    Nobody called me, they probably didn’t have anything to say about them. I did get a few immediate responses.

    Sending them out is so fun! Letting them go and seeing what happens is a big step.

    I just sent mine on Friday and so far, my Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law called, and a friend wrote on my wall.  I was surprised people already got them.  I was just glad to get them sent out.  It was one day before the six week mark!!

    I had a couple people mention it on my Facebook wall, but no calls or anything. For awhile I was worried people weren’t getting them because we had one sent back to us saying it was an incorrect address or something (but we double checked and it was the exact same as what we were told when we asked).

    I counted 6 weeks from the wedding date.  Our RSVP date is 9/20, which is 3 weeks before the wedding, and it gives people 3 weeks to reply.  Our final numbers are due to the caterer 10/3 or 1 week before the wedding.  We will have 2 weeks to follow and call people. 

    Most everyone who’s coming is family, and they all got Save-The-Date Cards.

    A couple of people called me – saying that they loved the invite and were very excited about coming. I included an RSVP card with instructions about submitting RSVPs online and how the website would answer questions about registry info and attire. But yet, I still got questions about the registry and what they should wear and they still haven’t RSVP’d on the website.

    Anyone who I talked to mentioned they had received it, but no one called just to say they got it.

    I had some friends send me text messages saying they got my invite and loved them. That was about it….we did have a lot of people call my Mother-In-Law, even though my house number was blatantly listed on them, since WE threw our own wedding.

    Mine aren’t set yet but I know that most would probably call my mom.  That is what happened with my STD’s. My friends just tld me in person.

    I received a couple of calls and everyone that I see tells me how much they love my DIY invitations!!  I sent mine out the end of July and received my first RSVP that same day!!!  I have a cousin who can be a little crazy, anyway she first called to tell me she received the invite and then how much she just loved them.  Then informed me that she put the RSVP in between our screen door and house door.  I guess she didn’t trust the mailman!!!  But I sure would’ve liked to have actually gotten the air time for the stamp I put on it!!! lol:)  I get so excited when we get the RSVP’s back.  I think since that day we have gotten at least one a day except for one Saturday we didn’t get any and I was a little sad:(  Sent out 150 and so far have received 50 or so back.  They have until the 18th of Sept, before I start getting worried!!

    No one called me but they did call my Mom to let her know they got them. I mostly got calls or texts when they received the Save-The-Date Cards. Many of my family members have never received the Save-The-Date Cards so they thought that was the invite, lol…

    I got a couple of emails or texts from my friends, but for the most part, people didn’t call when they got the invitations.
