  • Wedding: October 2014

Wedding Date: 4 October 2014

Date you sent out invites: May 2014

How many invites?: Around 70 invites (total of 144 people)

Date rsvps are due: 6 September

How many declines or accepts: So far 81 people have confirmed their attendace and 6 have declined.

These declines were expected since they are old people and couldn’t take a 6 hours drive to my wedding due to health concerns.

I have univited my crazy, drug using, and violent cousin after he insulted my grandfather and threatened to beat him. What the fu*k!!

The other 2 were my uncle’s girlfriend and her lovely daughter who was supposed to be my Flower Girl. The mother declined after she and the uncle broke up/had problems. That totals to 9 who are not longer coming so far.

I have to say more than 90% of the rsvps I’m still waiting for are from Fiance family who insisted to be invited but they are now not sending their rsvps. More than 90% of my family confirmed almost immediately and it seems I will have to hunt down FI’s family, which really pisses me off since they demanded invitations!! There will be some family traditional ceremony this coming weekend and it is hoped that the decision on who will be coming will be taken there. I told Fiance that he must leave that ceremony with a final count of who is coming or not since I am not going to hunt down people who wanted to be invited!! They make me want to scream!!

We are looking for a maximum of 120 people in attendance and I am just praying for 100 accepting since that is the minimum required for the venue or else I will still have to pay for those not there up to 100!!

Hey ladies!  So I’m checking the mailbox every day and the rsvp’s have stopped coming in for about a week now.  Our deadline is September 4th, so I am already planning out the awkward follow-up phone calls for September 5th.

As of today, we have a total of 16 guests who have not responded.  With the holiday weekend, I think our rsvp’s will be forgotten about.  Anyone else getting frustrated with missing rsvp’s?

How many have you had accept/delcine so far? Accept-59 Decline-2 (+2 are not coming to dinner, but are coming to the dance) <br /><br />So exciting receiving them all! We have an online RSVP option, as well as a mailing one, so I’ve been getting e-mails and RSVPs in the mail. We also have a song request section on our RSVPs so it’s so fun seeing all of the different songs being requested! :)<br /><br /><br />

Date you send out your invites? Mid-August

How many invites? 60 invites, 120 people

Date RSVPs are due? September 25th

How many have you had accept/decline so far? 50 yes and 12 no’s.  Realistically I’m expecting 80(ish) people to come.  I have a lot of extended family that live out of town that I’m pretty sure won’t be there, but didn’t want to offend anyone by not sending an invite.   

I’ve also recieved a few that say they are coming, but didn’t write their name in, so I have no idea who this is that has responded and added a third (uninvited) person to come with them.  We still have a few weeks left, but our RSVP’s have slowly stopped coming in.

Due date: September 19th

 

Received: We have received responses from 68 people so far. We are having a destination wedding four hours away so we are super happy with the response so far. Final counts are due until the 26th so hopefully we won’t have to do too much chasing.

jenilynevette:  I hear ya! Our RSVP date is next Friday, the 19th, and they have slowly been coming in. Usually on Sundays I update the spreadsheet, but I didn’t yesterday because the amount we got back last week was so tiny. It made me sad. Hopefully this week we’ll see an influx – especially from some of my friends who I know are coming and just haven’t sent it back in.

kaseylynn:  We got one last week that had nothing but he decline on it. We, thankfully, numbered our RSVPs so it was easy to track down. But, seriously… bothered me so much until I could confirm who it was.

Kacie209:  That’s smart!  I didn’t even think about that until my cousin mentioned it to me after I had mailed everything out.  I’m guessing I can use process of elimination once I (hopefully) receive all the other RSVP’s back.  I’m assuming it’s someone with a kid (who else would respond for 3?) but I went through our list and nobody fits that description that hasn’t responded yet.  So….we shall see.  

On another note, does anyone else get a little perturbed when you hear of people verbally rsvp-ing to your mom or the Future Mother-In-Law instead of mailing the RSVP back?  I guess I should just be happy they are rsvp-ing at all…but I did pay for all that return postage.

kaseylynn:  I got that idea from something I found on Pinterest, and it has been a lifesaver. It’s actually easier on our spreadsheet to find the people, instead of searching by name (although listed alphabetically).

I’ve had friends say they’ll just bring them to me, and I’m like – no… mail! We paid for the stamp already so you might as well use it.
