Planning a special occasion is A LOT OF WORK, finding a venue, planing a menu, designing the perfect tablescape etc… But there is always one aspect of  planning a wedding that stresses a mother of the bride far beyond the clean up or seating chart; it’s the RSVP (répondez s’il vous plait) or lack thereof.  As mentioned above there is a lot of work that goes into throwing a party, dinner, event, or wedding…  Lets start with food.  An accurate headcount ensures everyone leaves full and happy…what about drink?  favors? etc…   Why it’s so hard for people to respond with Yes, I am attending or No, I cannot?  The reality is there is not a single reason that it should be that difficult to RSVP in a timely fashion. I t’s not rocket science.  It common sense.  So when you receive that special invitation for any occasion do your guest a favor and reply in a timely fashion!
