So far we have the following from List A

46 people accepted (23 households)

33 people declined (14 households)

 

The due date is July 31st I still haven’t heard from 25 people (8 households)

Once August 1st rolls in I have to email the ones that have yet to respond and politelly ask them if they have recieved the invitation etc….

 

Then I have List B to mail out and my the looks of it my full List B will be able to get invited. I have about 48 poeple on it (22 households). Most of them are co-workers etc..

 

I noticed stranglythat a lot of poeple are choosing not to bring their children even though on my RSVP’s it gives them a child’s meal option. Some are bringing theirs and the ones i though would, are not. Don’t get me wrong, i guess it’s good as more poeple get invited but I still find it odd.

@TwoStatesBride:  We have some out of state guests, but they are all immediate family and know the details and whether they will be able to make it. I’m printing them at home from a kit from Hobby Lobby, so I better start making them either way!

@hollyberry4:  

Omg, you are living my life! I am getting married Oct 4 as well! And this week is dedicated to assembling all the invitations! I am hoping and praying I will have them in the mail on Saturday, and the latest on Monday. 

Good luck!

Still waiting on about a dozen more.

We got our first no yesterday. I knew they were coming but it sucked. The guy’s wife is pregnant and they already have a kid. She’ll be in her 3rd trimester so she cant’ travel and it’ll be a PITA if he lives their baby with her for a weekend. So I understand, I’m just disappointed.

After a week I finally got a few RSVPs back yesterday, and they were all YES!  The best was from my two bridesmaids who wrote on the line to list any dietary restrictions “Allergic to everything except BEER” haha!

We got our first RSVPs three days after we sent out the invites.  So far, we’ve gotten about 85% yes and the nos are people that we figured were not coming or plus ones.  I think my Fiance is more excited about them than I am (and I am EXCITED!!).  We are both teachers and off for the summer, so we’ve been able to check the mail together during the day.  Today, he left for a meeting and texted me to text him if we got responses and who they were.  So cool to see him getting so excited!
