Shkragoldfish:  No, it’s not a destination wedding. I think we were pretty early with the invitations, but we had lots of relatives asking for them and our parents started to get anxious and pushed us to get them out sooner, lol. Thanks for the tip re RSVPs. My main concerns are a) my university friends who are just generally awful at responding to messages and b) certain family members who are delaying responding due to some family dynamics – so we’ll see how it goes!

  • Wedding: July 2014

Wedding date: July 12

When were invites sent: March 5-20th (Fi was a little slow mailing his out)

RSVP date: April 15th, but it wasn’t particular…we are still getting RSVP’s and just starting to contact people.

# Invited: Approx 150 (invites were sent knowing some wouldn’t attend)

# Goal: Mine 80, FI’s 150

# Accepted: 92 so far

# Declines: 14 but there are another 15 or 20 who haven’t RSVP’ed no yet…trying to get FI to check into this is like pulling teeth.

# Not responded: probably close to 35 or so

Biggest fear…at this point it isn’t having enough plates. :S bought 100 palm leaf plates. Wedding party has glass…but we can only have another 18 people rsvp yes or I am out of luck and need to place another order.
