    I got a handful immediately (about 5 two days after mailing), then a huge lull, then a bunch way too close to the deadline (and after).  It’s SO much fun checking the mail, IMO!  Have fun!

    Like the previous poster, mine came in waves.. I got quite a few right away (like 4-5 days after I mailed, these were all local people and mostly close family and friends). I would say the first week I got about 15 of the 90ish I sent out. Then it slowed down but I got at least 1 almost every day (there were a few sad days where I got none) When I was about a week and a half from them being due (I gave 6 weeks as well), I had about 35 RSVP’s not recieved. I got a big rush the last week 5-6 a day. Mine were due this past Saturday (March 9th) on on that day, I had still not recieved about 10 of them. I called those people Sunday, most of them forgot but a few had mailed them on like Thursday-Friday and they just hadn’t arrived yet. I got 3 after the due date. I now have all the answers though!

    For us, we got a huge influx, then it died down, then another huge influx!

    We got our first one two days after they were sent! Since then, it’s been a couple every day for a week. Yesterday was the first day we received none, boo. It’s exciting to see who’s mailed back their RSVP. I’m guessing we’re going to get a lot closer to the deadline.

    I haven’t even sent my invites out yet, and I probably won’t until sometime in April.

    I have only sent out my Save the Dates (within the last 2 weeks) and had several people call or text me within a couple days commenting they had recieved them.

    I received an online RSVP the very next day after mailing the invitation! Very quick, but definitely worried if I will receive 100% response in the end.

    I just sent my invitations out today, but I got my first response card yesterday.  My family helped me stuff envelopes yesterday, so my brother and his girlfriend just handed me their card.  I’m not expecting anymore until the end of the week.

    I got the first one 3 days after mailing, and 6 came the following day. Checking the mail is now my favorite activity of the day!
