@FMILady: I used real mail and enjoyed getting the responses back.  We had a handful of no-shows (people sick); I think it’s normal to have a few no-shows… and there will always be the people you have to hunt down an RSVP for – I think it was about 20% of my guest list (we had to call).

We used snail mail.  We invited close to 180 people, only 80ish (maybe 25 RSVP Cards) RSVP’d on time and actually sent theirs in.  The rest we had to call.  In the end we had about a 30% acceptance rate and we only had a handful say they were coming and not show up; we had one couple who didn’t RSVP and Mother-In-Law said they wouldn’t be coming and they showed up to the wedding.

I kept tally in Excel.

We had a very small wedding, and nearly everyone we invited came (35 of 38). The 3 people who RSVP’d no we already knew in advance could not come. Everyone RSVP’d on time, too! We did the traditional response cards in the SASE, and also had a website RSVP option.
