    @Andthepupmakes3:  Our response rate by our RSVP date was a bit better than yours, but we were still super annoyed. My parents had to call quite a few of their friends. But don’t worry, we still got everyone’s RSVPs eventually (after hanging a few people upside down LOL just kidding)!

    We will not employ anybody to stalk down the RSVP because we’re having a small wedding with our family and friends only. However, if my parents were hosting and they had friends on their guestlist who didn’t RSVP, I would consider it’s their responsability to track them down. I don’t know them …

    We had almost all of them in by the deadline.  Our parents called a handful of people total, and we had all of our RSVPs completed within a few days of the deadline.

    @Andthepupmakes3:  All I have to say is, ever since we got married in 2011, I send out my RSVPs right away now! Haha.  Seriously people, do you not know how stressful waiting for a headcount is? geeze. 🙂
