OMG!! This makes me so nervous!  My plan was to get my invites out mid-February but this has not happened.  This weekend will be the one to get this done.  I have nightmares that noone shows

our venue doesn’t hold more than 185 people, but we invited a little over 200 because we figured we would get some no’s! but it’s crazy we have gotten already half of them back with no no’s!!!!

We’re having a semi destination wedding (i.e in our hometown but most guests coming from out of town!) So we sent our invites in Mid-January. Of 80 expected people for the ceremony so far we’ve had 3 nos, and 61 yes’s which I guess is pretty good… however we also put March 1st as our RSVP date so we’re still missing almost 20 responses with only a few days left til the ‘deadline’! I’m not worried yet though, our wedding isn’t until April 30th and the stragglers are mostly local friends who probably don’t need to plan that far in advance and also probaly assume we just know they’re coming – sure would be nice if they returned their menu choices though!!

Mine were picked up by Mr (or maybe Mrs or Miss or Ms.) Mailman today!  Although we had sent 5 out last week due to them not receiving a save the date and I have received 1 of those back so far!  It made me happy and is now hanging on our fridge!

Our wedding is April 2 and we mailed the invites mid January since we had a lot of out of towners on the list.

Of 102 total invites, we have 47 adults and 9 children confirmed. I expect maybe 5-10 more yes’s. We were hoping for around 60 for the reception, so it looks like we’ll be on target. A susbstantial portion of our list was out of towners who we didn’t really think would come.

I sent ours out last week, February 15. We have about 150 total invites and so far 48 YES. Uggghh…I really hope we don’t get the full 150. Lol

So far NO ONE in my family has responded, or the bridal party, parents of the groom, or anyone else that I definitely know is coming. It’s really funny because at this point I’m joking saying “I won’t know anyone at the wedding!” I am thankful that people are RSVPing quickly though. I’m sure that it will dwindle down as people procrastinate and forget. I think I gave people too long of a response window. (Until April 2nd)

It sure is fun checking the mail every day! I’m like “who is going to reply today?!”

Isn’t it so much fun getting the RSVP’s back?!  I can’t wait to get home each day to check our mail.  We invited 91 and so far have gotten 43 yes and 13 no responses.  We are hoping for 75 guests.
