I sent 50ish invites and I’ve had five (5) responses. The deadline is FRIDAY.

Ah, I know I have been guilty of this in the past. I know on some previous occasions I have completely forgotten or sent it at the last minute. I remember even calling a friend on the deadline because I realize I never mailed my card. Now that we are planning our own wedding and I see the related stress, I am way more diligent about sending them in! I’m sure we will also end up having to make tons of phone calls when our time comes…

@AlmostVangor:  Our wedding dates are different but we have the same deadlines you do.  We are still getting a few back each day but:

Invites- 104

Yes- 34

No- 2

Waiting on-68

I’ve already resigned myself to the fact that we’ll be calling lots of people, thats why I gave myself 2 weeks between the RSVP deadline and the caterer headcount but its just ridiculous

@helenberrycrunch:I’m so sorry, gosh ppl, what a pain in the butt.

I think that when it feels like the event’s a couple months away, people don’t feel urgency to reply. Hopefully they will get on it before your deadline – at least they’ve still got a couple of weeks! Mine are due on Friday and I’m waiting on 175 people…

Yes! We sent out almost 100 invites 2 weeks ago and we have gotten 13 cards back. Last week we got 10 back between 2 days, but since then its been very slow. Our RSVP date is May 5th, so I guess we’ll see how the next couple of weeks go.

Still waiting on about 100 responses as well with a reply date of May 4. Neither of our parents have even responded! I know they are coming, but we still need to know meal choices, etc.

@helenberrycrunch: I sent 50 also. We have received about 8. Deadline: tomorrow.

Why did I even put stamps on them.

Having the same issue and it is REALLY stressing me out..why can’t people just respond? Our deadline is tomorrow, we sent 140 invites including rsvp cards, only had approx half back and lots of those were verbal..hate hate having to chase people..it’s just plain rude not to respond as far as I’m concerned. I think though that sometimes if people haven’t organised a wedding themselves they just don’t get the whole deadline/caterers/seating plan urgency..Frown

@mrs-v-to-be:

I feel the same way and ask my fiance everyday “what’s wrong with people”??? I mean this is scary, you plan for 6 months, put  lot of money, time and effort into it thinking that you would have X number of people and then only 5 people respond when you know for sure that more than 5 are going to come… I don’t know how to deal with this RSVP issue 🙂 Plus, it’s weird to start calling people and ask if they intend to come, I mean do I really have to beg/chase people to come to my wedding?!

@BruinBee:So glad you understand! I know, I also keep asking my fiance how come people can’t just reply, even if they can’t make it, they could just reply rather than just silence for over a month..very strange! I must admit, I never thought this would happen or even be an issue. You’re right,it isvery scary to think how much planning/effort/money we have put into our day and people can’t even let us know for sure if they intend to come..I understand it’s not the most important thing in their lives but it’s curteous to respond surely..I always would. Thanks for understand and I hope you get lots of rsvps soon & don’t have too much arkward chasing to do! x
