I sent 70+ invites out June 15 and have about 30 back?  Wow, didn’t realize we had that many returned already!  Four “no’s”…  I just checked the mail a few minutes ago and we didn’t receive any today – bummer!  I love getting them back in the mail…

41 accepted, 4 declines, waiting to hear from 56. I was surprised to get so many back so quickly. I literally had four accepts two days after mailing them.. they must have sent their response cards back the day they got the invite!

I sent out 143 invitations (289 people) on July 2nd and got my first response on July 5th!  So far I have 12 accepted and 6 decline, but 4 of the 6 are only attending our ceremony because they have other weddings that day.  I LOVE getting the mail now!! I got 3 yesterday and 3 today.

i sent mine out on monday (the 2nd) and i’ve gotten 5 rsvp’s back already! i was surprised (in a good way) to be getting them so soon. we got 4 accepts and 1 decline. we sent about 140 total.

i feel so bad tho! the decline was from some very good friends of my family- a lady and her “daughter.” i haven’t seen them in a long time, but they were always so good to us. i knew they probably wouldn’t come, as the “mom’s” health has been deteriorating in recent years, but i wanted to invite them anyway. when i opened up their rsvp card, there was a note included that said that the daughter had passed away 4 years ago and she thought that they had notified us. now that the daughter has passed, the mom is pretty much a homebody since she can no longer drive. we had no idea! i’m so sad now and i feel awful for not knowing 🙁

I sent mine out the 3rd and haven’t gotten any back yet!  I’m afraid because they’re postcard RSVP’s, but my invitation person didn’t make them in a typical postcard shape, so I’m worried people will get confused.

Sent ours out on July 3rd. Only have received 3 RSVPs back which totals 6 accepts and 0 declines. Still waiting to hear from about 180 more people but a lot of our guests texted me or FI to let us know that they received the invitation so that’s good to know. I’m really excited to check the mail today and see how many we get! 🙂

Sent ours out on June 29th.

Total invited: 115 (55 invitations) 

RSVP Yes: 30

RSVP No: 0 – I’m kind of freaking out about this, I really need just 1 person to say no since we are 1 person over (we could squeeze them in but I would really prefer NOT to do that)

We’re doing online RSVPs so it goes much faster. I know everyone has their invitations, why they’re holding onto them and not RSVPing right away I don’t know. Just get to it already people!

I’m still waiting for my invites to come, they will be mailed as soon as they are addressed.  I made up a spread sheet to keep track of who is coming and who isn’t and who is eating what. 

I bet it’s super exciting getting the RSVPs in your mail box! 🙂

I sent ours out last Thursday, and we have had two replies back  — both local, one just dropped it off at the house. So far we have four yeses and 23 cards still out there. 🙂 I don’t think our invites have hit Southern Ontario yet, or anywhere in BC where we sent ’em.

Both times so far I knew exactly who it was so it wasn’t suspenseful… I’m sure it’ll get more thriling as we get closer!

Oh man, I’m starting to get scared! We invited way more people than we wanted, but thought for sure a lot of out of town people wouldn’t make it.

Sent out 113 invites last Monday.  Total of 250 invited (We only wanted 200!)

So far:

Recieved 16 back.

35 YES

1 NO

Apparently everyone wants to come to our party! : ) Can’t really get mad about that.
