    Didn’t used an online RSVP site, but we ended up getting approximately 80% of cards back in the mail (yes all self addressed, so all they had to do was stick in the letter box), and 15% that rang/text/emailed….and then they were told that they HAD to send back the RSVP card….

    But our motto….no RSVP no bum on seat…

    Worked 🙂

    I voted 30-60% and, YES, we did send self-addressed stamped return envelopes. However, we had to track down at least 40% of our guests. Most figured we would just assume they were coming and others werent coming so they were too lazy to even check off no and mail back the card. Horrible.

    Probably 60% by the deadline and then the remaining half either RSVPed late or we had to track them down.

    We haven’t gotten there yet, and I’m dreading it. We’ll divide the stragglers between my parents, his parents, my friends and his friends and contact them by phone, text, private Facebook message, or e-mail.

    My sister did online RSVPs last year, and all but one couple responded. (2 of 250 invited). The responses were all received 10 days before their stated due date, too.

    I havnt sent my RSVPs yet…but this is something I’m worried about…having to track people down. I wish people wouldn’t be so lazy. Hopefully I won’t have many to track…but I have a feeling about some people. It’s like just check yes or no and throw it in the mail….not hard. Jeeze

    Only around half RSVPed, I was shocked. The people who didn’t respond were mostly family who just assumed we knew they were coming, even though there was a meal selection… (still blows my mind)

    Luckily, because it was family, both moms offered to do the tracking down. It really wasn’t as bad as it sounds. Both sides were tracked down in a day or two.

    I think most people do send pre-stamped self addressed envelopes. I know that I did, yet I’m still waiting on about 40% of my response cards. It is now past my “kindly respond by” date. Hopefully I will still get more responses. It could just be that my family is rude. The people who have yet to respond are: My mother, who I’m sure is coming, my siblings who I am sure are coming, Aunts and Uncles taht I’m not sure about, my Grandfather, one friend, and FI’s one Aunt and Uncle. Even the people I know are coming I still need to know their +1s and entree selection so it is kind of annoying that they haven’t responded yet.
    I didn’t use an online RSVP. I wonder how that would have worked, although many of are older relatives probably wouldn’t be able to figure it out.
