RSVP question...

I have a question about RSVPs it seems that when we first sent them out we got a huge wave of responses right back. We haven't seen any for awhile but, our deadline isn't until the 3rd.  Did you ladies have "waves" of responses come in?? and is it true that about 1/3 of people don't respond?

    Ok sweet, I feel a little better about it now. I'm not going to lie to you guys I had a weird moment of "I don't think anyone is going to come to the wedding" kind of blues today : /

    Right there with you.  Invitations went out around the 18th of July.  Right away we got a ton in (ok not a ton, but it seemed like it).  Total last week and the week before I think we got about 5-6 per week.  Our deadline is September 1st and these people better get moving on it or I might just go postal on them.  For whatever reason, this has been my hot button issue.  I would say as of right now with 15 days left to RSVP we have about 1/4 (maybe) of the RSVP's back.  What really gets me is that a vast majority of the ones we don't have back are family.  The crapper of this is also that we are having plated meals, so we have to know what each person is eating.  I might not care so much if that wasn't the case.  Ok, who am I kidding, I would still be annoyed.  I think like Medusia, we will have about 1/2 of them that we have to hunt down... lovely.

    Most of the one we have gotten back have all RSVP'd no and then there are some like deregniern said that are family that haven't yet either. I get anxious more than anything. Hopefully people come and party it up with us lol ;)

    Ours are due on the 8th of September.  We got a fair number back already...but there are definitely a lot that are still floating out there.  I find myself playing a guessing game, hahaha  It's funny too because some people that I know are habitual no-RSVP type people have already sent theirs in and others who are usually "on top" of things, still haven't sent theirs in.  I am just hoping that we won't have too many phone calls/emails to take care of around the deadline....we have a meeting with our reception venue the following week to go over final details....ugh!  Fingers crossed! Smile

    Our cutoff date is 8/27 and we've received 76 out of 136 sent.  We received a lot in the beginning and now it seems like one per day.  We've had almost all yes's which has been surprising but then there were a few that I was 100% sure would be there, and they RSVP'd "No."  I really think it's a toss-up and it makes planning close to impossible.  We have limited seating available and have to pay for additional chairs so I have to have an exact count.  After our cutoff date, we're definitely planning to call/email everyone so we can get exact numbers.
