  • poll: Were you disappointed by the number of your RSVP responses?

    No, I was happy with the number of guests that responded!

    Yes, I wish more people had been able to come to the wedding.

    Yes, I wish that less people had RSVP'ed "yes" to the wedding.

    Maybe this is just me, but 200 is a lot of people! You will likely get at least of the 50% still waiting to be heard from. Since its a couple days passed your deadline, I would say to start making calls to get those MIA. Even if all those you haven’t heard from say no, 200 is still larger than the “average” wedding and I think will still give you the effect you’re going for.  I don’t think anyone will notice the empty pews in the church, but if it is a concern, you could consider making it an open event so any church member can attend the ceremony.

    We invited 22 couples and had 2 that were unable to attend.  I think it depends who you invite what you can expect.  I fully expected everyone I invited to attend and they would have if they did not have circumstances that prevented them from doing do. 

    I would be said if I got no responses or a not of “NO” responses, of course.  But how well do you know those people?  Focus on the ones you really want there. 

    Also  – with a week to go, relax.  I never did get some of mine – and I only sent 22!  Give them a couple days after the date and then start following up.  Two people (guys, of course!) said “Oh crap, I was going to mail that, thought I still had time!”  Then there were a couple that I never saw, just had to call and ask if they were coming.
