Our response due date is here today! We actually did pretty well. I was surprised we had no guests assume dates or kids and majority sent them back. We verbally heard from 4 couples so marked them yes or no and just need to wait for their meal choice but atleast i can start tables. Fiance will probably be calling the last 3 people today unless they are in the mail this afternoon.

We’re up to 61! Slowly creeping towards 70. This is a strategic game now. Hoping a few people decline (because I simply don’t want them there) and a few others accept (because they are so much fun to party with).

My wedding is August 4th, and our RSVP deadline is July 4th.  We have received 15 out of 31 RSVPs (21 people yes, 5 no).  Sigh.  We have had quite a few verbal responses as well, some of whom I unfortunately don’t expect to have the decency to send their official RSVP (insert rant about FI’s family and friends lol).  I’m hoping to receive more in the next few days from those that are procrastinators.

I have 92 accepts and 40 declines with approximately 50 people undecided (25 RSVP’s not received) Our deadline is July 20th. We hope to have approx. 120 at the wedding, so hopefully we don’t get too many more yes’s though. We could fit them all technically, its an outdoor wedding and tented reception, but it would be crowded. I don’t think it’ll be an issue though. Most of the undecideds are either out of state (so probably no’s if they haven’t bought the tickets by now) or on the side of my family that has another wedding that day (not blood family, step-family) so those will mostly be no’s to I think….but then why can’t you RSVP??!! We sent self adressed stamped envelopes people! It’s simple! (End rant) Ugh.

We sent ours out around June 20th, with an RSVP date of July 10th.  Sent out 112, gotten 33 back, so 29% return rate so far.  Out of the 286 people who were invited, we have 64 confirmed attendees, 7 of which are children.  Not looking forward to tracking down the million or so that I expect won’t be returned a week from now!

We did electronic/voicemail RSVPs… 103 invited, 51 accepted, 10 declined, so over half have responded. The deadline is over a week away so hopefully a few more will answer before I have to make all those phonecalls!!
