  • Wedding: July 2013

Fun idea! I’m working on getting the final addresses and +1 names and hope to send by Friday.

Date of wedding: July 14th

RSVP date: June 14th

Number of invites/invited people: 36 invites/90 people (including children)

Goal: 50 people

Number accepted: No official acceptances since we didn’t do a test batch

Number declined: 8 after the Save-The-Date Cards (two friends with new jobs and one uncle’s family)

Biggest fear: Having even less than 50 🙁 especially if more from my side decline

  • Wedding: July 2013

Date of wedding: July 6th

RSVP date: June 8th

Number of invites/invited people: 67/around 115

Goal: Around 60.

Number accepted: 11, not including immediate family.

Number declined: 3

Biggest fear: I’m hoping we have less than 80 people. Our friend that is marrying us gets a little nervous in front of large crowds!


We just sent our invites out last Monday. I know it’s still early, but I’ve become a bit obsessive about checking our wedding website to see if anyone else has registered. The vast majority of our family and friends are traveling quite a long way to be with us. We have a good idea of which ones won’t be able to make it to the wedding, but I really hope our immediate family members will be there!

I’m getting married July 27th. I’m not sending my invitations out until May 20th. My RSVP date is July 1st. I figure I will have plenty of time to track people down and make a seating arrangement since I won’t be working. It’s the nice thing about being a teacher with a summer wedding!

Dropped my invites off at the post office yesterday – made the guy check the weight and thickness twice just to be sure, I have no time or extra materials to make more if they come back to me 🙂

I can’t wait to come back to update this thread when I start to get them back.

Although I did get my dad’s back already, so there’s ONE, 69 more to go!
