We have three weeks to go until our RSVP date, which we set one month before our wedding. Every other day a new RSVP arrives, and I thought I’d give y’all a peek behind the scenes as to how quickly responses come in.
We sent out a total of 93 invitations. We have received responses regarding the person’s/group’s attendance by about over half (large pie chart)—but less than half if you go by official RSVP card response (small pie chart).
Response level per invitation
Now, if we translate the number of invitations into people, we invited a total of 143 people to our wedding (not counting children, or me & Mr. Bracelet).
Over half of our guests have given us a “yay” or “nay.” We know to expect a few more declines among the 68 unknown answers, but I won’t put them down as “nos” until it becomes official. I think our high number of nays stems from the fact that many people know early on if they can’t make it. I’m very much counting on our yays to increase to a total of 80-90 people.
