(Closed) Do the “No” RSVP’s usually come in later?

I’m fixing to have to start calling no responders as well, and I’m inclined to think this is the case. I think the ones who know they aren’t coming just forget to send off the RSVP because they put the wedding out of their mind since they’re not going… so I’m expecting most of my follow ups to be “no”s.

The first week that we got RSVPs back they were almost all yes’s. Toward the middle they got to be pretty mixed between yes and no. Almost all of the people who didn’t respond (about 10?) were no. Good luck!

We sent ours out very early because we didn’t do save-the-dates.  The first few weeks we got only “yes” responses – all from close family and those friends and relatives who are local.  The out-of-town responses started coming in much later and are mixed.  Some people have said they are coming, but haven’t mailed the cards yet.  I expect to get a bunch close to the deadline and to have to call some people after the deadline passes.

Yeah so far we’ve received RSVPs from 109 of 199 people and out of those only 5 are a no, (we expected them to be).  I think your theory is right about people putting it out of their minds.  Looks like we’ll have some phone calls to make.

@europomme:in short “YES!”

 

ETA Definitely call the non responders, though. A few may be yeses.

I’m ready to see some NO responses, to be honest. We just mailed ours out because we just switched our date. People have been REALLY good about getting them back to me and apparently, so far, they are all excited to join us.

Which is no good because I was planning on some of these not showing.

But I won’t complain. 🙂

I’m getting married next weekend and we just got an RSVP “yes.”  Why do people think that’s ok?  People are so rude!  It’s so hard re-arranging table assignments constently!

Actually our first rsvp we received was a no. Some of the people we didn’t hear from are nos, so I guess that they just figure since they aren’t going, they don’t have to respond.  I did have several people send no responses within the time, so I don’t think I saw much correlation that the yeses respond first and then the nos.

I found that I had more responses in the last week before I asked them to be in and also in the first few days after they were supposed to be in.

Yes! Make sure to call the people who didn’t RSVP. I just found out today that one couple never received theirs! It must have been lost in the mail somehow because I know that I have their address right.
