Maybe you are starting to fret now because there’s too many “No” in your RSVP. One no can hurt a little but a list of “no’s”? It will freak anyone! We know what you are going through and we have some great ideas on how you can handle this type of problem in your wedding planning so read along.
First and foremost, before sending out your invites you need to prepare yourself if some of your guests will decline the invitation. It is inevitable. They may decline it because of personal problems or financial. Or they already have booked a weeklong vacation outside the country before you send it out.
2. Always prepare a B-List
B-list is the guests you crossed out when you filtered your first guest list. This can be your college friends (not buddies), you elementary playmates or your former officemates. Just make sure to extend the RSVP date when you send them an invitation.
Let us say that you sent out 150 RSVP’s and you received 40 “no’s”. (That is a lot!) Ask your wedding caterer if they have a minimum and upgrade your menu and cocktails. If you already have a menu in mind but you weren’t able to choose it because it is way too expensive, now you can! You and your guests can enjoy sumptuous food and top of the shelf booze on your wedding day.
