Invited 230, sent out 115 invites…

101 Yes

33 No

Still awaiting 47 RSVP’s and my deadline is Friday! I don’t get people, I really don’t.. We haven’t even gotten back that many but I’ve just heard by word of mouth that some people are or aren’t coming so I’ve marked them down to get a better idea of my #’s!

@Habibah14: When did you send your invites out? I didn’t send mine out until 8/27 or so, I wish I had sent them out earlier b/c people are taking longer than I anticipated even though STD’s went out 9 months ago!

@Jerseygirl23 We sent them out around August 12th or 13th which was earlier than I had originally planned otherwise I would have made the date for last week but had already printed. People have had over 2 months and still have a bunch of stragglers!

SO, the final count is in! (for the most part)

TOTAL INVITED: 171

YES: 115

NO: 52

STILL WAITING ON (but i’m guessing no): 4

 

i also have four yes’s that i’m just assuming will be yes’s…so either way, we’re good!

Ours is a destination on a Tuesday, so our numbers will seem a bit funky compared to everyone else, but here are the totals!!

Invited 176

Accepted 42

Decline 134

We wanted a small bunch, right around 40-50, and thats exactly what we got, so we are thrilled!  Why invite so many, you may ask…because we didnt want to NOT invite people, we just knew they wouldnt be coming anyway. 🙂 Does that make sense?!?  hehe

Total invited: 75

Yes: 34

No: 5

Waiting on: 36!! My deadline was 3 days ago.

I’m going to start calling at the end of the week. I’m sure that at least 30 of the remaining 36 are a definite yes.

Our final count is in:

Invited: 217

Yes: 167

No: 50

We ended up with more declines than we anticipated and are really happy about it (terrible to say, I know, but it’s true!), because now we no longer have to worry about cramming everyone into our room (that seats 180 max) and we will save a little money, which is always a good thing.

We only had to call a couple people, which surprised me. And we have about four people who are currently “maybes” due to life circumstances that may understandably prevent them from attending – we don’t have to give final numbers until 72 hours before, so I’ve just asked them to let me know when they can.

YES: 80

NO: 56

OUTSTANDING: 10 or so, i dont remember

We have a ton of out of town people on that list, so its a little more No’s then most people.

Its incredibly annoying to track down people, especially people I see everyday!
