October 2012 Weddings

RSVP's

Oh my! We're waiting on almost 1/2 of our rsvps still to come in.  The wedding is October 6th.  I'm getting worried cause our venue's max compacity was originally ok, but our guest list grew over & now I'm worried we're going to have too many people!  Our decline rate is only 15% right now!!  I wish people would get their RSVP's in!

Re: RSVP's

  • Yea, I've only received 40% of our RSVPs back.  The deadline is Saturday, so I'll be calling Sunday since my final head count/meal count is needed by Monday.  My problem is the opposite, I don't think I'm going ot make me 125 minimum.

  • My requested deadline was also this past Saturday. I gave a list of FI's family to FFIL and I will start following up with my family later this week.
    It doesn't have to be perfect to be everything I want!

  • My deadline was Friday...they're still trickling in, and FI and I have started hunting for the stragglers! Probably the most worrisome is that a couple people have said they sent theirs, but we haven't gotten them yet. WTF is taking so long, Postal Service?!

  • Our requested deadline is this Friday, and we're still missing over half! We don't actually need a head count for the venue until the 24th though, so we have plenty of time to call people.

    I'm so glad we requested the replies way before we needed them though...I can't imagine the stress of trying to get a hold of people in short notice!

  • Just got 2 more today- another 7 people saying YES and the biggest unanswered questions dealt with.  My great aunt and uncle have a bunch of  kids that no one really talks to, but of course we have to invite to keep the peace... Thankfully, those 20 or so people are NO's!!!  Yay!

    <div>Have you figured in you, FI, parents, wedding party, etc.?  That might bump the number a bit</div>

  • We are still waiting on about 4 RSVPs to come back.  I really wish people would just send them back.  I mean its not really that hard.

  • I finally got around to actually counting and recording our responses today. Our deadline is this Saturday and out of 81 invitees, 28 people have responded. Uggggh, I don't want to track people down. My mom also just told me today that my aunt isn't going to return the RSVP because it's pretty and she wants to keep it with the invite. Umm, as flattering as that is, I did address and stamp an envelope for you, so if you want to keep the RSVP you can at least grab a scrap of paper to write on and send that to me!
  • Ugh! I just got a email from someone saying they were RSVPing... with their plus 1... I didn't give you a plus 1!!!  Why does everyone need to add people to their invite that was clearly addressed to specific people.  I know for a fact this girl doesn't have a BF, so who in the world is she bringing?

  • Ok... so my friend that just told me she was bringing a plus one. Which the invite did not include a plus one.  I asked her the name & she said she didn't know.  I said "'I'm confused. You don't know cause you didn't ask or you haven't decided who to ask? Just let me know cause we have limited space & I didn't know there was going to be a plus 1"  not trying to be rude, but come on!
