I’ve been so eager to be able to post … our RSVP deadline is tomorrow and we’re still needing a bunch of RSVPs back (slightly bothersome but its to be expected)

Invites were sent around the 10th of March. Wedding is May 25th

81% (We invited about 230 people)

3.  What’s your acceptance rate for those who have RSVPed?  ((# of yeses divided by total # of responses)*100)

We’ve gotten some really sweet messages but I really enjoyed an RSVP from my FI’s friend and wife who put hearts everywhere and “yays” .. someones super excited to attend!

Final Update:

Our wedding is next Saturday (squee!)

There are still a small amount of people who simply did not respond. Did not email back, did not text back, totally went incommunicado. Some were my fiance’s cousins who are somewhat estranged. Some were friends who I guess don’t like us anymore? I really don’t know. They dropped of the face of the world.

But taking those as just plain No, here are our final numbers.

Invited: 256 

Attending: 156 

We had a number of out-of-town guests and college-age family who were unable to attend because it’s the end of the school year (who knew? Not this early 30’s childless couple)

We’ll have a blast, and can’t wait to see everyone! My future in-laws arrive in less than a week!

And the weather is set to be what I call “chamber of commerce weather” pleasant, not too hot, not too cold, just perfect!

Probably not my last update since we have some to track down, but as of the RSVP deadline we are at:

Wedding May 31st

Deadline April 26

Response Rate:  84% (have to track down 23 out of 136)

Acceptance Rate:  78% wooo!  

I will say, I am happy we are not having the possible 250-guest wedding we would have had if everyone accepted our invitation, however I am a little bummed at some of our declines.  We did send a lot of courtesy invitations and I was expecting about an 81% acceptance rate.  You hope and pray that you get at least a few declines, but when they come from guests you really wanted there, and thought would be there, it hurts.

Updating from my last post.  My RSVP date is tomorrow, and 99% have RSVPed.  The only ones we’re missing are family who have to wait until the last possible moment.

Of those that have RSVPed, 73% have been responded Yes.  Even some of our our of country friends are flying in! 

A bunch of RSVPs were lost in the mail, and a few people didn’t get their invitations delivered, so it’s been a major pain.  Fortunately, everyone has been very accessable, making this process much easier.

Wedding date – May 17th.

2. What percentage of your guest list (including you and FI) have RSVPed?

My Future Mother-In-Law still hasn’t RSVPed. Obviously I know if she is coming but she hasn’t told me if she’s bringing a plus one. Ugh!
