@NYCowgirl:  We have the same RSVP and wedding date! We invited 110 hoping for 100 because the space is not very large (they said it can seat up to 120, but that seemed to be pushing it to me, especially with a dance floor). So far we’ve only had one decline (plus two add-ons!), and we’ve had about 50 people respond so far. I’m hoping a lot of people are going to send it in soon because I would like to avoid having to track so many people down!

I’m 6/22, but close enough!  Don’t worry just yet, I think a lot of people will wait until the last minute to mail theirs.  Our RSVP deadline is June 1st, we’ve only got about 30% right now, and many that are missing are from people we know will be there.

We’ve gotten most of ours in, but a lot of that has to do with us keeping in touch with people. There are quite a few people who didn’t RSVP, but verbally told us if they were coming or not. Just start kindly checking in with people, and you will probably start getting them rolling in again!

@NYCowgirl:  I have the same wedding and RSVP dates. So far, out of 276 invited, I’ve gotten 126 yes’s and 22 declines. So we are still waiting to hear from 128 guests!! And they have 3 days until the deadline. Hmm.. 🙂

@NYCowgirl:  We had a May 1 deadline and out of about 140 invitations, we heard back from about 90 by the deadline day. MOST of the rest came in the past week – I think most people mailed them back on May 1 or 2! And definitely start following up verbally so you can send a friendly reminder, make sure they received the invitation, etc. We found out that some people didn’t even receive our invitation until nearly a month after they were mailed! Some people you can take the verbal RSVP as a definite, and others, I would wait for the paper. Depends on their personality and how reliable they are with this type of thing :o). Don’t stress!

I was receiving about an average of 3 per day but last week that fell off. My reply by date isn’t until 5/21, so I’m hoping more will trickle in before then.

A lot of people send replies at the last minute, so you might get a ton during the last week. And some people lose their RSVP cards – a few have emailed and called to let me know they’re coming.

I have 48 replies too, but I’m nervous for a different reason. I wanted a smaller, intimate wedding of 40-50, but it looks like we might get many more than that. A lot of Out of Town people are flying in – even some people out of country!

@NYCowgirl:  Yes I am counting verbal yes’s, although I’ve only had maybe one or two of those. Most verbal RSVP’s were no’s.

@NYCowgirl:  I know – and I just went through the list and a whopping 30 of those people are from the school that we work at!! I guess we teachers really procrastinate..

I got 4 more today, hopefully the rest come in soon!
