We have gootten about 50% of our RSVP’s back with 70 yeses and 5 declines. Kinda scary considering we invited the maximum number of people that will fit in our venue. How have your RSVPs coming in and how do you feel about it?

I’ve gotten around 10-15% of the RSVPs and the deadline is 6/7. I don’t know why people take their time dropping it off at the mailbox or going on the wedding website to RSVP. But to be fair, I did take over 2 wks to do the same thing to my cousin’s wedding. I guess it’s human’s nature to procrasinate.

Our deadline was 5/24 but I made it early. Future Mother-In-Law did not get the addresses for FI’s side of the family (distant cousins mostly) so those were sent in late May with an RSVP of 6/24. But now Future Father-In-Law wants to invite some co-workers so I still have a third round of invites to print, stuff, seal, stamp and mail.

I was just telling my cousin I have never RSVP’d to anything on time until now. I guess it’s karma. Hehe.

We’ve gotten 21 of 35 rsvps back, with 44 confirmed adults + 6 kids. Reply date is 6/9, so hopefully will get more this week. (I’m actually still waiting for one from one of my bridesmaids, actually! But I know she’ll be there. 😛 )

I got quite a few back right away, within a couple days of mailing them out. Now, with the deadline of June 5th, I’ve only gotten about 25% back. I’m getting scared! Do people typically RSVP last minute? About what percentage don’t RSVP and do people end up calling?

my invites won’t go out until next year, but it will be my karma, too, because i never rsvp on time for anything!

I have received 35 our of 54 responses, of them we had:
30 accept (for 60 people), and 5 decline (13 people).
2 of the declines were total surprises (people who “wouldn’t miss it for the world”). We are still 7 weeks out so we are going to offer invitations to a couple people we wouldn’t fit before.

Our RSVP date is June 6th and we have 70% of our RSVPs are in!!! Our acceptance rate is about what we thought, so we’re doing okay. Its nice to get real mail every day!

Our ‘on or before day’ is today May 31 – we have received 26 RSVP’s back out of 56. We have had not one “can’t make it” My dad is going around inviting random people and just calling me after the fact to tell me about it which is stressing me out as I only rented so many chair covers and chairs and sashes and table runners and we are getting close to the big day!! EEK – I wish he would stop that – not only that but there is only so much room in the hall and I am worried that he will push us over.
I also had one of my aunts and uncles RSVP for 6 – the invite was to them (2 people) and they added on 4 … another big EEK!!! But I have to say I am getting pretty exicted!!

Our RSVP date is June 12th.
- 68 invitations mailed – 142 people invited.
- 23 invitations returned (34%)
- 48 yes
- 34% based on total number invited
- 92% based on invites actually received to date
- 4 no
- 3% based on total number invited
- 8% based on invites actually received to date
- 45 invitations unreturned (66%)
We have multiple out of town relatives that I don’t expect to come, but I would like the confirmation via RSVP. More people need to return the RSVPs (and it’s okay if some of them reply “no.”)

Our invites just went out at a week ago and our deadline is 6/20 so we’re just starting to get them back. But so far we’ve gotten about 20% back and there were no surprises. Everyone who we predicted would decline/accept has done exactly what we thought they would. So that’s going well. But we haven’t heard from the people who we weren’t really able to guess about so we’ll see…

@pammyd- i am feeling the same way! My FIL’s and my mom keep adding. They do not care that this is extra work for my friend who made the invites herself and me who has to assemble them and send them out! Plus, we are nearing the six week mark and don’t want to send invites too late.
Also, we said single guests (as in were not in relationships at the time the invites were sent) were not permitted to bring guests unless they were family, because our friends are all friends and will know lots of people. Now, everyone is talking crap or assuming they can bring a guest. I guess nobody googles etiquette everyday like I do!

We’re a week and half past our reply date (May 21st) and are still missing 15 reply cards out of the 56 we originally sent out.

I sent my invites at the end of April. My deadline is 6/4 and so far I’ve gotten responses from my side of the family and only have 4 invites pending from my list. My fiances family are dragging their feet. I’ve only gotten 4 responses from his side and one of those responses was from a cousin of his that said he was bringing all four of his children in addition to his wife. We are not having children at our wedding so you can imagine how frustrated I will be when my fiance’s family starts responding and they think they can bring the kids. They have for days until my deadline and then i’ll have to hit the phone.
