We still have not heard from a lot of people as well – over 50 of about 215 that were invited. Our deadline was yesterday!! Ive heard that the NOs come at the beginning and at the end because people either know for sure they arent coming or they are waiting on something to make a decision and at the last minute they decide no.

well having just gone throughth is….

– we got up front no from people who care about us who had actual obligations and were genuinely sad they couldn’t come.

– then we gots lots of yes with an occasional no sprinkled in

– 3 days before our deadline, we had about 120 unknowns. many of these people are people who could come if they want but were still trying to decide if they wanted to bother getting dressed up and driving over or are waiting to see is something more interesting comes along (can you tell i’m a little bitter? no?). there were some who genuinely were still trying to work out logistics (travel, babysitting).

– our deadline was wednesday and we had about 45 unknowns at that point. mostly extended family or random friends who don’t have the courtesy to respond but are probably going to be nos.

we invited 350. we have 174 yes with about 25-30 unknowns. we started calling people yesterday and will continue i guess for the next few days. i’ve been very stressed out about this whole RSVP process. honestly how hard is it to send back an already stamped card? hello?

I’m trying to think back, but I think most of our no responses were toward the end, actually. I think of our guests who were on the fence about coming waiting until the last minute, and then sent in their no responses.

But that was just us. I’m not sure if this is a common trend or not.

I’d imagine you’d have a higher percentage of Nos at the end. The people who didn’t send them back are either still making up their minds or didn’t think they had to RSVP since they weren’t going to come.

@andy113: seriously the freakin card is already stamped! literally all my guests had to do was check “accept” or “decline” because it was a postcard AND they were numbered so even if they didnt write in their names I would have known who it was!
