I totally understand! I sent out 100 rsvp cards and only received back about 30 (including declined ones as well) and they were due back on 3 days ago. 

I’m frustrated because I know a lot of people are coming but they just haven’t rsvp yet.

And I didn’t get a “maybe” but I did get one that said Number of persons: “4-6” I was like WHAT? I sent the invite out to 2 friends (who are sisters so the invite was for the both of them and addressed as so) but I have no idea where they came up with 4-6. I’m thinking maybe their parents are coming as well which would show the “4” but I have no idea where the other 2 people are coming from

It doesn’t bother me too bad…..except the fact that I need to KNOW how many people AND that I don’t know who the other people are that they rsvp for…??? frustrating. I’d at least like to know the people that show up for my wedding….

The RSVP thing is so annoying!  We sent out about 105 cards – I have about 35 back so far.  As of now, only 2 people from our 9 person wedding party has RSVPed!  My FML hasn’t either.  I know all of these people are coming, but I’d like the cards back to confirm it.  Let’s get cracking people!  πŸ˜‰

Ugh – I thought they would come in quickly but its sooooo slow!

We invited – 77

Accepted – 13

Declined – 8

Waiting – 56 – Including ALL the wedding party!!!!!

Mine have only been out (received by guests) for about a week or so… but still. A lot of those people KNOW they are coming!

That’s what frustrates me – you know you’re coming, so just check it off and drop it in the mail.  I provided a stamp for you and everything!  Surprised

Sent the invitations out almost two weeks ago. Invited 15 “households” 40 people for YES, 7 NO, and the rest are outstanding. However, most of our guests live at least several states away, so we anticipated it would take longer. Our RSVP date is July 14th.

we sent ours out early and wanted them back early so we could plan it all peacefully and aheead of time. Unfortunately this has caused 2 people to RSVP as 80% yes (what do I do with that?) and 4 to flat out say it is too soon for them to decide.

 

sigh.

We sent ours out last Wednesday. Sent 250 invites out, so far 16 of them have come back. Have been getting at least a few in the mail each day. Only 1 person from the wedding party has RSVP’d so far, and neither of our parents have yet. Kind of surprised by that. I mean, really? πŸ™‚

Our RSVP deadline is 7.14.

Spoke to Future Mother-In-Law today about the RSVP’s, and she actually said “Oh, you want me to mail it back to you? But you know I’m coming.”    Grrrr!! Of course I want you AND each and every invited guest to mail it back to me because I took the time to number the RSVP cards, stuff the invitations, put postage on the outer envelope AND return postage on the RSVP.   OMG.

Here’s where I’m at so far. 

Invited: 146 people

Accepted: 56

Declined: 4 (one couple and 2 people who decided not to bring a date)

Outstanding: 86

My RSVP deadline is July 14th.  When do you guys think most of the no responses will come in?  Early or late?

We are getting a couple every day. We sent them last week and already have about 10 back and only 1 decline. πŸ™‚
