    I think if it was email, nothing further is required.

    If it was through a website, then definitely email them to let them know it was received.

    I did, for most of them.  I didn’t bother for people I see often.  I did mail RSVPs and most people responded that way, only a few people used our email.

    I don’t think it’s required, but it’s a nice touch, especially for people you think might be a little worried about it.

    I would appreciate a quick, “Thanks! Can’t wait to see you!” It only takes a couple of seconds and it puts their mind at ease that you got it.

    I would want a quick response–either, “great! I’m so happy you’re coming!” or “thanks for letting me know. I’ll miss you!”

    It doesn’t take long and just seems like a nice thing to do.

    we had rsvps through a website but they had the option to enter their email address if they wanted to receive an automated confirmation. But I didnt manually email anyone just to say we had received it.  I personally dont think a response is required for an email rsvp

    The email I put for our RSVPs is my Fiance so I have no idea if he has been. I have not been responding to the guests who have RSVPd on our wedding website. Oops. Maybe the month before our wedding I will shoot our “yes” list a quick email to let them know I look forward to seeing them and thanking them. That way it will also serve as a reminder since our invites went out 3 months before and our RSVP date is 2 months before the big day.

    I they RSVP ‘no,’ I’d send them a quick email thanking them. If they RSVP ‘yes,’ I wouldn’t bother. I always assume people get my emails unless I hear otherwise.
