I was SO EXCITED/RELIEVED to finally get our invitations in the mail. I sent one to us, just to see how they arrive. Lo and behold…we still haven’t received ours. However, my wife’s family have received theirs, and they’re 3,000 miles away.
One of my close friends from law school sent me a message yesterday wondering if she’s no longer invited. She lives in MA, and hasn’t received hers yet.
Note: the RSVP deadline is in 12 days.

When did you send them out?

I would probably contact those who haven’t RSVP’d and let them know that some people haven’t gotten their invitations and make sure they have received them.

- Wedding: January 2013 - Harbourfront Grand Hall
@KelannaDC: If you have time between the RSVP deadline and other deadlines that you have to tell vendors guest counts for I would wait until the deadline passes.
Otherwise you’re just hassling guests that haven’t had a chance to respond yet. If you hear from someone before like your friend obviously it’s fine to explain the situation before the RSVP deadline but where everyone else is concerned I would wait.
How many RSVPs do you have back? I think we had about 75% back at 10 days before the deadline. We had to hunt down several of DH’s friends for answers.

I sent them out 6 days ago. Most of our guests are local.
Thanks! I am so afraid of seeming like an OCD bride.
The wedding is in 33 days

That’s what I was afraid of…hassling our guests. We’ve received 4 RSVPs out of the 86 that we sent.

33 days!? Yikes…..call people now!!!!!!

Yikes, you sent them out 18 days before the RSVP deadline? Allowing for delivery, that’s cutting it pretty close. I would wait until the RSVP deadline to worry about RSVPs, but it might not hurt to make some calls explaining that some of the invitations may have been lost in the mail and you wanted to make sure the guests had received them.

I’d wait until the deadline passes. Sometimes things get held up and although I completely understanding the worry and eagerness to get your responses back, people are getting them so give it a little more time unless you need to know your numbers now.

I know. We cut it dangerously close. I had a health issue that made us question whether to have it at all (we’re actually already married). So, we waited. And now it’s crunch time. *hangs head in shame*

I would ask if people recevied them. Either an email where I blind copied everyone in or by phone call. Just be clear that you never received your own and are worried they might not have received their’s… just so it’s clear that you’re not houding them for their RSVP before the deadline.

I was just thinking about your wedding. I meant to look through the recaps to see! lol I wanted to see you in your pretty dress! 🙂
Don’t stress yet, give it a few more days. You’ll prob have to track down RSVPs anyways (unfortunately).

That’s good advice. Thanks!
I’ll definitely post pics once the deed is done. 🙂

I wouldn’t worry. I know in Canada domestic mail can be 7-10 business days depending. I know that local is usually within a couple of days but I’ve seen stuff take crazy amounts of time.
Wait until the RSVP deadline and then make some calls to those who haven’t RSVP’d yet.
