    @LittleSassLotsofClass:  I do, if I’m close to the couple – but only because I really enjoy feedback when I send out mail/cards… but, it’s NOT the norm (even though it might be in the hive)

    I think only one or two people of the 180 save the dates we sent out acknowledge them and I was surprised they did. I never acknowledge them because I don’t see a reason to.

    We had a couple people confirm that they received ours, however, I never confirm receiving them unless I’m telling a very close friend that it’s pretty or something like that.

    I don’t necessarily confirm, but I usually send a text like “love the save the date” or just a comment on how cute it is etc. I guess in a way it lets the sender know I got it.

    We got a flood of pictures of them on people’s refrigerators, but only from people we were close to.

    I usually don’t. Sometimes to close friends I will, letting them know I love the card or whatever, but that’s it. It’s like most people don’t acknowledge thank you cards. I send them out and that’s it. I just assume everyone got them from my bridal shower. Some commented on them, most didn’t.

    We sent out 57, and only had about 10 people confirm that they got it. Im not worried though. As long as they get the invitation itself, im fine.

    Only if it’s very close family or friends. Those are the only people who let me know they got mine too. It was nice to know that they made it through the mail and people got them. Same goes for our invites which we just sent out. My parents, FMIL, FSIL, FBIL, and FFIL all let us know they got their invite and the women passed on their compliments about how beautiful they turned out but that was it. Though obviously for invites we expect to get RSVPs back.

    Let’s see, of the five invitations or Save the Dates on our fridge right now, I think we acknowledged two, maybe three of them. We got a bunch of people telling us, but I think it’s because one college friend posted on my facebook wall “I got @LuluVohn’s save the date” and then everyone in that same group of friends felt the need to comment “me too!”

    I don’t acknowledge them unless it’s a super close friend & then it’s a comment about how cute they are or my excitement.

    We did email STDs.  A few people replied with yays and congratulations, others mentioned in person that they were excited to come, and one said he can’t make it due to another wedding the same day.  Most people did not acknowledge.  For me, personally, I would only say something if it was someone I’m close with to say how excited I am or to compliment the design.
