All of the non-rsvpers from my side of the guest list were nos but all of the non-rsvpers from FI’s side were a yes. Such a wierd split!

My experience is that it’s a complete crapshoot. Trying to predict it is like all the methods of trying to predict if you will have a boy or girl, lol—After all is said and done overall statistics is still 50/50.

We had a few lost RSVPs and a few who forgot and said they were coming but the majority of no responses were declines.

Anyone I had to actually contact was a decline.  Some never got up with me at all.  It was a far larger number of people than I would expect (prob 1/3) and I kind of wish the same will happen to some of them when their turn comes (but not really b/c I like them all)

I think it is 50/50. The will-attends are those who say “I don’t have to RSVP! You know without asking that I wouldn’t miss your wedding, for the world!”

The other ones say “Oh crap, a wedding invitation. I don’t want to go to this thing. And I will look like a real ass if I decline by RSVP. I’ll just ignore it and lay low.”

chevaldame :  all but 1 of my approximately 40 were no. I said it before, my Mother-In-Law was surprised that I even had to ask if they were coming. 😒

No one related to either of us RSVP’d (more than 1/4 of the wedding…) but they’re 100% attending.  The friends who didn’t RSVP 100% did not end up making it, though a few tried to get their act together when I called (3 had either mixed up the RSVP date or, in one case, mixed up the wedding date… why he thought we sent out invitations for our wedding 14 months in advance beats me)
