My rule of thumb is give people a week past the deadline.

Give them at least a five days. I’m a stickler to RSVP but I’d be annoyed if I got a call the day or two after the date.

You will get most of them after the deadline because people put them in the mail ON the deadline.  Give it a few days before you start calling.  Don’t worry, it will work out!

People are totally holding onto ours too. I mean they’re really pretty so maybe they just want to keep them? Our RSVP date passed already and we haven’t even gotten 1/2 back. Pretty shabby..

I think they will taper off and we’ll jsut have to get on the phone. It’s unfortunate, but the only way to find out if people are coming..

The graciousness of the RSVP has dies a painful death. I once had someone tell me they thought because I said “Please reply by…” (note I used the word PLEASE) it was optional!

Why not email some of them as well, it may but time instead of calling?

I think that some people put their responses in the mail the day of the deadline instead of factoring how long they will be in the mail. I would wait a day or two and start calling, because you don’t want to be too insistent if they sent them back and you just haven’t gotten it yet.

oh wow! this is not making me feel better! I need to make sure people reply! As our ceremony is at the State Capitol! 

Why are people so irresponsible ? 

 

Wait a couple days then let us all know ….

…and RSVP actually already includes “please” (répondez s’il vous plaît)! haha maybe they thought the two positives cancelled each other out?!? Seriously I never understand how so many people don’t answer straight away! So rude imo.. I hope you don’t have to spend hours calling people and that a few more have arrived today

I would wait to make calls until the end of the week. Sometimes people don’t put cards in the mail until the day of the deadline.

Ahh I would freak out!! I wish people understood how important an rsvp is especially for a wedding!, yes I am guilty of not always rsvp’ing always for a wedding yes… but not much of anything else… I now try to be better at it. : )

I asked the best man to follow up on his side of the family, and the maid of honor to follow up with mine.  I emailed anyone I had an email addy for, and had all the responses in by a month after the date.

The only difficulty was getting responses from Korea.  Two invitations keep coming back with insufficient address, but at this point, I think I can assume my second cousin, or is it first cousin once removed? My mother’s cousin, in any case, will not make it.
