yup! For the past few days I have only gotten 1 or 2, today I got about 6. I forgot to put a stamp on one response card (I had a feeling I may have missed one) so I had to pay the mailman today to get the response haha

I was just about to gripe about this.  I got about 14 in one week and then they have just been trickling in sloooooowly.  I made my RSVPs very easy to where all you have to do is go to a website…You don’t even have to go to a mailbox or anything!  I understand that some people aren’t very computer literate, but we all have phones.  I am still waiting on the majority of his family to RSVP.  UGH!

I am still waiting for 29 responses. I’m not quite sure what the hold up is. I mean people have known about this since April. I did make a mistake of giving people a full 2 months to RSVP. So my deadline isn’t until October 12th.

Ours have been coming in at a steady trickle although we didn’t get any today (disappointing!). Out of 46 invitations sent, we’ve gotten 19 RSVPs back. A whopping 2 of those are from FI’s side. 90% of our responses have been from my side! Even members of FI’s family who have already booked their hotel rooms and fights have not RSVPed. I know they still have time and all, but I don’t really get it. If I know I’m attending a wedding, I put the card right back in the mail!

We’re down to a trickle at the moment, but it hasn’t actually stopped. I’m hoping it will pick up again as the RSVP date gets closer. Mostly waiting on FI’s family friends and a bunch of our friends from school/etc, which is sort of frustrating b/c those are the two groups that have been hardest to guess before hand who would actually come and are the RSVPs I’ve been looking forward to the most. Only 2 more weeks till the deadline, then the real fun begins…

@Leonard2B:  Most of the ones that haven’t responded are family…and a ton of them are ones that I thought would immediately respond!  I’m not looking forward to having to track down everyone next month so I can ask what the hell they want for dinner!

I am having the same thing happen… the first week, we got at least 8 or 9 a day and now I am down to 1 or 2… I’ve received 59 and am still waiting on 160!!!!!!!! My RSVP date isn’t until October 10, but I am already worried I am going to be making a thousand phone calls.

Can anyone offer any experience on this now that your RSVP date has passed? Did you receive more closer to the date?

Okay what’s up with people RSVPing by email? It isn’t “greener” when I’ve already provided you with the RSVP card and stamped envelope! I guess I should just be appreciative of any RSVP, but I like getting the little cards back damnit! Plus I don’t really trust an emailed “yes” RSVP quite as much. Don’t know why…it just seems less legitimate.

no worries – I’m getting married next month  RSVP date is 9.22

we started off getting a ton the first week.  Then the next three weeks we’d have days where we didn’t get any.

This week they are starting to flood in again.

Expect a bunch of them the week before the deadline.  I guess people just like waiting until the last minute.
