@CarolinaCola:  we got quite a few the day before and a couple days after. Unfortunately we also had to follow up with quite a few people who didn’t reply at all :-/ I definitely felt like busting some heads at that point!

Same here! I gave a deadline of March 1st, but more than half are still unaccounted for and the venue needs final count March 6th.. I have a feeling I’m gonna be tracking down some peeps.. uggh!

@CarolinaCola:  We had tons come in right before, but still were missing 24 after the deadline. I just copied and pasted an email to all those to get their answers.

I had 90% of my RSVPs but also set the response date a week or two ahead of schedule

@CarolinaCola:  I have nothing but bad news for you… Our RSVP was 23rd Jan, we’ve only had maybe 1/3 of people rsvp before or on the rsvp date.. Im still chasing up the last 5 or so now.. Good luck to you!

Sadly… No. I found that if people hadnt responded the week of, they weren’t going to.

I sent out an email to the delinquents with this attached. Made me laugh about an otherwise annoying situation.
