a return address on the envelope (if you still have it, or otherwise know their address), you could write a little letter RSVPing that you will not be able to attend but appriciate the invite and congratulate them on their upcoming nuptials. Or RSVP in person.

    Wow, RSVP by text? Haven’t heard of that one before! What do they expect from people who don’t text? There are still a lot of people who done, esp in the older generations. I’m not big on wedding etiquette, but this bugs me.

    I would just tell them in person next time you see them that you can’t make it and that the RSVP instructions aren’t very clear.

    Yeah- I am not a huge fan of this text for a wedding! I would text though – I am just a stickler though I don’t like it when people don’t respond

    Honestly I probably wouldn’t respond if I didn’t know them well.

    Thanks for the replies!
    And yeah, I wonder if they can really safely assume ALL their guests text. My parents, one sister and brother don’t have texting!
