We got *almost* everyone’s card back. Probably at least 90% actually RSVPed one way or the other. Ended up with about a 67% “yes” rate.

Maybe half?  They were certainly a waste of friggin money — I had to email just about everyone, anyway.

We got about 85% of our cards back.  We had to email or call the others.

Our yes rate is at about 63%

not enough in my experience…I spent so much money on the stamps and about 1/3 only sent them back….it really sucked….

We did it online, no card, but we had a definative RSVP without tracking people down from everyone (there were a few maybes we did have to track down though last minute)

Most did it online, a few called and a few word of mouth through my mom or Mother-In-Law. I didnt care how they did it, as long as I didnt have to go after them.
