And I still have 80 people who have not responded, 80!!! This is unreal, are people actually so inconsiderate that it is too difficult to check a box and put that preaddressed prestaped envelope back into the mailbox?? I know that after this I will never waste any time getting an RSVP back into the mail, you either can or cannot come, so why hold onto it for months?

Being a bride definitely changes your perspective on a lot of things wedding-related, especially RSVPing in a timely manner! Here’s to hoping you get a lot of responses in the mail today and tomorrow! 🙂

We had 51 people to chase down after our deadline passed. Ugh.

@Beckster329: Out of those 51, approx how many said yes? My mom seems to think all of these people will be NOs, I don’t think so considering who they are.

- Wedding: July 2012 - Baltimore Museum of Industry
I sent this email out a couple of days after our deadline- got the slackers in line:
“Hey- Just wanted to check on your RSVP for our wedding on July 13th. We know how easy it is to let these dates get away from you, however we need to give our caterer a final number of guests. If we haven’t received your reply card by June 23rd, we’ll have to assume that you are unable to attend. Hope you’ll be able to join us on the big day.:

I will be interested to see how other bees respond to this poll. Today is our RSVP deadline, and we are still waiting to hear RSVP’s on 69 invites out of a total of 175 invites. This data includes today’s mail, so that means we have heard back on 60% of invites and are still waiting to hear from 40%. This isn’t horrible, and from what I hear, its pretty common, but I still want to say c’mon people, put a few hash marks on a card and MAIL IT BACK NOW! lol…

you have to personally stalk them so you can treat them to a fancy dinner and night of dancing.

I only bothered to track down people I was really hoping would come (my dad, for example). We had quite a few non-responders, but I called/e-mailed maybe 10? About half of them are coming. The others, well, if you are too lazy to pick a meal & drop the card in the mail, then I’m too lazy to chase you down.
We did, however, have a handful of people who didn’t mail their RSVP until the deadline or a day after, so give them an additional week before you start hounding people.

Just to let you know I thought that anyone who didn’t rsvp would be a “no” Turns out some were yeses. Track down everyone who you aer particularly close with and/or is within driving distance of the venue

So I sent out an email Monday, we got a lot of appologies for forgetting to mail them back. About 75% of the people that did not RSVP are coming. So were they going to just show up??? That could have turned into a really bad situation if I hadn’t contacted them… People kil me.
