Does anybody else get stressed about waiting for rsvps to come back? Then when there isnt any in mail u feel sad. They have 15 more days and I only have half of them back. Upsetting!!!

    Unfortunately, this is pretty typical. All you can do is wait and then reach out once the deadline comes and goes. You're definitely not the only one!

    That's pretty typical! We had to contact 60 people after our RSVP deadline passed. I checked the mail every single day for the 6 weeks people had their invites, we received 2-5 per week pretty steadily. We included pre-stamped and addressed RSVP envelopes and a way for people to RSVP online, and it still didn't work for 60+ people!

    I feel the same way! Like some people I KNOW are coming haven’t sent theirs in. My FH keeps reassuring me that people like to wait until the last minute. I hope (and i dont hope) that thats true! And then my dad’s cousin moved and didn’t even feel the need to tell me😒 people are crazy!

    Hi and yes absolutely. My wedding is next month and half ended up calling or texting that they were coming. Like you said everyday checking the mail. Wasted post office trip and stamps on many.

    Yeah I’m with you. I didn’t think I would get so disappointed about not getting mail or finding declines😒. I told myself not to stress out about it cuz I have time and still will get a response by calling anyone who hasn’t replied 🤷‍♀️.

    I only got 16 back out of 52, one texted saying that they forgot to send the rsvp but they will be coming and one that I only got an unsealed envelope no rsvp card inside and no forwarding address on the outside 😂 I’ve narrowed it down to my FH side since it was stamped by the post office on that side of the state, it’s 6days past my rsvp deadline (August 8th). I’m gonna start calling people tomorrow I was trying to give the mail some time to work 😂but it’s been 4 days since the last one came in. And I’ve had one guest say that they haven’t received their’s yet. I still have 11 days until the venue needs their finally head count.

    We are in the same boat and waiting on 60 RSVPs still! It's nerve-wracking for sure!

    I feel you. We have 5 days left and as of yesterday we had 84 people still unaccounted for. I’m sure we will having to reach out to about 30-40 people to get all their counts.

    Our RSVP date was Saturday and I am still working on tracking down 33 people to see if they are coming or not. I know that some are coming because its bridal party or immediate family, but I need to know if they plan to bring a guest or not since we gave everyone over 21 a plus one if they are single. My stress level is at a 100 between having to work full time plus deal with all the last minute pieces for our wedding. My bachelorette party is this weekend and at the present moment I don't think I can even enjoy it.

    My RSVPs are due back tomorrow and we only have 70% of them back. One of my bridesmaids and my dad (both of them I am close with and know they are coming) have yet to send them 🤔

    my dad literally said he didn’t realize he was supposed to send it haha

    I am stressing. Think I sent mine out too early. But I read online to number the RSVP cards & write down who got what number. That's what I did so now I can just call the person & ask why they didn't send it back.
