I didn’t receive ANY RSVPs for about a week, then today I got one, which was a yes.  I know people still have time, but come on!! Only 3 people out of our 14 person bridal party has sent their RSVP back.

Update…

Invited: somehow it’s now 90? After I had strictly capped it at 80? I have no idea. Some people are bringing their kids who we never thought would even want to do that. Weird.

Yes: 40

No: 9

Reply date: August 25

We’re in a bit of an RSVP drought right now. My guess is that people who already knew they were coming sent them right back, and now the people who need to figure things out or are procrastinating are doing that. I think I probably gave people to much time between sending invites and RSVP-by date, and that date could have actually been later. Oh well. People seem to like the invites, which is nice!

We invited around 129

So far we have 82 yes  6 no and waiting for 41 more people (22 RSVP) with the deadline of August 25th.

Last week we only got one every other day, but we started getting three a day for the past two days.  Hopefully we will get most of it back next week.

I am just totally shocked with our numbers. I really thought that having a Sunday wedding would me less people would attend. 

Invited: 115

Yes: 94

No: 3

No reponse: 18 (but pretty much every one of those is a yes)

RSVP deadline is tomorrow so in a few days (once I contact the stragglers) I should have all of our numbers. 

WHY IS EVERYONE COMING???

UPDATE:  today is our RSVP deadline

89- yes

24- no

22- not received

All of the not receiveds are FI’s friends and are a total crapshoot.  When we follow up with them some will reply NO and show up anyway and some will reply YES, then no show.  My best guess is that we will have 95 present.

Getting super frustrated….. 1 week left for RSVP’s to come in and we’re missing 46 RSVP’s!!!  As in, not 46 people, but 46 RSVP’s – that’s about 150 people!  I know a week left is “a lot” but the past 2 days we haven’t gotten ANY in the mail and we had gotten at least one a day since July 9th.  I’m dreading having to contact that many people.

@LaurenKK: i feel you! my deadline is next saturday and out of 304 people invited, 172 have accepted and 16 have declined, so i’m still waiting to hear from 116 people. it’s so frustrating! we’ve received at least one rsvp pretty much every day for the last month or so and i’m hoping my mailbox will be flooded with them for the next 7 days. i’ll keep my fingers crossed for both of us!

@lilchicana:  Fingers crossed for you too!  Sometimes I want to go grab my mailman and ask him if the PO is playing a trick on me and stashing all my RSVP’s somewhere… 😉

We invited 215 people and so far 124 are yes’s and only 10 are no’s! I NEED more declines hahaha and those who are left to reply are mostly family that I know will be there!

I think I have been pretty chilled out this whole planning process and now I am starting to freak out! all of the sudden I only have 48 days left!
