I want more response cards!!

Our RSVP date is August 5th...so far we've only received about 50 response cards back. We're still waiting on about 150...why do I have a feeling that even though I include the response card and the postage, I'll still need to call people?

I need to make a correction direction card. I switched my North and South on the ceremony location and the reception location. DUH! LOL. You're not behind, you're still within the 6-8 week time frame. I sent my out early since FI's family is all east coasters (wedding's in Illinois) and I wanted to make sure they had enough advanced notice.

You're definitely going to have to call people, b/c some people just won't send it back for whatever reason. My RSVP date was 7/11/08 and I'm still waiting on 4 or 5 people to finalize my guest count, so don't stress, it just happens.

I'm dreading that. We don't have to send our invites until next year but I have a feeling that we will receive the RSVPs late. I also have this icky feeling that not a lot of people will come. Maybe it's because most of my guests are from OOT.

I had a TON of people not respond.  I had family & BM's call some people, and some I called myself.  You'll also find a lot of people will let you know if they're coming or not in passing.  It's just the way it is I'm afraid  :(

As surprising as it is to us brides, many people don't realize the reason/purpose for the rsvp's.  If they themselves have not planned a wedding or large event, they don't grasp the process. 


I'm in the same boat as some of you ladies...I sent invites about on July 7th.  I've received a little under 1/2 back and I've asked for a response by Aug. 1st.  I know I'll be calling.  I've already let my mom and FMIL know that I'll be asking for their help with their friends and "distant" relatives.  When calling, you only need to say that you need to know whether or not to reserve a seat for them and to ensure there is enough food.

Also ladies, It helpful if family/ friends spread the word when in general conversation before the date- we have gotten a few more to RSVPs & to light some fire under their ass to just stick the self-addressed and stamped envelope in the freakin mail...


Its rediculous- and the main reason why Im disappointed in b/c they don't even FILL THE CARD OUT RIGHT or PUT HOW MANY or THEY HAVE HAD WEDDINGS/GETTING MARRIED AND SHOULD KNOW THIS!  Morons- geeezzeeeeeee


okay sorry I feel better :)

I am getting people responding to FMIL, are any of you dealing with that, instead of dropping the rsvp in the mail, they call her and say they are going to come. My fiance keeps reminding me not everyone is on my time schedule!
