Wow, you guys are early birds, I just sent out invites last week for my mid-September wedding! I was afraid that if they went out too early people would forget about them, and I didn’t want to set the rsvp date crazy early, my friends don’t even get their work schedules that far in advance.

Sent RSVP’s out July 1st

Expected answer date August 15th

Sent out 46 invites

Accepts 37  (95 guests)

Declines 8 (16 guests)

All but one RSVP is accounted for

 

***Had to get the S.O. to call up his family to confirm, since they all assumed that they didn’t have to mail the RSVP’s in “cause we should know that they’re coming”. At least that’s what they all told him. ***

Update! Here’s a pie chart! 🙂 We sent out 59 invites total, so we’re still missing quite a few, and I set the RSVP by date as this Friday. I’m going to have to track down some people. Urg.

Here is my update for this week!

Wedding Date:  October 1

Mailed: August 1

Response Date: Sept 3

Invites Sent: 124

People Invited: 244

RSVP’s Received: 78

Attending: 118

Not Attending: 32

Invites Missing: 46

Errors Identified So far: 2 (sent invite to wrong address! 1 was my fault, 1 was FI’s)

I am happy with our 62% return rate – people still have 9 days to RSVP and from what I have heard most people get a small “flood” of RSVPs the last couple days!

OH – added fact, of our 118 attending the split is different than I expected between chicken and beef – i thought fairly 50/50 but it is 75 beef, 41 chicken, 2 veggie so 64% beef, 35% chicken!
