    Fantastic Leigh!! You have very good guests. As for me, my wedding is in less than 6 weeks & I still don't know exactly who is coming~! My FI's family is driving me crazy...I made him call them yesterday. SEND THE RSVP!!!!

    We sent out 40-ish STD's and invitations and at this point I think we will have approx 25 guests...but I budgeted for 45, so I'm good.

      OH, trust me....the only reason we have people already making reservations 8 months out is becuase there is a special rate that will expire on this Friday! Are you using a travel agent?

        We sent out 150 STD's I believe and we have about 70 people coming and we did it the same way, we told everyone they had until a certain date to book to get the best rate on the room. Also in my X-mas cards I also sent out a reminder and we sent out one final reminder a week before via email. It is great because now we know who is coming and even if we have a few stragglers add on that is fine as well. But for the most part we can plan our budget out correctly! Then again my FI and I are anal so that could be the reason as well!

          Yeah, it def helps to have a "deadline" somewhere in there! I've been kind of antsy about the OOT bags, and now after friday...will have a pretty darn good idea of how many of everything!(well, at least a better idea than before!)
          and we did STD's and two letters in the mail and a few email reminders....i think all of the reminders actually helped!!

            That is such good news!! It makes planning so much better (I was going to say easier) when you have a good idea of how many guests are actually going!!

              Yeah, I tried to use that tactic with my group...didn't work! yes, I'm using an TA, but since our guests are coming from California, Arizona & Texas, many of them are on their own in terms of finding decent airfare. Everytime I see a low fare (I am constantly trolling the net for these!) I email whomever it pertains to. At this point, I think it's just an RSVP problem. What cracks me up is that my FI's sisters, who have been married & know what this is like, still haven't sent their RSVP's although I know they are booked. HELLO, I need some numbers here people! OH well, I'm just going with it.

                6 weeks!!!! yeah, I'm not expecting a lot of the rsvp's either! Just a huge relief to know they have just made reservations for the AI resort! Most of our guests are just going to do airfare later....considering that we have 8 months until the big day!!!!!
                yeah, the in laws are starting to get me 2! I'm just not involving them with anything at this point on! And I have NO time for negative statements about ANYTHING!!!!!
