I think that’s about how many we had outstanding too. Sorry to hear mermaid! Start the email and phone calling!

LOL see my post from a few minutes ago. I’m in the same boat and I only have a week before I need final numbers. I hate people sometimes.

Yup, I am almost there with you mermaid! RSVP date is this THursday (the 5th), we have around 25 missing cards and have not received any RSVP cards in the mail since last Thursday! SO frustrating!

Wow!  Our RSVP date isn’t until the 18th of this month and we are getting married on the 5th.  Those are really early RSVP deadlines, are you caterers just really anxious to know numbers that early?

We mailed out 68 invitations and got slightly over 30 reply cards back. The only reasonable explaination I can think of is that putting a pre-paid reply card in the mail is too hard.

@Curlysue: My RSVP date is the 5th of August. It states in the catering contract that I signed that final numbers must be submitted 10 days before our event. I felt most comfortable having a couple of weeks to track people down and it made sense to send out the invites early because we had a lot of Out of Town guests invited.

@Curlysue: Our RSVP date is the 20th and we’re getting married on the 5th as well.

We actually have to let the caterer know on the 20th the final headcount but I figure we’ll just start tracking people down on the 16th (chances are if they haven’t sent their RSVP back by then they’re not going to).

My RSVP date is the 20th.  I sent out invites early last week. I am REALLY hoping that I do not have the same problem. Why is dropping a prepaid envelope in the mail so difficult!??!

I feel your pain. My fiance had to tell me not to make a list of the late/non-repliers so that, should they get married, I can retaliate. He said it was petty 😛

@Mermaid1082:I feel your pain.  I’d be celebrating if I was only missing 58 responses though … our RSVP date has passed and we’re still waiting to hear back from 98 people.  That’s more than half the people we invited.

We had 70% outstanding at the RSVP date.  Brutal.
