Chet and I have decided that for the guests who RSVP'd yes, and then didn't come, we are going to bill them*.
They will receive an invoice which will be mailed out on 11/30. Recognizing that normal mailing turn around time is 4 days, we will allow 2 weeks between re-billings before we send their information to a collection agency.
Bet you didn't know that RSVP was a contract huh?
