Whoa. When do you need to know the final #s? Are you going to start calling people? How many invites did you mail total?

@littlemisst08:  Don’t rely on email (some people don’t check often), and text isn’t much better. You (or a trusted helper) needs to phone and speak to someone. If they say, “I don’t know”, say, “Well I’ll have to take that as a no then”.

i feel your pain. we had to track down a few people and we only invited 40 people! wtf. one person finally rsvp’d yes and didn’t bother showing up and 2 others never even bothered rsvp’ing even after we tried contacting them (and they did not show up). needless to say those 3 people are not in our lives anymore. we had to track down an aunt and uncle of DH and they rsvp’d yes and did show up. it’s super annoying especially because it only takes a few minutes to either email or put the rsvp in the mail.

Ugh I hated trying to chase an RSVP and most of them were like oh I’m not sure yet.. Thankfully I don’t have to pay til feb 15th, but they don’t know that!

@littlemisst08:   I’m glad you’re getting more replies coming in. I just think speaking to people is best of all. If text is working, then great!

Wow, when were they due? If you’re 2 weeks out, did you send them late or something?

 

I plan on having my final numbers 3 months before the date!

Oh wow, that is insane!  Glad to hear it is getting better but I would rely on phone calls from both you and your parents/wedding party.
