We sent out our invitations yesterday (Monday) and I got 4 RSVPs today! The only option we gave was for them to RSVP to “[email protected]” by March 25.
Will guests RSVP this way? Did anyone else do online only RSVP?
We have a huge B list of invites. Our church only seats 300 (which is how many we’ve invited)…can I send more invites out this week? Or should I wait until I get some “no” RSVPs back?

We did online, we’ve gotten about 25 of 69. I talked to some family members and they didn’t even catch the whole rsvp online thing. Sine we talked to those family members they went in and RSVPd.
I don’t really know about inviting more people…your wedding sounds very different than ours 🙂

@icetea: When did you send your invites and when is your RSVP deadline?
I’ve also had people tell me on facebook or in person that they are “RSVPing” even though they haven’t received an invite yet. Annoying! Haha

@TogetherThroughLife: Sent 3 weeks ago, RSVP deadline is Friday.
Yeah even my mom was like “I thought I had to just say yes.” LOL

I would wait until you get some No’s.. We didn’t do online rsvp’s but we did have a B list.. Basically, what I did was everytime I got a no, i’d invite that many more to attend.. So say a couple of 2 said no, I would invite a couple of 2 from the B list.. Now, some of them were SUPER late invites (as in our wedding is in less than 3 weeks and they wre just invited yesterday) but we explained to them that our max is 150 and we have huge families and we had to wait to see if they would attend. Most of these are co-workers, distant family friends and completely understood the late invite and are actually excited to attend.

@TogetherThroughLife: With your deadline so soon, I think it would be obvious to guests invited now that they were B-listed unless of course you have a separate set of invitations standing by with a later RSVP date and none of these guests are friends with and therefore likely to talk to guests on the A-list.

@Brooklyn55: That makes sense! That’s what I plan on doing. When we get a no, we’ll invite the same number. Should work out. I really hope we don’t offend anyone. We are inviting many school friends, but then other school friends are on the B list. Same with church friends. I don’t want these people to think that we think any less of them! It’s all about space!
@mrsSonthebeach: We would put a different date on the later invitations. I’m more worried about them talking with A list guests. :/
