  • Wedding: October 2014

My wedding is October 4th…

 

Date you send out your invites?  I sent them out the first 2 weeks of August… I made them all myself and miscounted how many I needed so most were sent out August 6/7, but a handful were sent out a week after that.

How many invites? about 80 invites – 169 people

Date RSVPs are due? September 4

How many have you had accept/delcine so far? 34 accepted, 10 declined.  We invited more than I’d planned on… I’m still really hoping for about 20 more declines!  We wanted about 130 people at the wedding… I’m going to start hastling people soon!

Date you send out your invites? Most were in the mail August 4th. About 3 extras that came up just got mailed out last week.

How many invites? 43 invites went out (Total number invited was 76 adults and 7 kids)

Date RSVPs are due? September 5th

How many have you had accept/decline so far? Out of the 43 mailed I have gotten a RSVP card back from 14 so far. No declines yet although I am still waiting for a response from 29 people so who knows.

I am going to add this mini rant also about my co-workers. After the last person in my small office got married and only invited select individuals people made a big deal about being excluded. I was careful to avoid that by inviting all of them (+ their spouses!) which equaled out to 15 individual invites being mailed. So far I have gotten back THREE of the 15 and I see these people every day! What the heck!

Our wedding is October 11th.

Date you send out your invites? August 9th

How many invites?  ~70 invitations (~166 invited guests which included everyone’s kids, but I ended up not writing some families’ kids name on the invitations to leave it ambiguous)

Date RSVPs are due?  September 15th

How many have you had accept/decline so far?  26 adults/6 kids have accepted and 6 declines.

ETA: We had 3 RSVPs come back with no names written on them, and I just have to say that numbering the back of our RSVPs was the best wedding related tip I’ve used so far!

How many have you had accept/delcine so far?  So far, we have 131 guests, with about 20 outstanding, but I’m assuming those are mostly declines.

My wedding date is Oct 4.

Date you send out your invites?  Sometime around the mid to end of July.

How many invites?  175 people invited

Date RSVPs are due?  Sept 3

How many have you had accept/delcine so far?  I belive about 84 yes, 17 no, and the rest are MIA.  Starting to panic a bit one week to go and still slightly less than half of the invited have not returned. 

 

Vip0802:  I agree the best wedding tip ever was to put a number on each RSVP card.  Two people already returned their RSVP cards with no names.  LOL.  Thanks to Weddingbee I numbered the RSVP cards.

I think I’ve sent out about 96 or so, I still have another 15 to send out. I started to send mine out around the 8th of August during my family reunion. Officially I sent them all out on the 10th of August. I’ve gotten back 11 cards all accepting. With a total of 26 people. I hope I stay under the 240 mark with about 220 tops! Wedding date is October 12th 2014! I gave them until the 12th of Septmeber, but knowing my friends and family I will get them even until the week of the wedding lol.
