We had a few nos rsvp right away, actually a few of the first ones we got were nos. Then the others never even replied! I had to call them still up until this week to find out if they were coming or not!

I’d say it was about half and half for us – half responded right away, and the other half took all sorts of work to track down.  Super annoying!

Most of our declines came right away…but we waited for 2/3 of the list until the week of our RSVP by date.  We received about 25 (yes’s) 2 weeks before our wedding.  Overall, we ended up with 15-20% of no’s and the rest came…with 1 couple as a no show.

We only had 2 “no” responses and both we had to track down in the last week. You’d think it would be easier to just send in the RSVP with a decline, then to have the bride call you the week before!

We had about 6 couples who “texted” us they were coming and did show but never sent back the RSVP….it drove us crazy at first.  Then they told us they misplaced our invitation.  The pocket was only the size of a magazine haha. 

In the end everything will be beautiful; try not to stress.  Those who don’t respond…give them a call 🙂

for us, the ones who did not respond timely were the singles who did not know if they were going to bring a date, and in the end they came but a few came as singles and others came with a date.

Most of the people who aren’t coming just didn’t rsvp at all.  I only received 2 rsvp’s and the majority of the people who didn’t even send the rsvp back probably don’t intend to come.  People don’t respect your need to have the rsvp’s to know who’s coming and how many people to pay for.  They don’t care that you have to pay per person or that you have to order a certain number of napkins, chairs, tablecloths, all that.  I think people think invitations are just for fun and they don’t have to respond at all.

RSVP date is the 10th of November and so far only about 22 people RSVP’d.  I am going to have to track people down, that I am sure of but for many of them, I don’t even know how to do this.  I will assume if they don’t rsvp, they can’t make it.  And will  try to make that clear through other family members.  It just sucks when they have sufficient time and all they have to do is call or text me their response…super easy.
