@katehh08:  I haven’t sent mine out yet but I’m curious to see what everyone says. We did not invite over or capacity however we really only planned for 260 and out jumped to 310! It would be nice to see everyone, but at the same time it would be nice to have extra room at our venue instead of everyone being squashed together!

We’ve gotten 6 no, 34 yes, BUT 4 of those people apparently can’t come to our reception? One of which is the BEST MAN!

New bee here 🙂 we sent out about 100 invites and have had only four declines and I’m happy to say everyone has already RSVPd (RSVP date is March 30th)!

Out of 68 invites sent, 17 have sent their RSVP’s with 15 yes and 2 no’s. It’s been three weeks sent we sent them, and I am anxious because not that many people have replied yet.

We sent out 100 invites and only 4 have declined (and we have all our RSVPs back two days before the RSVP date)

We invited 43 people. We have 22 yes’s. That’s 51%. 13 of the 21 no’s, I never even heard back from. I just put them as no, and a few of them either told me “no” after my deadline, or told someone else who is coming and told them to tell me no. Totally classless IMO.

As sad as it sounds, the way people have behaved about RSVPing to my wedding is making me reevaluate my relationship with these friends and relatives. I don’t think I’ll be going out of my way to be at their future events.

Our acceptance rate is about 70%. All but about 9 people RSVP’d before the deadline.

We invited 194 people. Right now we are at 164 yes’ and waiting on 11 more indivudal people, cutoff is April 1.. I think those will mostly be no’s. So our acceptance rate will be around 85%

@butterflybride6:  I’ve thought the same thing. It’s SO rude to not send a reply.. a few people I have text or emailed a friendly reminder that the cutoff date is coming soon if I haven’t gotten their RSVP, and they can’t even take the time to reply to that. I’m hoping they don’t come now..

We had around a 60% acceptance rate. We also sent a ton of “courtesy invites” so I expected a lower acceptance rate.

We had to chase down RSVPs like nobody’s business though. Oy Vey.

We are having a destination wedding, invited 193 (some courtesy invites) and 115 are attending. That’s about 59% acceptance. We had about 10 no-show-replies.

We’ll have 110 guests out of 142 invited.  We did have to chase down some replies, particularly since we’re offering a choice of entrees and need to know our guests’ selections.  But we enlisted our moms to help out with follow up and it was pretty painless.  I always send in reply cards on time, but in the future I’m going to send them ASAP, now that I know how eagerly the bride and groom are awaiting the mail each day!

We invited about 150, with probably 30 of those going to people we knew for sure would never come. We ended up with 93 at the actual event. I think we had like 6 no shows.
