@d_mari3: I totally understand where you are coming from. Especially since a lot of people have told me they are coming but yet still no official RSVP. I had to take a step back, because my fiance thinks I really shouldn’t worry about it until September 10th…..which is the RSVP by date. I hope you get more coming through soon.

Oooh, good thread – I think about this every day!

Date mailed: July 15th

RSVP date: August 31st

# Invites mailed: 51 (97 people)

# RSVPs Attending: 31 returned, 64 attending (includes 2 uninvited guests, lol)

# RSVPs Not Attending: 1 

# RSVPs missing: 20 (33 people)

The single “no” reply that we’ve received was for a member of a family where the rest of the family was replying “yes.” My Fiance is of the opinion that people who are not coming will simply not reply at all, which is maddening! We’ve toyed with the idea of sending invites to other people, like a “b-list”, but how can you do that if the people who aren’t going to come never bother to reply?

I haven’t counted them all yet, but they’ve been coming in steadily since we sent out the invites. We had an online RSVP option and a postcard return option where they only had to check a box and drop it in the mail. I tried to make it as easy as possible. 😛

Wedding Date: October 1, 2011

Date mailed: July 25th

RSVP date: August 26th

# Invites mailed: About 55 (about 100 people) – we vetted our B list and added/nixed some people last minute, so I’m not sure on the final count here.

# RSVPs Attending: about 17 (about 25 people)

# RSVPs Not Attending: 3 (5 people)

# RSVPs missing: about 35
