Imagine when you have to RSVP and your guests just don’t answer! Yeap that may cause another headache! So this article was made focusing on the guest! Let the bride and groom enjoy more this process! ;)

Guest: Here are 5 things you should know!

RSVP:

It is very important that if you are invited to a wedding, please RSVP by the specified date. This will help the wedding coordinator to know exactly how many guests will assist to the wedding. This is very important to calculate and modify the contracts before the wedding day. Those numbers are used for the wedding caterer and drinks calculation; they are also used for the wedding venue sitting arrangement. The number of people who RSVP will be used for the wedding cake size too, so, being said this… Do your reservation on time to help the bride & groom and the wedding coordinator better organize the wedding.

Number of extra guest allowed

If the invitation says 2, that’s mean that you can bring only a plus one. If you are planning to bring an extra guest than what is specified in the invitation, let the coordinator know before the wedding day. They can let you know if it is possible or not and will adjust the wedding guests number.
