Most in the first two weeks. Our deadline was yesterday, and we’ve gotten back 57 out of 76 replies- 75%, so we’re going to start bugging people this weekend.

So freaking annoying- there’s a stamp on the envelope people, and it’ll take you 30 seconds to fill out! :)-

@rebwana: Right there wth you! I think it’s SOOOO rude of people not to RSVP. you’re asking them to come to a party and to eat, drink, and have fun. Not like you’re asking them to help you move or something. You have enough to plan, than chase people around begging them to come to your wedding. If I could, I would automatically count the non-responders as “NOs.” I know it’s harsh, but if I was nice enough to invite you, and give you weeks to respond and pre-adress and pre-stamp your envelope. All you had to do was say “yes” or “no” and drop it into a mailbox. If you can’t do that on time, perhaps you don’t care enough about my wedding and shouldn’t even come.

Usually you will get a bunch right away, and a bunch right before/on/after your responsed deadline.  The rest will trickle in, and there will likely be a few people you have to call in order to get an answer.

I got most of mine in the middle, which surprised me cause I thought a lot of people would send them back right away. Mine just kinda trickled in steadily and then I got like 5 on the RSVP deadline.

@LilDrAnya:  The only one I’m giving any slack to is my 20-year old nephew, but I’m still going to bug him since I’ll need his meal choice. Everyone else is getting this e-mail:

“Hi- Just wanted to check on your RSVP for our wedding on July 13th. We know you easy it is to let these dates get away from you, however we need to give our caterer a final number of guests. If we don’t hear back from you by June 23rd, we’ll have to assume that you are unable to attend.”

What kills me is that there are people who we *know* are coming- they blocked a hotel room, but they can’t be bothered to send in their rsvp? Still missing six from FI’s family, including the two great-aunts FMIL said HAD to be invited or they’d be insulted. Grrr! (ok, vent over!) 🙂

We got a TON the first couple of weeks. Then they trickled in. Then once the deadline passed people started sending like crazy again. I am dreading calling everyone because a lot of them are FMIL’s family/friends and they don’t even know my FI and I. If I could give a bride advice it would be limit guests that your parents and in-laws want to invite. Uff.

Ahh I’m so nervous about this. I need to give the table assignments to the escort card people like 3 weeks before the wedding, so I’m already trying to do a general sort of who I’d want with who (for those we already know are definitely coming), and then it’s going to be a mad dash at the end!!

I’m actually getting a bunch now after sending save the dates.  My wedding involves substantial travel for both of your families, and our hotel blocks already have rooms booked!
