Yeah.. Had a few right away (maybe 30%) and now.. Nothing. I’m guessing we’ll get a whole bunch right on the RSVP date. Or slightly after. No RSVPs from groomsmen, you’d want to assuuuume they’re coming, but you know I’m just not sure!

ETA thanks for making one for the September bees 🙂

We just sent ours out on Saturday and we received 4 yesterday, 3 of which were yesses and 1 was a no. Hoping this 20% estimate works out, we invited so many people!

@kellykellygg:  I feel like a lot of times members of the bridal party figure that you know they are already coming to the wedding and don’t send the rsvps. You’ll probably get a lot  between this week and next week!

My date is Aug 1st too, and I’ve heard from about 40% of people.  It’s looking like we’re going to have to make some phone calls.

@kellykellygg:  I’m missing a ton as well, and my deadline is also August 1st. I’m missing cards from every single member of my immediate family. WOMP! My mom is taking care of her’s and my dad’s, but she had to rush out of town on an emergency a few weeks ago and still isn’t back. I mean, I know everyone in my immediate family is going, but I’d like to get those cards, please!

 

I’m jsut going to be patient. But you better believe that by August 5th (any mail sent on the 1st should get to me by then) I will be making some calls. I’ve got a lot of stuff waiting in the wings (including DIY projects) because my total guest count will be the determining factor in how much money I have to put towards things like:

Flowers/ my bouquet

and

Gifts or favors.

 

If you know whether you will make it or not, please, pleeeeeeeease put me out of my misery…. T_T

My date is 8/1 as well. I have 14 missing (out of 41 total), so not too bad. One is FH’s best friend, and 3 of them I know aren’t coming (they’re in another country and already told me before I even sent invitations). The rest are a bit more questionable, so I’d really like to know.

We just sent our invites out last week and recieved about 20/126 responses so far. Our RSVP deadline isn’t until Aug 23rd though, so we have time before I need to start stressing. I already know plenty of people who are definitely attending, since they have already booked hotel rooms in our block.

I just sent ours out on Monday.  Our deadline is August 30.  I am dreading this process, based on all the previous threads I’ve read.  I just don’t care for rude inconsiderdate people who can’t return a simple card in a timely fashion, especially when it’s all paid for.  Fingers crossed for everyone that you get everyone’s responses!

Our deadline is August 1st too and we’re missing 11 replies out of the 70 invited. So, not too bad I suppose.

My invitations were sent on July 16th and our RSVP date is 9/7. We’ve gotten back 4 no’s (2 couples) and 18 yes’s. My mom is doing it all from across the country, but she’s been sending me updates 🙂

We sent ours out around July 15th. So far, I have had 54 yes’s and only 2 no’s (we were already expecting them to decline). I still have about 75 replys needed back. The Reply date is August 25th so hopefully more keep rolling in. I am afraid some invitations didn’t make it to the recipients as my FMIL didn’t get hers…but I guess we will have to wait and see.

I’m getting some back almost every day. The mailman must know that I’m getting married lol. 

My deadline is August 15 and I think I’ve gotten about 40% of them back so far. At first, I was only getting yesses, but I’m starting to get some declines now. I’m thinking I’ll be getting more declines as we get closer to the deadline, since some people need time to decide.

I’m at about 60%.  So far, there will be people coming from 8 different countries!
