My invites went out late June: 

Total invited ~250

rsvp yes: 89

rsvp no: 11

I have had a lot of people actually compalin about my method of rsvp (by phone or web site).  I don’t think it would have gone any different with standard rsvp cards.  My Mother-In-Law is already wanting to call people to make sure that they rsvp, lol.

We invited 210 (this makes me giggle because our first plan was to have a “small” reception at a restaurant that held 75).

119 are assumed to be coming (there is a lot of flakiness involved, but this is our best guess) and we haven’t heard from about 17 of the guests.

Invites sent June 23rd. Deadline is today, July 31. 

162- Yes 

21- No 

69- Have not RSVPed on time!

I sent out emails today. About 12 responded after I contactd them. So the real # of people who did not RSVP on time is 81. 1 party said they sent the RSVp and it must have been lost in the mail. 

I’m surprised how many people do not RSVP on time!

My RSVPs were due 6 days ago.  We mailed 88 invitations to 156 people and 15 plus ones.

We received back 59 RSVP cards and 5 timely verbal or email RSVPs.  Of the remaining 24, 15 more replies have been chased down.

Of the remaining 9:

2 are distant relatives of the groom.  Future Mother-In-Law advises writing them off, so I will.
1 is our officiant.
2 are coworkers of mine who I don’t expect to come.
1 is a pregnant friend who I’m in touch with and will let me know this week. 
3 are friends of my fiance.  He is driving me crazy by stalling on getting in touch with them!  The catering deadline is coming up!  He said he wants to call them himself, argh.

It looks we will have around 90 people there.  It’s a quasi-destination wedding, and some of our guests were peripheral / obligatory invites such as distant cousins.  So I am actually really happy with the size of the final guest list because I wanted the event to feel intimate, and I was not happy when the guest list exploded.

Today was our deadline! Here’s our tally –

Invited: 198 (HOLYYYY how did that get so big?)

RSVP’d yes: 134

RSVP’d no: 41

Haven’t replied: 23 people

Maximum amount of people (including bridal party): 169


Nice numbers, but unfortunately our online RSVP (the knot) did not work for some guests so I don’t know how many of the 23 people actually HAVE replied. Ughh. Is Facebook too innappropriate in regards to contacting them?
