FI thinks they would but I'm not sure.
If they don't RSVP by website do I then send them a letter to remind them or do I give them a friendly call....
Also when did you send out STD's and when did you send your invitations (I know there is a thread on this but can't find it)

As far as sending out Invitations after STD's, I think I may send them out 2 weeks after the STDS.

Honestly, no matter how you do it, some people will simply not reply and you will have to follow up with them. Sad, but true. Call them, email them, whatever you need to do that works.
We sent our STD's 9 months early and our invites 3 months early. You have to balance too early (people aren't ready to deal with it yet) and too late (people don't have time to book a trip).

Now if people do not use her, and do not RSVP on my site, then I'm $crewed, but I'm hoping everyone follows directions =) Everyone has been so excited when they book, they have been calling and telling me...
I had our website on our STD and I'm also putting RSVP to our website on our invites.
We sent our STD at the end of January and are sending our invites at the begining of April. It's 4 months in advance, but I want to give everyone advance notice that it's near...
Hope that helps!

As far as timing, we sent our STD's in January and will be sending out the Invites hopefully by the end of this month. If you send them too close together I don't think it has the same effectiveness, but if you send one or the other too early or too late it also looses that effectiveness.

I mailed my stds in August, and my wedding is in June. I wish I would have sent the stds sooner, some people had already planned family vacations during our wedding weekend.
I mailed my invites last week for my June wedding. I would have liked to have sent them later, but our room block is being released March 21st, so I wanted to give people time to book their room. But, it felt strange to send the invites out almost 4 months before the wedding....oh well.

But we also have some older family members who aren't as PC savvy and a couple who don't have PC's too. So I'm thinking we'll send a semi-RSVP with our STD to get a feel for how many rooms to block and cut back on formal invites. Then the formal invites will go out with mostly online RSVP references and a handful of certain people will get cards to mail back.
Damn, so much to think about and figure out!!!
