Here’s a thread to keep up with our RSVP counts as they roll in, March bees!
We sent ours out just a week ago, and when I checked the mail today, there were 14 postcards! Yahoo! Granted, we sent out 200+ invitations *breathes into a paper sack* but this is an encouraging start! Ok, it’s like a 5% return rate so far, but I love seeing them come in and watching the view count on our website shoot up. 🙂 *I’m a numbers nerd*
How are you other March bees doing on invites and RSVPs? Not gonna lie, Mr.ND and I were about as excited as Christmas going through this first batch of postcards 🙂

Our wedding isn’t until the very end of March and the RSVP date is March 2nd. So, I’m shooting to get the invites out by January 13th. That still gives about 6 weeks to return the RSVP. I’m finishing up my DIY envelope calligraphy and my mom is helping me “put together” the layers upon layers of our pocketfold invites. Our goal is to have them out by January 13th!!

I still haven’t sent mine out *hangs head in shame* But…we’re addressing them tomorrow. That’s progress right? Lol.
What was your RSVP date? Ours isn’t until Feb. 17.

We’re sending out invites next week with an RSVP date of February 11th. Our venue wants a head count 30 days before (I thought that was a little early) so we have to have our RSVP deadline early.

Our invites have not been sent out yet. We’re going to Florida next week to be able to finish planning some crucial parts of the wedding. Such as the food tasting… We don’t want to send out the invites yet untill we know what food we’re serving for sure. We’re looking to send them out mid to late Janurary.

@amw511s:You can do it! Your invites sound pretty, you’ll have to post a teaser when you guys finish!
@AmeliaBedelia The addressing/stamping was the biggest PITA for us. It’s all golden after that 🙂 Our RSVP deadline was Feb 9th because our venue needs final #s and meal counts two weeks out, and I know we’ll need at least 10 days before that to call a LOT of Mr.ND’s family. >_>

@indibee: Haha, yeah FI’s family will be the SAME way. Addressing sounds less than fun at the moment, but I’ll get over it. Lol.

@redhead46: Wow, 30 days out is a bit early! Do they let you adjust if you find out later that people can’t make it or something came up?
@jude7186: Mmm, food tasting was a fun part! I bet you’ll have a blast. 🙂
@Stassney: Valentine’s day is so cute! I’d hoped to do that, but with school being in session, I couldn’t let myself have only a week to call all of his family, lol. I hope that you get LOTS of RSVPs early!
@AmeliaBedelia: I recommend wine. Totally helps. Tehe.
@Stammie16: We’ll still be here in late Jan…in fact, I’ll probably be fretting by then. LOL.
@MrsStrawberry24: Baaah, seating chart. Why’d you say the ‘S’ word? 😛 Hehehe. No, we made sure to tell people that we saw to get them in SOONER rather than LATER….oooor I’d fiiiiiiind you *wedding crashers, anyone?*
@peacockchris: Oh you’ve got lots of RSVPs already! I agree, though, I’d love to get one big ol’ delivery of 210 postcards. Life would be so eaaasy.
@GreenEyedMoon: Muchas gracias! I think I wanted them crossed off my list because they were sitting on the table staring me in the face. Cake and flowers I don’t have to see everyday….so they’re not done yet. Oops 🙂

- Wedding: March 2012 - Father's Vineyard Church/ A Touch of Class Banquet Center
Mine are going out right after the new year. I wanted to give the hoilday mail traffic time to die down before sending them out. Our RSVP date is the 13th of Feb. I can’t wait to see those little babies come back in!

@indibee: Does it count if I had wine AFTER? We addressed and stamped/stuffed 90% of them today and then did all kinds of other wedding things today. I needed wine and some Bee Time. (Not Me Time, Bee Time! I’m a dork.)
