We mailed our invites Valentine’s weekend, our response date is March 19 and we invited 304. So far we have 107 attending, 13 not attending, and 5 children under the age of 5 so we aren’t paying for them.

@Ms.Teddy: I numbered mine- which was more difficult than I thought, and no one has left theirs blank!  Shocked.

we sent out mid Jan because we have so many out of towners.. today is the rsvp deadline.

so far:

invited – 147

rsvp yes – 70

rsvp no – 13

so we still need a good 50+ responses!!  I guess we will have to start chasing people.

Well as of yesterday, 3-3-11, we have received 7 yes’s, 4 no’s. Sent out 50 invites for 99 guests. 

I can only imagine my mailbox at home is going to look like Grand Central Station for the next 2 weeks! haha. Well see…My rsvp date was for March 11.

Though I’m already a bit freakin’ out b/c my sister said the other day she still hadn’t received her official invite in the  mail! Eek! I mailed it out on Feb. 23…and as of yesterday (a day and a week since I mailed it out) she hadn’t got it yet! 🙁

So….I hope to goodness that my other guests got theirs and hope that by the weekend my sister WILL recieve hers! Fingers crossed! Main freak out reason is b/c I hand made the invites….cut paper, glue/tape, stamped, embossed, layered…and now don’t have most of the materials left to make more…

So, will just have to see..sigh!

OMG!!! Invites went in the mail on Saturday for my April 30 wedding. There are still about 15 invites to go out (FI has yet to get me addresses – UGH) but hopefully, I should see some responses in a week or so. YEAH!!!

I’m nervous now

i’m so glad i’m not the only one anxious about the guest count. we sent out 215 invites, 84 yes, 60 no, and still waiting. we need to get 125 guests to say yes by April 28th! so hopefully we hear back from people. about 90% of our guests are out of town :/

We sent out 108 invites. 6 went to Europe, so we just asked them to tell my parents whether they are coming.

Of the other 102, we have 59 RSVPs back, 4 of them are no. Deadline is the 19th.

The RSVPs keep rolling in! We sent out 151 invites for 366 guests and so far we have 124 have said yes and 27 have said no (or aren’t bringing children). Our deadline is April 2nd and I’m getting so antsy to get these back so we can get on with the planning!

Deadline was on Saturday.  We got 75% of the 160 back.  I’ve started calling, emailing and texting those that didn’t RSVP. Right now we are at 111.  I wanted to be below 120, but it looks like (with my estimates of who is and isn’t coming) we will be around 130.

Today I’ve contacted five people and four of them didn’t get their invites 🙁 I confirmed their addresses, they weren’t sent back to me. Darn post office.
