My RSVP date just passed on Saturday.

We invited 111 and when all is said and done 101 RSVP’d yes.

We had to track down about 5 guests since we didn’t hear from them but luckily they responded right away. I thought this whole process was going to be a nightmare but we lucked out and had a fairly easy time.

I found that alot of the responses rolled in the first 2 weeks and then stopped alltogether. The last 2 weeks saw an influx as well. We started tracking down people a week before the due date just to be sure. Give it some time, you have a few more weeks to go!

BreezyBride24:  We sent invited out the second week of March, and the deadline is April 12.

Total headcount invited: 248

Yes (to date): 56

No (to date): 24

So right at 70% acceptance, and there are a few other people who we know aren’t coming. Hoping we have at least 24 more declines so that we’re under 200.

BreezyBride24:  We invited around 135 (started with a list of 100) and I’m pretty sure we will have all but maybe 5. My momma told me a long time ago that if you were going to invite, assume they were coming.

BreezyBride24:  I have a feeling all of your declines will come in towards the end of your deadline.  Usually those that RSVP right away are the ones so excited to attend, so I’ll be optimistic here for you!

We just sent ours out last week, so very rough numbers as of right now.

 

  • Total Headcount/Invitations given out: 267
  • RSVPs received:  5%
  • Total RSVP’d YES: 10
  • Total RSVP’d NO: 2
  • RSVP due date April 26th

Hi,

 

I sent out my invites near the end of January with a RSVP deadline of Feb. 15th. We had to track down responses from about 15 people after the deadline and most of those were actually yesses.

Breakdown:

  • Total headcount/invitations set out: 200
  • RSVPS received 100%
  • Total RSVP’d Yes: 190 (95%)
  • Total RSVP’d No: 10 (5%)

I was also counting on more people saying no as our max capacity was suppose to be 186, but we’re able to squeeze in the few extra bodies 🙂
