The number-one etiquette question people ask me is why no one will RSVP. As always, thank you for being part of the Manners Mentor family! The lack of it frustrates us, confounds us, and even makes us mad sometimes. The odd thing is that everyone complains about it! Am I missing something?
Your wedding day can be as traditional or as offbeat as you want, but when it comes to your invitations and RSVP cards, you do need to follow a few rules.
