RSVP cards are awesome

I almost decided to do all online RSVP's to save money... at this point in my planning I'm so glad I changed my mind, for multiple reasons.
  1. Getting a little postcard or 6 in the mail every day really puts an end to the monotony. Generally, my mailbox is flooded with Victoria's Secret catalogs (seriously, have they heard of sustainability?) and bills. It is oh so refreshing to get a wedding RSVP amongst the crap. 
  2. As I start to get more and more 'yes' RSVP's you start to feel really loved. What? It's good for the self esteem... not to mention, when wedding planning gets me frustrated, I just think of all of these loved ones who are planning on coming and enjoying all of our hard work. :)
  3. The little notes... "We can't wait!" or "We love you both!" It just makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

So at this point, with exactly one month before our RSVP deadline of 9/26, here is where our count stands...
  • YES: 71
  • NO: 16
