June 2012 Weddings

Response Cards

Ladies, how you coming along with the replies? I've been bugging everyone for the past two weeks because at that time I only received 35 replies even though I mailed out 70 cards :( As of now, I've received 84 yes and 2 no. Tomorrow is the last call for the response cards even though I'm not due to give a final count until next week.

Re: Response Cards

  • I think we're doing pretty well!

    I told my mom the other day (they're coming to her house) that she's going to be so sad the day we don't get any. Her response was, "Nooooo!!!! Not until I have all of them!" haha At least I'm not in denial about them slowing down. 
  • We have all of ours now. I found out yesterday my uncle will "try to make it." I doubt he will come

    We are still waiting on a handfull of people FFIL is on it and calling people for us.  I hope to have them all by the weekend.

  • On our deadline of May 7 we still had 60 people that hadn't replied.  We called, emailed, FB guests in order to get the final count.  We were at the point where anyone that replied yes was $55pp.  So every person was important.  Our final count is due tomorrow (3 week mark), and in the end we still haven't heard from 6 guests.  My dad said it'd be much better to pay for the 6 and they not show, than to not pay and they show up.  So that's what we're doing...

  • Just updated my siggy with my numbers! waiting on 14 more people... 3 of which I know are coming but I haven't received their card yet so I don't know what they are eating!
  • My deadline was Tuesday, but a whole bunch of people literally did put their cards in the mail that day.  We're waiting to hear back from about 40 more people in total.

    Our deadline is tomorrow and we are only waiting on one couple! There are 6 people that told us no but didn't send in their cards. But one is on a boat in the Indian Ocean, and 3 are in brazil. So it's a safe assumption they aren't coming!

  • My deadline is next Tuesday. Still waiting on 41.45% to hear back from. I've heard verbally from a few, but I'm not changing my numbers until they send them in or after our due date.

    Oh, and my siggy has just been updated as well.

  • All my FI's coworkers decided to verbally tell him they were coming despite receiving invitation/respond cards. In turn, he forgot to tell me :( So I've been fb/text msg/call bombing everyone lmao. I've been so frustrated with this but tomorrow is the last day I'm contacting anyone. I have alternates that are ready to sub in so they'll be coming :)
  • I have just over half of them back, they still have another two weeks to get them in though so I think we'll be OK.

    Kelsey, yesterday was the first day without getting any back, and I was all angry that my mom didn't email me with an update.

  • I'm still waiting for 35 cards (of 145).  I'm going to wait until next week (1 week after due date) and then we'll start calling people.
  • I've had a lot of people just tell us verbally instead of sending the card back.  Family (FI's and mine) are the worst about not sending the cards back.  I can't help but think---I put a stamp on it so I want it back!  I'm still waiting on about a third (30).  My deadline in 5/23.

  • We are down to 4 outstanding. Our deadline was 3 weeks ago.

    -The same situation over here. I stamped AND addressed all responses card. This situation has annoyed me to no end.
  • We are waiting on about half, our deadline is May 30th.  I was under the impression that we would be meeting with our reception place on June 20th (for our wedding on the 30th) but due to logistical issues, we had to reschedule for June 13th and now I'm kicking myself for making the response date so late!

  • Ugh most people didn't send ours back in.....but we have responses from everyone, either verbal or through email.  I think we only got 4 or 5 response cards back.  I don't think everyone quite understood what they were for......even though I pre-stamped them and they were self-addressed.....

    This annoyed me also. My nana handed me her RSVP at Mother's Day brunch. She said she didn't want to waste the stamp! It's not like I can take the stamp off the envelope and reuse it

  • Our deadline isn't until May 25th. So far 108 are coming & 29 can't make it which leaves us waiting on around 113 people. I keep telling myself not to worry about it until June 1st but it's hard. I'm very jeolous of those who have all theirs in and accounted for. Nice work!
  • I went through all of our RSVP cards last night (deadline was Tuesday) and we are missing replies from 14 people (about 8 cards). I'm going to give them until Monday and then we'll start harassing but I'm pretty impressed with the timeliness. :-)

    I re-used all mine that were handed to me!  Thank you glue dots!  I carefully peeled them off the RSVP and put them on bills that were going out.
  • Mine are due May 25 and I am waiting on about 90...the people who have said they are coming just called. I only got 3 real RSVP's so far :( makes me crazy!!!

  • Mine are due May 27th, and I'm still waiting for about 1/2 of the cards.

    It's been a week since we got one (other than the one that was handed to me). Makes trips to the mailbox MUCH less exciting, especially since I'm not waiting on any packages either.

    We'll see what happens when I open it up today! I'm expecting a huge flood next week/week after.

    Really!? You must have been very careful. Everytime I try to pull off a stamp it tears in half
