I have our final numbers!!

113 accepted out of 134. So we have a total of 15.6% decline rate. I think we did pretty good 🙂

This actually allowed us to double the cocktail hour appetizers and meet our minimum at the same time!

We are still 1 day away but have about 40% outstanding. 57 Yes, 20 no. Today was all “no”s which was irritating since most were either family or people who had gone out of their way to ask for invites, and even ask where we were registered, and then pulled out. 🙁

Out of 90 total (more like 105 if you include +1s given out of courtesy, although we did not expect most of those people to take us up on the +1 offer, and most of them did not), we stand at:

Yes: 60

No: 3

Outstanding: 27

With 6 days to go until the deadline. (Ahhh!) Possibly might be 2-4 children added on, and a few of those 27 have indicated that they are coming in past conversations but not filled out the online RSVP.

As of today we’re waiting to hear back from 69 people out of 206. That’s not too bad! There are certain people that I know are coming that just haven’t sent in their card which is bothering me, but I’m overall pretty pleased! We have 17 more days until the RSVP deadline… I can’t believe how quickly time is flying. It will be October before you know it, Bees!

We’re currently at 45 yes, 21 no out of 92 (and I did a quick tally of definite yesses, we’ll have at least 60, not counting the people I’m not sure of).

 

Our deadline is the 20th, so we’ve got time before I have to start calling people!

Our RSVP date is tomorrow, and I am missing 50 some envelopes, lots of which have more than one person attached to them. SO annoyed! WTF people?

Blah I guess this is a good problem to have but a week after our deadline and everyone is accounted for. We wanted to have 150 guests and ended up with 170. I don’t even believe it since most of our guest list is from out of town, literally 3-4 hour plane ride away. Even family from out of the country is coming in and that was totally unexpected. More people= more expensive yikessss.

So our RSVP date is Friday and we’re waiting to hear from 18 more people. I just am having trouble understanding why these people couldn’t just mail their damn cards in!! Grrrr! Sorry for my vent!

I’m totally cool with this count, it was kind of what I was hoping for. 🙂
