I mean, we had some of our guests actually be asked to be invited, and then they didn't even rsvp, and have not heard anything from them! I am wondering if it is too much to ask to pay- our tickets are 1180.00 per person for 4 nights at El Dorado Royale ( AI, Direct Flight)
I KNOW some of our guests thought this price was ridiculous.... My friend even relayed the message to me from them. But, we knew that was going to happen....

I figure if we spent money for invites, got addresses, put SASE/reply cards, gave people the option of yes-no-maybe and 2+ months to do it, and then paid to mail them... The least someone could do is put an "X" on a line, lick the envelope and mail it back.
Anyway, we sent out 144 invites and I didn't get reply cards back from 53 of them. That included several people in the bridal party. Those I can kind of understand since we knew they were coming, but it still would have been nice.
Over time, I casaully heard form people as I talked to them, or they called/emailed. Probably about 30 left at that point and I eventually got frustrated enough that I emailed any of the people who I had email addresses for saying the resort was needing to finalize numbers. Remarkably enough, I probably only heard back from about half of the people I emailed. As of now, I still have 14 outstanding invites, and I'm assuming those people won't be there!!!
Most remarkable to me were 2 couples who invited us to their weddings around the same time, both of which we RSVP'd to!!!
I had originally guessed about 80-90% RSVP rate! Man, I wasn't even close...

Now that I'm getting married in the Dominican Republic in July, I don't mind if people turn up that haven't told me, as it would be a nice surprise for me as well. Once everyone is there, i'm hoping then the numbers will be finalised and it won't be too stressful but I can see where everyone is coming from and you ask me this question again in 6 months time, maybe i will feel different.
(i hope that all made sense and sorry for the length of it)
